Keira Knightley, who stars in Joe Wright's upcoming release 'Anna Karenina', shocked the director when she turned up for a meeting looking like a 'street urchin'.

Wright was totally taken aback by the star’s appearance as he thought she’d be a 'princess'. Although the duo’s first meeting didn’t go well as they were both tired, they gelled up well during their second get together.

"I think it was the fact that neither of us was sleep-deprived. He says it was because he was expecting me to arrive as some Hollywood princess but then I turned up in very ripped jeans looking like a street urchin," quoted the actress as saying.

"I do remember very clearly at the end of our meeting him shouting down the road at me, ''Keira, pull your trousers up," and me turning around and just shouting, ''F**k off!’ I think we knew we were going to be fine,” she added.
