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:

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:
