Felicity Jones hates seeing herself on screen

Felicity Jones says watching herself on screen is a process of "self-hatred".

The 30-year-old actress - whose latest film 'The Invisible Woman' will be released in Britain next month following its premiere at the Telluride Film Festival last August - is extremely self critical when she has to see her movies an and always picks faults with her performances.

Speaking at 'The Invisible Woman' UK premiere at London's Kensington Odeon cinema on Monday evening (01.27.14), she told BANG Showbiz: "[When I watch myself back] It's horrible. It's horrible. You're just going, 'I wish I had done that differently, don't like that, that looks awful'. It's just a process of self-hatred."

Felicity plays female lead Nelly Ternan - mistress of Charles Dickens who is played by director Ralph Fiennes - in the period drama and she was drawn to her character's "strength".

The brunette beauty also looks to her alter-ego when she has key decisions to make contemplating how Nelly would cope with the situation.

She added: "I felt like there was a very quiet strength to her. When I'm in a difficult situation I still think what would Nelly do in this situation. I think she was someone who in society she didn't have a lot of options, she was rather strained by the society of the time but she's someone who fought for her sense of self and independence. It was just a great thing to play for an actress."

Felicity was joined on the red carpet by her co-stars Ralph - who also directed the project - Kristin Scott Thomas and Tom Burke.
