London: Keira Knightley faced one of the toughest challenges of her career in new film— having to look unattractive.

The 25-year-old British actress plays a sickly plain Jane in new flick ‘Never Let Me Go’, which co-stars Carey Mulligan.

But director Mark Romanek said that the role was tricky for Keira.

“It was difficult,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“She was eager and happy to do it because the role called for it. But even at her worst, Keira still looks astonishing,” he admitted.
