Daniel Day-Lewis has revealed that he still feels bitter towards directors who treated him like "filth" early on in his career.

The Nine star, who has received two 'Best Actor' Oscars, said that most performers have to deal with rejection when they first start out in the industry.

Day-Lewis told PA: "Most dancers, actors and singers get treated like filth at auditions. You never forget that, do you?

"I mean every now and then I bump into some of the directors that treated me that way when I was a kid and they're all over me like a rash and you can't forget it because you're so vulnerable."

Nine is due for release early next year.
