How did Keira Knightley land the lead role in the upcoming remake of 'My Fair Lady?'
She got drunk at the audition.
The starlet tells Glamour UK that to calm her nerves before belting out a tune, she reached for the bottle.
'I told producer Cameron Mackintosh that would be the only way I could sing in front of everyone. The problem with doing it is that alcohol dehydrates you, which isn't very helpful for singing,' said Knightley. 'I probably did slur my words. I can't remember.'
