We sometimes can’t stand watching ourselves in videos or hearing our voices from a recording. Daniel can’t stand it either. “I never liked watching myself on film, but I do make myself sit through it,” And it’s especially true with his sixth Harry Potter movie because Daniel hates his performance in that movie.“It’s hard to watch a film like Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince because I’m just not very good at it. I wouldn't say I like it. My acting is very one-note, and I can see I got complacent, and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across. My best film is the fifth one (Order Of The Phoenix) because I can see a progression.”

Although the superhero movie grossed 82M dollars and achieved several awards, Halle Berry wasn’t happy with her performance in the film.

She revealed, “The director was like, ‘It looks too real. It looks too painful. Can you be prettier when you cry?... Don’t do that thing with your face. Just make it flat. We can CGI the tears in.”
Then, she doubted her acting abilities, “It all got me thinking, Am I not good enough? Are my instincts and my emotions not good enough? Do people hate them so much that they don’t want me to be a natural person?”
