Begin Again director John Carney has apologised for slamming actor Keira Knightley in a recent interview in which he negatively compared her to “a supermodel.”

Carney is the Irish filmmaker of the Oscar-winning Once. He posted a statement Wednesday on Twitter from “a director who feels like a complete idiot.” He calls his comments on Knightley “mean and hurtful.”
