Keira Knightley always looks stunning, whether she wears classy and elegant outfits, more laid-back, casual ensembles with jeans and cardigans or a glamorous evening dress with sexy high heels. Her natural divine beauty and flawless, radiant skin have always been the envy of many girls. This time the beautiful 26-year-old actress covers the “Flaunt” magazine for the spring 2011 fashion issue, looking as always gorgeous in different outfits. In the interview, the shining actress talks about her great love for theatres, independent films, jealousy, “Last Night”, and her future plans.
She poses in heaven-like dresses and looks fantastic in all of them. The photos for the magazine were lensed by AbneyPark Cemetery. She talked about “Last Night”, her future plans and why she loves theatre with the “Flaunt”, saying: “I suppose I like the romance of it, because you never see the same play twice. There’s something extraordinary about something that’s lost—that you will only ever see it for that night and that night only. You’ll never see it again, and it’s not recorded, and so it’s kind of magic.”
In fact, Keira is from a theatrical family. Her mother is actress turned playwright Sharman Macdonald and her father is actor Will Knightley.
About her return to “The Children’s Hour” melodrama, she stated: “It’s so alive. It’s your job every single night to make sure that it’s working. And no one can come in and make sure that it does. That’s interesting because it means you’re incredibly focused for two and a half hours, and if something goes wrong, you have to find a way to get out of it. That can be quite difficult in front of 800 people, so it’s quite exciting.”
As for “Last Night”, where Knightley, Sam Worthington, Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet start, Keira said: “What I loved about Last Night was that if you’re an adult. You recognize at least one of these situations, if not all four of them. And what I loved about the piece as a whole is it didn’t impose its morality, its judgment on any of the people. It kind of requires you the audience to make up your own mind, to put your own life into the piece. I think that that’s actually quite rare with film, as you’re told exactly what to think about everyone that’s in it. This is nice because it’s kind of free and open. It will change depending on what sort of life experience you’ve had and where your morality lies.”
“Last Night” is a movie, which tells a story about a married couple that faces a temptation one night. When Keira was asked if she thought men and women exercise jealousy in various ways, she said: “No, I don’t. I think that’s why I was really excited about doing a film like Last Night. I mean, my god, the stories you get from everybody. The whole crew, everyone, was trying to decide who was in the right and who was in the wrong. And people were like, ‘This happened to me,’ or, ‘My wife did this or my wife did that,’ and actually, what you find out is that we’re all pretty much the same.”
Keira also admitted that she was fond of unexpected things: “I don’t like the safe options. I like things that have a fifty-fifty chance of me falling on my face. I like the magic when it actually comes together and people enjoy it, but the magic is only there because of the distinct possibility of failure. I find that romantic in a funny kind of way. It’s very unstable at the moment. Things are falling through, and coming back up, and to tell you the truth, I think with independent film, that’s always been the case. It’s a balancing act at the best of times, but it’s definitely a balancing act now. It’s sticking to things, and seeing what miracle happens, and where the money actually holds. It’s the personal reward, because I love making them, but again, selfishly, because I love watching independent films.”
“That’s why I got into the film industry. They’re the ones I love going to see, and I think my gang of friends are exactly the same. And [I also love making indie films] for the slightly hair-raising stake that you never know if the money’s going to hold—there’s always time constraints, and it’s difficult to get the finance, and that’s actually a quite exciting part of the process. They’re not always going to work. That’s the nature of the beast,” Keira told the “Flaunt”.
About her future plans Keira said: “Then hopefully, at the end of the year, I’m going to do a film with Joe Wright, who I did Pride and Prejudice and Atonement with, but given the financial climate, nothing is ever for certain, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.”
