London: Dame Judi Dench, whose acting career spans more than 50 years, has admitted that she hates to see herself acting on the big screen.

Despite her success, the 77-year-old stalwart of British film cannot bare to watch herself on screen immediately after a filming role.

“It’s better for me as time goes by. I watch my performance after I’ve forgotten all about it, because otherwise I get fixated and my judgment goes too,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

One character the ‘Macbeth’ star may have to get used to watching, however, is 007’s spy boss M.

Dench was recently spotted back on the set of the new James Bond movie ‘Skyfall’ and the actress looked happy to be back.
“There are some brilliant sets and it’s being directed by Sam Mendes, who I worked with, oh, when he was a little baby boy really.

“It was about the second or third thing he did. He directed me in The Cherry Orchard on stage, so now he’s doing this,” she added.
