Washington, Feb 12 : English actress Keira Knightley is said to have shocked her Atonement co-star James McAvoy by sending him obscene text messages. The reason that the Scottish actor was at the receiving end of the profanities was because Knightley was overwhelmed to learn of the movie's BAFTA nominations last month (Jan08), which amounted to 14 in total.
"We did text other but I was quite rude to him.... but I meant it in a loving way," Contactmusic reported her as having told British radio station Heart.
"I can't remember what exactly I wrote but it involved a lot of swear words I think," she added.
Even though the movie got 14 nominations including Best Picture, it was very surprising that it managed to get only two awards at Sunday (10Feb08) night's ceremony.
