So, she warned Fassbender she would take revenge if one of the fake slaps actually struck her, reports “Before we shot the spanking scenes, I told him, ‘If you touch me I will kill you’ and he did remind me that I was tied to a bed at the time and really I shouldn’t be making any threats,” said Knightley.
