Begin Again Director Apologizes For SLAMMING Keira Knightley!

John Carney is SUPER sorry.

At least he's admitting he was wrong!

Director John Carney recently BASHED Keira Knightley's acting abilities from his 2013 flick Begin Again, and it really wasn't pretty.

But now, the Irish filmmaker has revealed that he's personally apologized to the British beauty, and is also publicly backtracking on his controversial comments.

On Wednesday, the Dublin native took to Twitter to issue a sorry statement after slamming the "supermodel," writing:

"I said a number of things about Keira which were petty, mean and hurtful. I'm ashamed of myself that I could say such things and I've been trying to account for what they say about me. In trying to pick holes in my own work, I ended up blaming someone else. That's not only bad directing, that's shoddy behaviour, that I am not in any way proud of. It's arrogant and disrespectful."

Wow.

But that's not all! The acclaimed director also went on to applaud Keira's craft, adding:

Filmmakers Defend Keira Knightley After Begin Again Director Blasted Her For Bad Acting!

Keira Knightley is an utterly spectacular talent, despite what one director has to say!

Last week, the actress was put on blast by John Carney, who directed the actress in his 2013 romance Begin Again.

During press for his new movie, the Irish filmmaker claimed that Knightley was a "supermodel" who didn't have the "honesty and self analysis" he thinks is required to be a legit film actor.

But Carney's opinions about Keira seem to be the vast minority, because other directors who worked with the actress are coming out of the woodwork to defend the 31-year-old!

Filmmakers Mark Romanek, Lynn Shelton, Lorene Scafaria, and Massy Tadjedin all took to Twitter to defend the actress and condemn Carney's "untrue" remarks.

Romanek, who directed Knightley in Never Let Me Go, wrote:

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:

May The Fourth Be With You — And With These 10 Stars You Had No Idea Appeared In The Star Wars Universe!

Hayden Christensen has said Star Wars basically ruined his career. Natalie Portman tries not to talk about it.

One celeb that doesn't have that problem?? Keira Knightley!

Keira was given the role Queen Amidala's decoy, Sabe, in Episode I: The Phantom Menace thanks to their eerily similar looks — but because she was so heavily made up, no one even remembers she was in the film!

And she isn't the only one people don't realize!

So for Star Wars Day, we figured we'd round up some famous faces — and voices — who almost went unnoticed…

At least, that's what critics are saying after Shanghai sculptor Chen Dapeng revealed his porcelain sculpture!

The bust of Her Royal Highness was unveiled at the Winter Art and Antiques Fair in London on Monday as part of this year's launch of a Year of Cultural Exchange between the U.K. and China!
