Keira: I had to beg for role

Speaking at a private screening of the film at the Rex Cinema in London he said: "She proved me wrong because she did a brilliant job."
Co-star Daniel Craig, Jude Law, Rhys Ifans, Lizzie Jagger and Cat Deeley were among the guests attending the screening reports the Evening Standard.
The Jacket is a psychological thriller about a Gulf War veteran who foresees his own death. It opens nationwide on Friday May 13.
Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.
-- Friedrich Nietzsche
