Keira Knightley's performance in film Begin Again criticised by director John Carney

- Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine(!) are “fantastic actors”
- on Keira:
“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 .
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.”


“I learned that I’ll never make a film with supermodels again”
(?)

- on his new movie Sing Street:
“It’s fantastic. I’m very surprised, it’s a small personal movie with no Keira Knightley’s in it. It’s really rewarding.”

update: even more Keira hate in this interview
