Scottish actor Billy Connolly is dreading promoting his new movie - because he loathes attending film premieres.

The comedian unveils his new project THE MAN WHO SUED GOD at a London screening tonight (13AUG03), but it's not a prospect he relishes, because he hates watching himself on screen.

Connolly, who plays a lawyer-turned-fisherman who sues the church after his boat is destroyed by lightening, explains, "I hate premieres - I hate watching myself on the screen.

"I keep expecting to see Robert De Niro up there and then think, s***, it's me again."
