Keira Knightley delayed filming on her latest movie by getting tangled up in her jewellery.
The Hollywood beauty was left red-faced when production was brought to a halt on period drama 'The Duchess' after she got her bracelet "snagged" in her elaborate ball gown.
An on set source told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "They were filming a dance scene at the Assembly Rooms in Bath when Keira somehow managed to get her bracelet snagged in the vast folds of her dress.
"She got so tangled up the director Saul Dibb had to shout 'cut'. The dancers stopped and the music trailed off as an embarrassed Keira struggled to free herself.
"There was even a danger that the sky-scraper wig she was wearing would topple on the floor."
In 'The Duchess', Keira plays 18th century aristocrat Georgina Cavendish, the Duchess of Devonshire - a descendant of Britain's late Princess Diana.
Earlier this week, it was reported the 'Atonement' actress had been infuriating the film's cast and crew by repeatedly fluffing her lines and behaving like a 'diva'.
A source said: "Keira was filming a very simple two-line scene, but she just couldn't get it right and the director finally gave up in despair.
"She was very moody between takes. She squatted on the floor and stayed there sulking until she was brought a special chair."
'The Duchess' is due to hit cinemas in 2008.
