Colin Farrell has confessed he's "not really a fan" of his own work.

The Dublin-born actor admitted he can be critical when he watches himself in films.

He said: "I'm not really a fan of my own work to be honest but I do detract a lot of enjoyment from the experience of doing the work - I love it, and hate it at times, but I'm never ambivalent about it."

The star went on: "But it's tricky, you can get very critical and it wouldn't be the healthiest thing to have Colin Farrell nights in my living room every Saturday!"

The three films he says he can watch without thinking that he "ruined by my mere presence in them", are In Bruges, for which he won a Golden Globe award last year, The New World and new movie Ondine.

In Ondine, Farrell plays an Irish fisherman whose life is transformed when he catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his fishing nets. It opens in cinemas on March 5.
