Keira Knightley’s talent most certainly makes her a star hard to work with and this is exactly what happed with Adam Levine who got pretty nervous about making his feature film acting debut in Begin Again with the actress but of course he had to try and he did. The lead singer of Maroon 5 told PEOPLE that "I was worried, but I had to pretend like I wasn't." he confessed having to worry a lot about the film on Saturday while he was at the movie's premiere, which closed the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
"So I was just playing the role of an actor knowing what he was doing. You know when you see a bear you have to pretend you are bigger than the bear in order to keep your life? That's kind of what it was like. I kept thinking, 'I'm an actor. For this next two weeks, I am an actor.' I crossed my fingers and hoped it turned out fine."
Regardless of how nervous he was becoming, Keira Knightley thinks high of him and clearly said that "He's a born entertainer. He's an absolute natural actor. The thing about musicians is that they are very confident. I can't imagine many of them asking for advice." Singing throughout the film wasn’t an easy task after all. Levine had never been in a feature film before and made his TV acting debut in American Horror Story and Keira Knightley too had to do something which was completely out of her comfort zone; she had to sing throughout the film. "I was pretty terrified," says Knightley (who once sang in The Edge of Love). "I'm not a singer. I think we faked it all right, which is what I was hoping for." Levine had been very supportive throughout and when she revealed her nervousness he simply told her that she would do perfectly fine. "He went, 'You'll be all right,' " she says. "So every time he'd go, 'Oh, no. I'm really terrified. I'm acting for the first time,' I was like, 'You'll be all right.' He was really good – so I was right!"
