Moon Bloodgood has a tough time watching her performances
In the same interview, Bloodgood says it’s difficult to see herself in TV shows and movies. She finds “herself critiquing her performances. “I watch myself on screen, and nine out of 10 times I’m so bad,” says Bloodgood in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“I just cringe. I force myself to watch the show because I need to do press and remember the storylines, but I literally go, ‘Awwwww.’ Sometimes I say, ‘That’s not so bad.’ My husband sees my insecurity and he says, ‘You’re missing enjoying how good you can be.’ But I watch some of the greats. And then I watch me and go, ‘Oh, my God, how do I get hired?’”
