Nighy Won't Watch His Films

Actor BILL NIGHY refuses to watch himself in movies - because he finds the experience "distressing".
The Love Actually star has starred in more than 30 films, including the highly successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, since the 1980s, but he finds it difficult to watch himself on the big screen.
He says, "I try to never watch. It takes me so long to get over it and I'm always so downcast. I find it really distressing. Maybe when I'm very old, I'll sit down and watch my earlier work. But it will just depress the hell out of me. I'm sure I'm not alone in this.
"It's not like I'm some weirdo. You just see how far short it falls from where you might have imagined you were heading. I have a perfectly average skewed perception of myself. We often don't know what we're like. I hope that's the case because otherwise I'll kill myself."
