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:

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:

no title

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

So unprofessional!!

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:

Adam Levine Wasn't Paid A Single Dime For His Role In Begin Again And He's Totally Okay With It!

Filed under: Film FlickersAdam Levine

adam levine begin again no money not paid

This is totally a non-douchey move!

Adam Levine definitely has the means to live the rest of his life without working, especially when you factor in all the moolah he's making from The Voice and his musical endeavors!

Which is why you shouldn't be surprised to hear he starred in his latest movie with Keira Knightley for no pay at all!

His reason why for not accepting money is pretty inspiring. Adam said:

Keira Knightley Gives Valentino Two Chances In NYC, But Which Look Flattered Her More?? YOU Decide!

Keira Knightley dons Valentino twice in one day in NYC!

Inneresting!!

Keira Knightley has been shying from the spotlight lately, but now with a new movie to promote, she’s finally stepping back into it!

And instead of her usual Chanel garb, she was spotted sporting Valentino TWICE in one day!

The actress kicked off her Wednesday with a visit to the Daily Show with Jon Stewart in a white doily-esque (but really eyelet) midi dress.

Keira wore the simple number with metallic pumps and cat eye sunnies.

Though it really seemed she was saving the glamour for later that night, when she hit the red carpet of the Begin Again NYC premiere in a stunning midnight blue gown.

With its sheer tulle overlay featuring a bird print on top, the eccentric piece was an unexpected choice for the starlet!

Between the two, which do U think flattered her more???
