Danny Boyle doesn't want yes men

Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire cleaned up at the Oscars in 2009

Danny Boyle has said there is a downside to winning eight Oscars.

His film Slumdog Millionaire came away with a haul of Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Picture in 2009.

"One of the problems of having a big success like that worldwide is that nobody will tell you when you're wrong," the filmmaker said.

"You can get a very distorted impression of your own self after a big success like that.

"People want to please you and they think you know everything, which you don't clearly."

Danny made his latest film Trance while planning the Olympic opening ceremony.

The Trainspotting filmmaker recalled how he'd spend part of his week attending to all sorts of admin as part his Olympics duties.

"And then you'd go off and make a film about sex and violence and the psychological landscape of a psychotic. It was like, 'Wow, great!'," he added.

:: Trance is in cinemas now.
