Knightley drank vodka before filming spanking scenes

Washington: Keira Knightley has revealed that she and her co-star Michael Fassbender downed vodka shots before shooting intimate spanking scenes for their latest film ‘A Dangerous Method’.

The pair star as Sabina Spielrein and her therapist Carl Jung in the David Cronenberg movie.

Knightley, 26, admitted that they got through the more uncomfortable scenes, which include Michael spanking her by turning to alcohol.

“We only had one or two shots maximum,” a website has quoted the actress as telling a magazine.

“It was a vodka shot to calm our nerves and away you go really. Then we had champagne. We drank quite a lot of champagne actually. You can count on Michael to buy a bottle of champagne when one is required. The vodka and champagne is a good combination,” she added.
