Director Apologises For Slamming Keira Knightley

in Entertainment/Latest

During a recent interview the ‘Sing Street’ director John Carney launched an attack on Keira Knightley, who starred in his 2013 movie ‘Begin Again’, blaming her for the movie’s shortcomings but after a massive backlash he took to Twitter to admit he was “petty, mean and hurtful”.

In a post he captioned: “From a director who feels like a complete idiot,” John wrote: “Recently, in a phone interview, the conversation turned to a discussion about a past film, Begin Again, starring Kiera Knightley. 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 behavior, that I am not in any way proud of. It’s arrogant and disrespectful. Keira was nothing but professional and dedicated during that film and she contributed hugely to its success. I wrote to Keira personally to apologies, but I wanted to publicly and unreservedly apologies to her fans and friends and anyone else I have offended. It’s not something that I could ever justify and will never repeat.”

John blasted two-time Oscar nominee Keira’s acting skills in his recent interview and described his new movie as “a small personal movie with no Keira Knightleys in it”.
