Knightley, 26, said they got through the most uncomfortable scenes by turning to alcohol, Femalefirst reported. "We only had one or two shots maximum. 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 said. She also said that she now only chooses roles that challenge her and she loves to be frightened by her movies.

"I think all the work I have done over the past five years has looked for the thing that really frightens meĀ -- the thing that I really don't know how to do. I think it is for selfish reasons."
