You'll Never Believe Who DOESN'T Like Keira Knightley!

Director John Carney has criticised his former leading lady Keira Knightley.

The Irish filmmaker worked with her on the 2013 film 'Begin Again' and claimed he was 'disenchanted' with his experience of 'certain movie stars' in it.

In an interview with the Independent, Carney went on to praise the other stars of the movie, Mark Ruffalo and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine.

He said ''Mark Ruffalo is a fantastic actor and Adam Levine is a joy to work with and actually quite unpretentious and not a bit scared of exposing himself on camera and exploring who he is as an individual.

‘I think that 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.’

However, he wasn't so flattering about Keira.

He said ''Keira’s thing is to hide who you are and I don’t think you can be an actor and do that. And working with the kids on this film and real instruments there was no hiding going on.

‘It really was a bit of a journey of self-discovery for the actors in Sing Street and that appeals to me.’

In the film, Keira plays a songwriter who bonds with a record label executive (Ruffalo) after she's dumped by her successful musician boyfriend (Levine).

He finished his interview by saying ''I don't want to work with supermodels again'.
