    Courtesy of my lovely friend Lora, I’ve added scans of Keira’s cover feature for the December issue of Harpers Bazaar UK to the gallery. For me, this is one of her best shoots in recent years – and I’m sure it will be used for a layout at some point in the future. Enjoy!

    Keira Knightley: Movies That Made Me

    If you haven’t already, be sure to check out this great interview with Keira for BBC Radio 1’s Movies That Made Me segment. The full episode is available in certain regions by clicking here.

    Version 4.0 & Site Content Launch

    At long last, I’m able to welcome back our dedicated visitors to Keira Knightley Fan. As per my posts a couple months back, I’ve been working on the site in my spare time, focusing on a couple of different things. One change you will have noticed is that our gallery is now found at a new url. The decision to rebuild this part of the site was a process that I wasn’t completely sold on at first. The established one has over 6million views, which is an amazing feat for a fansite–but I had my own collection of Keira photos that I’d amassed throughout the years and had no idea how to go about replacing so many images for additional photos, sorting duplicates, replacing for better quality etc. without completely losing my mind. The decision was finally made to create a new gallery, which is still a long way from complete, but will eventually feature lots of rare and exclusive images, as well as Blu-ray quality screen captures from each of Keira’s films that is available on the format (I figured it was time to put my collection to good use!). There’s already quite a few images that were not available in the previous gallery, so I hope you’ll enjoy the additions.

    I have also given some attention to the site’s content pages. My aim with any fansite is to make them as extensive and resourceful as possible, creating an online database for Keira and her career, of sorts. There’s still a long way to go (Keira is a busy lady with an extensive career!), but I hope you’ll enjoy browsing what is available so far. Finally, and most noticeably, we have some new designs for the main site and gallery. The shoot featured is a much older one, but a personal favorite that I feel would coincide perfectly with the fall season. I must thank my dear friend Neide for her amazing coding work, and Nicole for creating the beautiful header. If you should come across any errors whilst browsing the site, please do let me know – either via our contact page or through Twitter, I’d be very grateful!

    Keira Knightley on family, feminism and freedom

    Keira has been named as one of the Women of the Year by Harpers Bazaar UK, and features as one of the cover stars for the December issue of the magazine (two years after her last cover for the publication). As well as a stunning new photoshoot, there’s an interview with Keira where she discusses motherhood, feminism, and her role in Colette. The magazine is available on newsstands now.

    HARPERS BAZAAR UK – You can see the panic in Keira Knightley’s eyes. This morning she has been trying to work out where to send her three-year-old daughter, Edie, to school next year, the kind of conundrum that to non-parents seems laughable and to parents becomes a sanity-devouring subject that has no happy ending.

    There’s the local school, which she likes but her child might not get into, or the variety of private schools she’s not sure about, or home-schooling, which she would definitely never do. “And I’ve literally just gone crazy looking at every single one in London!” she says, laughing in the slightly possessed way of the deranged.

    Knightley is sitting in an Islington café, not far from where she lives with her daughter and her musician husband, James Righton. The last time we met, five years ago, she was post-marriage, pre-baby. Back then, she’d just been in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, a ‘piece of popcorn’ as she called it, and she was sweary and ferocious and funny. This time, she’s just put in a powerhouse performance in the title role in Colette and she’s still sweary and ferocious and funny, but slightly unravelled by three long years of destroyed nights.

    Life has changed. The films are a little different, and she’s had approximately 100 per cent less sleep. It got to the point, she says, “where it’s like, “Oh, nobody is sleeping in this house”, and you think, “Do we all hate each other, or are we actually completely sleep-deprived?””

    While pregnant, she took a year off work. Then she had her daughter and with a four-month-old in tow, the family moved to New York so that Knightley could perform the title role in Thérèse Raquin on Broadway. “I actually don’t know how we did that,” she says, still looking bemused by the decision. “If we have another one I wouldn’t say I’d do that again. It was quite mad.” She remembers little of the time – the eight three-hour shows a week while breastfeeding an infant blurring into a haze. It was only possible at all by hiring a maternity nurse at night, who Knightley paid double what she was earning in the show so that she could rest in order to play the psychotic and murderous Thérèse again the next day. At least, she says, the storm of new-mother hormones and overspilling emotions proved helpful for the role.

    Keira Knightley Heads Cast of Pathe’s ‘Misbehaviour’

    More great news, Keira fans!

    VARIETY – Keira Knightley is set to star in Miss World pageant comedy drama “Misbehaviour” for Pathé. Pathé will present the film, which is directed by BAFTA-winner Philippa Lowthorpe, to buyers at the upcoming American Film Market.

    “Misbehaviour” is based on the true events of the 1970 Miss World pageant in London, when a global audience witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head. The most-watched television show in the world at the time, with more than 100 million viewers, the 1970 Miss World pageant saw the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieve overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast, hosted by Bob Hope, claiming that such beauty competitions demeaned women. When the show resumed, the result caused further uproar when Miss Grenada became the first black woman to be crowned Miss World, beating the favorite. Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Jessie Buckley co-star in the film.

    The movie is produced by Suzanne Mackie for Left Bank Pictures and written by Rebecca Frayn with revisions by Gaby Chiappe. Andy Harries and Frayn serve as executive producers for Left Bank alongside Cameron McCracken and Jenny Borgars for Pathé.

    It marks Lowthorpe’s sophomore feature after 2016’s “Swallows and Amazons.” The director is one of only two women to have won a BAFTA TV Award for direction, having won twice: in 2013 with “Call the Midwife” and earlier this year with miniseries “Three Girls.”

    Knightley, a two-time Oscar nominee for 2005’s “Pride & Prejudice” and 2014’s “The Imitation Game,” was most recently seen in Wash Westmoreland’s biopic “Colette,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. She will next be seen in Disney’s “The Nutcrackers and the Four Realms,” which opens in the U.S. on Nov. 2. She has also completed James Kent’s “The Aftermath,” due to release in spring 2019, and Gavin Hood’s whistleblower drama “Official Secrets,” which is in post-production.

    Pathé is set to distribute “Misbehaviour” in the U.K., France and Switzerland as well as handling sales on the film for the rest of the world.

    This year’s AFM runs Oct. 31 to Nov. 7.
