Felicity Jones has revealed that she finds watching herself on screen to be a 'process of self-hatred'.

The Invisible Woman star 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."

Jones added that she sometimes channels her Invisible Woman character Nelly when she is faced with a difficult decision in real life, "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."

Nelly is the mistress of Charles Dickens, played by Ralph Fiennes, in the period drama that also stars Kristin Scott Thomas and Tom Burke. It hits cinemas on February 21.
