Keira Knightley Elle

February 5, 2010

I love Keira Knightley’s Elle cover. She looks absolutely stunning and gives quite a candid interview. She really doesn’t hold back and it makes next month’s issue a must read. Check out her fabulous cover picture along with video and a bit from the interview here.

I have to admit, the first time I saw Keira Knightley was in Star Wars where she played Sabe, and I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between her and Natalie Portman. It was even rumored that during filming, their mothers couldn’t tell them apart. I wrote her off as a knock off and moved along.

Then Pirates of the Caribbean came along, and she really held her own along side super stars such as Johnny Deep and Orlando Bloom. Although I still can’t get over their eerie resemblance, I have grown to appreciate them both as actresses. Popsugar has a great comparison of the two ladies here, you should definitely check it out.

It seems that Keira does have haters though, because that was one of the main topics of her interview. Here is a bit from her Elle interview.

On her character in The Misanthrope: “Jennifer’s kind of a crazy mix of being a complete bitch—confident and terrifying—yet she’s incredibly young and is probably being exploited way more than she actually realizes.”

On criticism of her acting skills: “Oh, they still say that! Every time I do an interview with the English press, one of their questions is, ‘How do you feel knowing that everyone thinks you’re a shit actress?’ ”

On surrounding herself by people who tell her the unvarnished truth: “You have to be selective about the people whose advice and opinions you take. I know [my parents] would never tell me I was shit because they were trying to hurt me. It would always come from a very sincere place.”

On her upcoming film Last Night: “When we were making it, the arguments on set were just amazing about whether mental infidelity is better or worse than physical infidelity. There was a huge gender divide on the question. Every single woman said that mental infidelity is 10 times worse than [an emotionless assignation]. And most men I spoke with said that it’s the physical act that would be the ultimate betrayal.”

So readers, leave your thoughts in the comment section below and be sure to pick up the next issue of the magazine, Kiera Knightley Elle!
