Keira Knightley  Keira Knightley (Pirates Of The Caribbean, Bend it like Beckham) was told by a film director that she couldn't act while auditioning for a part in The Jacket. Funny, I could have told her that a long time ago when I saw The Hole.

Although she hadn't read one line of the script, director John Maybury told Keira, "There's been a lot of hype about you, but I don't think you can act. You're completely wrong for this part - I absolutely don't want you."

 

Keira insisted on reading from the script, and Maybury awarded her a starring role in the film, alongside Adrien Brody. Too bad the movie wasn’t any good.
