British actress Keira Knightley was horrified after filming her sexy lapdance in Domino because the street gang her character was trying to disarm was made up of real-life thugs.

According to, Knightley had no idea she was gyrating in front of real-life criminals, which included the violent gangster Eddie Hernandez. She said: "All of them acted like gentlemen. But it was bl**dy frightening afterwards."

However, director Tony Scott was convinced that most actors would be too good looking to play the parts.

He said: "You can't find faces like that in Hollywood."
