Keira Knightley Defended By Two Former Directors Following John Carney's Comments

Keira Knightley is receiving support from two former directors after her Begin Again director John Carney criticized her acting and behavior on set.

The director said that “Keira has an entourage that follow her everywhere so it’s very hard to get any real work done. And as much as I tried to make it work I think that she didn’t quite come out as a guitar-playing singer-songwriter. I learned that I’ll never make a film with supermodels again.”

Mark Romanek, the director of 2010′s Never Let Me Go, and Lorene Scafaria, the writer/director of 2012′s Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, both tweeted in support of Keira.

“My experience with #keiraknightley was utterly spectacular on every level. I have no clue what this guy is talking about. #arrogantshithead,” Mark tweeted.

“I agree with Mark. Keira was a joy to work w/. Present & easy & really, really good at her job. Just lovely,” Lorene said.

    Thanks for posting. Love Massy’s comments. Keira never struck me as the type of actress that travels with a large entourage. For all her fame and fortune, she seems really down to earth.

    Feel awful for Keira. That director is a bitter asshole.

    Keira rocks. She is absolutely unpretentious. This dude is unfairly taking out all his frustions on her. Two-time oscar nominated girl who doesnt carry on like she was ever given any accolades. Who could possibly dislike Keira?

    She’s not one of my favorite actresses but I have liked some of the movies that she’s in, the ones I didn’t like is because of the movie, not her. She probably wasn’t right for the role or maybe the film didn’t do well so he’s taking it out on her instead of taking responsibility for it. And this entourage? Was it people helping with her singing? If so that doesn’t qualify as an entourage.
