Danny Dyer: "I'm my own worst enemy"

Exclusive: Dyer talks career struggles

In issue 213 of Total Film magazine – the Winter Preview Issue out now!– we bring you some amazing exclusives from the biggest, mightiest movies coming your way over the next few months .

Inside the issue – which is available for just £1.99 on your iPad – we pick the brains, exclusively, of one of the UK's most contentious and entertaining actors, one Mr Danny Dyer.

In our no-holds-barred interview, Dyer freely admits that while his career got off to a roaring start, his recent cinematic output has been far from stellar.

"I started my career and I couldn't put a foot wrong," he says. "It was like, 'Oh, who's that guy?' 'It's Danny Dyer.' 'Oh, he's really good. He's nicked the film.'"

"[But then] I did too many people too many favours... I realised, 'Actually, fucking hell, I'm becoming a bit of a joke here.'... I'm my own worse enemy. I don't blame anyone but myself."

For more honest revelations from Dyer, including his enthusiasm and pride for his new revenge-thriller Vendetta, and a suited-and-booted photo shoot like the images featured above, and a whole host of other mega-names (including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gillian Anderson, Javier Bardem and many more, pick up the brand-new issue 213 of Total Film magazine, which is out now).

We focus on the most exciting winter movies and TV - including The Wolf Of Wall Street , American Hustle and Doctor Who , The Walking Dead and many more - taking a close look at Hunger Games follow-up, Catching Fire .
