Keira Knightley BLASTED By Her Director On Begin Again: 'I'll Never Make A Film With Supermodels Again'

no title

Why would he say this… especially TWO YEARS after the film was released?!

So unprofessional!!

Director John Carney is speaking out about Keira Knightley's work on Begin Again, a movie where the actress was tasked with playing a songwriter dumped by her boyfriend (played by Adam Levine) who starts over with a former record label exec (Mark Ruffalo).

Carney, speaking to The Independent, absolutely demolishes Knightley and her work on the film, beginning by saying:

"I think that's what you need as an actor; you need to not be afraid to find out who you really are when the camera's rolling. Keira's thing is to hide who you are and I don't think you can be an actor and do that."

But wait — it gets worse!

Carney continues:

"[…] It's not like I hate the Hollywood thing but I like to work with curious, proper film actors as opposed to movie stars. I don't want to rubbish Keira, but you know it's hard being a film actor and it requires a certain level of honesty and self-analysis that I don't think she's ready for yet and I certainly don't think she was ready for that on film. As much as I tried to make it work I think that she didn't quite come out as a guitar-playing singer-songwriter."

Um… wow!

The film was predominantly met with positive reviews, for what it's worth, but apparently Carney was NOT feeling it.

The final verdict? Well, for him, it's pretty simple:

"I learned that I'll never make a film with supermodels again."

Wow!
