Danny Boyle Feels Guilty for Making Money More Than Teachers

The 'Slumdog Millionaire' struggles to enjoy his success because people working in more important industries earn far less than his salary.

Oscar-winning movie-maker Danny Boyle struggles to enjoy his successful career - because he feels "guilty" making more money than teachers and nurses earn. The "Slumdog Millionaire" director became a revered film-maker following his work on a series of hit movies including "A Life Less Ordinary" and "Trainspotting".

But he struggles to enjoy the fruits of his labor - because workers in more "important" industries earn far less than his salary. Boyle tells Britain's The Times, "I have always felt guilty about my sisters, who became teachers, doing more important jobs than me and getting paid f**k all, comparatively. So the answer to enjoying success is: No. Only in a very private way."

"I always doubt my success, which is a good thing. I see other people enjoying it in a more emphatic way, and I think, fair enough, but I could never naturally do it. I can only pretend to do it. You watch how it's done and think, 'I can do that.' But I never genuinely feel it. Part of me always thinks I'm a charlatan. Alongside every other creative person, I'm always waiting to be found out."
