Keira Knightley finds me arrogant: Sam Worthington

London: `Avatar` star Sam Worthington treated Keira Knightley with complacency on the set of `Last Night` and he thinks that the actress will see his as arrogant for a long time.

The 35-year-old irritated both the director and his co-star with his decision to approach the role - about a husband and wife who have become complacent in their marriage
in a method style, reported Contactmusic.

"For the first week of rehearsals I got to know her, we had a barbecue and stuff, but I was struggling to get into the role. I thought if I treat her with complacency - like the
characters 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. Keira started to hate me," he said.

"It was stupid. 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," Worthington added.

The `Debt` star also said that it is hard to get away from his own thoughts, and he entered a particularly dark place when filming thriller `Texas Killing Fields`.

"I play a guy who`s an angry racist dealing with dead bodies every day. I went off the rails, although I didn`t know it at the time. I listened to a lot of murder tapes. I pinned
pictures of murders up. Believe me, that is horrible to be around. It`s always ringing in your head; it`s in your being.

"You can`t take a holiday from yourself. No matter where you go, you can`t shake what`s going on in your head," he said.
