Wellington: While shooting for ‘Pride and Prejudice’ in 2005, Keira Knightley had been advised to ‘shut up and stop pouting’.

The actress portrayed Elizabeth Bennet in the movie, based on the Jane Austen novel, which was directed by Joe Wright.

Wright was well aware how he wanted Knightley to play the character, and at times appeared to be tough on her.

“Shut your mouth and stop doing the pout!`` he was yelling at me,” quoted Knightley as telling the French edition of Grazia.
