Keira Knightley infuriated the director of her latest movie after she needed 17 takes to get one scene right.
The actress - who recently referred to herself as a "moody b*****d" - is filming costume drama 'The Duchess' but couldn't get to grips with one two-line scene.
An on set source said: "Keira was clearly having a very tough day. She was filming a very simple scene, but couldn't get it right. The director finally gave up in despair."
The problematic sequence only required Keira to walk down some stairs and sit with another character. She then had to secretly whisper something to him, finish a drink and leave.
It has been claimed the 'Atonement' actress has upset cast and crew with her diva-like behaviour, which has included her demanding a special chair for her to relax in between takes.
A source said: "Keira has been very difficult. At one point she even made the crew bring her a special chair to sit in."
