Roth: I want credit for my work

Eli Roth gets cross if he is not recognised for his work

Eli Roth has said it's vital to "stick up for yourself" in Hollywood.

The director, best known for horror flicks Hostel and Cabin Fever, said getting credit for his work was vitally important.

He told Variety: "Every single time I see a cut of any of my trailers, if my name's not in it I throw a fit, I go crazy - I tell them 'Go f*** yourselves!' and they immediately say 'We're sorry! We didn't know!'."

"You have to do that. If you don't stick up for yourself, nobody else will."

Eli also revealed first impressions mattered when he was trying to get backing for his latest movie Aftershock, which he wrote, produced and stars in.

After just three weeks of filming, the star produced a trailer so he could work out how to sell the film.

"I showed that (trailer) to Bob Weinstein, and he bought the movie off the trailer," Eli said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
