Moviemaking duo JOEL and Ethan Coen are still coming to terms with their career success, insisting they find life on the Hollywood A-list "frightening" and "disconcerting".
The Coen Brothers are currently riding high after their latest movie True Grit was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Director and the coveted Best Picture prize.
But, despite scooping four Oscars for No Country For Old Men in 2007, the siblings still don't feel comfortable on the glitzy party circuit.
Ethan Coen explains, "We are like Hollywood insiders now. It's really weird... And Matt Damon is your best buddy. Which is nice. He's a nice guy. But it's also weird... Suddenly this great hand reaches down and deposits you at the Academy Awards. It's frightening. And disconcerting. You wonder what you did wrong."
His brother Joel adds, "At a certain level what you do doesn't feel any different from when you were messing just around in your backyard with a movie camera. It's still just messing around... One day you wake up and you realise that's happened and it's a shock. You find yourself at the Academy Awards, or wherever the hell it is, and suddenly you know all these people. And you think: 'How the f**k did I get here?'"
