The Director was David Cronenberg, who is known for working with Twilight’s Robert Pattinson.
He was casting at the time for his movie “A Dangerous Method.”
“He wanted to see my planned weird sex faces…” Kiera revealed about the audition, which took place over Skype.
“It was horrible on every level, because I’d never met him before,” she recounts.
Knightley, 29, starred in the 2011 movie with Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender.
The movie was about the clash between 20th Century doctors Carl Jung, founder of analytical psychology, and Sigmund Freud, who pioneered psychoanalysis.
Keira played Sabina Spielrein, who was a patient of Jung’s because of her unusual sexual fetishes.

“Right now?” Keira replied.
