Keira Knightley gave an interview to the British magazine “Britain’s Stylist”. What did she say?
“Everyone knew about it. Many actresses reported harassment 10 or 15 years ago, but journalists did not touch the subject,” said Keira Knightley.
She then stated that the climate of the time made those reporting the crime, not those responsible for it, feel like they were on the wrong side.
“We were told, ‘It’s okay, we’ll take care of it’, but then it turned out that it was not good. Thanks to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, there was an opportunity to solve these problems,” says the twice-nominated actress.
The actress also confessed that at the beginning of her career she had a nervous breakdown.
Knightley admitted that after her twentieth birthday she had suffered a slump due to the pressure of her responsibilities. That is why he now avoids appearing in blockbusters for hundreds of millions of dollars.
“My life would be a torment if I played in more expensive blockbusters. The obligations associated with them are too much for me. I do not want such a life” – confessed the star of “Pirates of the Caribbean”.
The actress, who usually avoids discussing her private matters in the media, hopes that her statements will be helpful to someone.
“If there is a young person out there who feels he has enough, it might help to know that even screen people sometimes feel broken and brought down to the ground floor,” concluded Knightley.
Keira Knightley at the age of 8 appeared in one of the episodes of the series “Screen One”. At the age of ten, she made her film debut in “Innocent Lies”. When she was 15 years old and had seven roles in her account (including being Amidala’s maid in the first installment of “Star Wars”), she dropped out of school.
