Vodka shots helped Keira through sex scenes

Vodka shots helped Keira through sex scenesKeira Knightley has admitted that she necked vodka shots to get through explicit sex scenes in her upcoming movie 'A Dangerous Method' in which she plays an erotically charged mental patient.

The 26-year-old actress, who has never faced problems getting her kit off for films, needed a little courage when it came to playing a sex-obsessed seductress.

Some of the sex scenes in the movie were so explicit that the 'Princess of Thieves' star initially turned down the role and then had to swig vodka to get through them.

Knightley plays a masochist who has an affair with her psychoanalyst Dr Carl Jung, played by Michael Fassbender, and at one point she is tied to a bed, topless and spanked.

"We were both very nervous about those scenes because they're not nice," the Mirror quoted her as saying.

"When we shot them I said to Michael, 'If you touch me I'm going to kill you.

"He said, 'Keira, you're tied to the bed at the moment. I don't think you're in any position to say that.

"I said, 'Yeah, you're right.

"He's absolutely wonderful - we had a couple of shots of vodka before doing the scene and a couple of glasses of champagne afterwards. A lot of people say acting is like therapy but I don't go for that. It is for some people, but not me.

"When you're playing something so dark you want to have a really nice time afterwards otherwise it's far too depressing.

"The actual filming work was very focused and very creative, but at the end of the day we watched football - the World Cup was on - and drank beer," she added.
