    Default Keira Knightley: ‘I don’t think you can say that beauty is a curse’

    She doesn’t want her future daughter to be an actress: “I should imagine that if she wanted to act, I wouldn’t have a choice but, no, I certainly wouldn’t recommend it. It can be completely heartbreaking for most people who do it, because the amount of rejection is enormous. And it doesn’t matter what kind of person you are, it’s impossible for that not to take a toll. Even if you’re successful, you still have to go through a s—load of rejection. So I would say to my daughter: ‘Be a doctor or a lawyer – something stable and useful.’”

    On her good looks:
    “I don’t think you can say that they’re a curse. It would be stupid of me to say that my looks haven’t played a part in my career, because obviously they have. And obviously they have got be contracts with Chanel, but there have been as many, if not more, parts that I haven’t got because of the way I look. So I suppose it balances out.”

    Being famous when she was younger:
    “I reached my peak of grown-up behaviour at 20 and 21, and it’s been downhill since then. I was terribly sensible as a teenager but I’ve got far less so as I’ve grown up, which has been a huge relief for everyone – including my parents. I’m not actually worried about turning 30. Because, honestly, my early 20s were not much fun. Then, after 25, things just got better and better. Maybe you stop caring as much about where you should be going and what other people think.”

    Her wedding to James Righton:
    “It was a bloody good day and a lot of fun. And yes, being married feels pretty good. You only get to choose one member of your family and I made a good choice. So well done, me!”

    Her favorite style icons are Bjork & Helena Bonham Carter:
    “I always think that all the people on those ‘red cross’ lists are the best dressed. That swan dress was my all-time favourite. I’m always telling my stylist, ‘Don’t make me too proper!’ If it’s perfect, I’m not interested.”

    Don’t call her “babe”:
    “I don’t really notice ‘love’ or ‘darling’, but ‘babe’ I do find really tricky.”

    She sounds very likable to me. I think she's right about the 20's and 30's. Somewhere around 25, I started trying to live for me. At 30, I barely gave a fuck about what others thought

    Glad to see she recognizes her beauty and doesn't sound like an asshole about it.

    She's one of those actresses I feel I should dislike yet everything I read or hear about her she comes across as very cute and engaging and down to earth.

    I like her too. I think she'd be fun to hang with and I love that you can see her wearing the same clothes more than once.

    I've never really had an opinion on her but this interview made me love her. She sounds so sweet and endearing and self-aware. She doesn't sound like a try-hard, pretentious twat like a lot of other young actresses.

    Unfortunately I think she's one of those hateful bitches who naturally run skinny. Her father and brother are both tall and slim builds too.

    I was at our local college with someone like that. Bitch used to eat a huge full cooked breakfast every morning before classes and then another huge meal at lunch. If she didn't eat lots every day then the weight started dropping off her pretty quickly and she was already super thin. I wanted to stab her with a fork. One of my exes was also similarly blessed. Ate enough for three people every day and stayed rail thin.

    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me. Hunter S Thompson
