They've been gratifying in other ways, but this was a whole different type of creative satisfaction

Justin Long thinks he is a "s***ty" actor.

The 'He's Just Not That Into You' star is astonished by his successes and says his loved ones are equally surprised that he has managed to do so well in Hollywood.

He said: "I'm surprised as probably most everyone is, everyone but my mother, who's like, 'No. I knew it.' No, she's not, actually. She's shocked, as well. But not a day goes by when I don't count my blessings and have an awareness of how fortunate I am. I don't come from a classically-trained background. I don't have, like movie star looks. let's face it. I'm kind of a s**ty actor."

Justin has so little confidence in his abilities, he admits he is terrified every time he is given a new acting challenge.

He added to Dark Horizons website: "I did a movie called 'Afterlife' that was a really intense kind of dramatic role and I found it so terrifying to do, because I didn't know that I'd be able to go to these places. But it was also incredibly gratifying, in a way that a lot of movies I've done haven't been, in that way. They've been gratifying in other ways, but this was a whole different type of creative satisfaction."
