Sam Worthington: Keira hated me

Sam Worthington admitted he behaved like 'a jerk' while filming Last Night

Sam Worthington has revealed that Keira Knightley "hated" him - after he took method acting a little too far on the set of their film.

The Avatar star, 35, said he struggled to get into the role of a complacent husband, opposite Keira as his wife, in the recent movie Last Night.

He told Metro: "I thought if I treat her with complacency - like the character in the movie - that might help. So in the second week, I became complacent.

"Actually, I was a bit of a jerk. I didn't turn up to rehearsals. Why? I couldn't be bothered. And I picked fights with the director.

"In my head, I thought my character should be a bit of a jerk. Keira started to hate me. But to me that meant things were going well: We nailed our relationship right there."

Sam called his behaviour "stupid", saying: "I'm not very good at turning it on and off. It will take a long time for her to stop seeing me as arrogant."

The Australian actor currently stars as an Israeli Mossad agent opposite Dame Helen Mirren in The Debt.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
