London: Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron says she hates watching her own films.

The 35-year-old actress however enjoyed watching her Oscar winning performance of a serial killer in the 2003 film `Monster`, reported Contactmusic.

"I hate to see myself on screen. When I did `Monster` it wasn`t too bad, because I didn`t look like Charlize Theron," said Theron.

The South African born beauty, who was also the producer of `Monster`, said that the low budget worked in favour of the film.

"During the rough cut I had to watch a lot of my scenes over and over again. I would slit my wrists if I had to watch my other films that often.

"The fact that we didn`t have a lot of money saved us, this way everything seemed a lot more authentic. With a bigger budget we automatically would have used prosthetics, but fortunately we weren`t able to afford more than false teeth," added Theron.
