Quoting Keira
"All through my life what I've loved doing is watching movies. I love the escapism of film, I love stories. So it is incredible to be able to be in them as much as I am, to see them from the first stitch in a costume to the end product."
‘Misbehaviour’ Interviews with HeyUGuys

Keira Knightley on #MeToo, motherhood and Misbehaviour

FINANCIAL TIMES – Keira Knightley is a hypocrite. And so are you. “We’re all hypocrites,” she says. “We’re human beings. Being a human being is being a hypocrite.”

People, with all their messy contradictions, rarely live up to their virtuous ideals. That is how Knightley squares a successful career in an industry that projects impossible beauty standards — while also applauding the feminist protests at the 1970 Miss World competition, the subject of her new film, Misbehaviour.

Knightley plays Sally Alexander, the real-life activist who, together with fellow members of the new Women’s Liberation Movement, interrupted the pageant with ink-squirting toy guns, football rattles and flour bombs. Their actions brought the campaign against the objectification of women to a television audience of 100 million.

For Knightley, exploring conflicting interests — such as the challenge of balancing her own feminist principles with the demands of her job — was part of the film’s attraction. “That’s why I wanted to do it!” she says, with such force you can almost see the exclamation marks project from her mouth.

“I came into this completely on the side of the women’s libbers. Totally. Completely. Yes, 100 per cent, this is disgusting. And yet, I am somebody that makes my living, most of my money, from being a model [in campaigns for Chanel and others] and from doing red carpets.”

On the day we meet in a central London hotel, she is impeccably groomed in a Loewe black jacket, with smoky eye make-up and waved hair. There have been moments on the red carpet, she says, when she felt she was in “a dog show” with “f**king creepy cameras”.

Yet compromised principles are no excuse for inertia. “You’re going to find very few people like Greta Thunberg. [But] by going, ‘Oh God, therefore I can’t say anything’, then nothing is going to happen,” she says. “Nothing’s going to change in any direction whatsoever.”

Knightley may be best known for playing the romantic heroine in a slew of period dramas — from 2005’s Pride & Prejudice (which earned her an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination), to Atonement in 2007 (for which she was shortlisted for a Bafta and Golden Globe) and Anna Karenina in 2012. But it would be a mistake to pigeonhole her. She has increasingly embraced more complicated, unconventional roles.

Keira Covers PORTER

After last year’s hiatus following the birth of Delilah, Keira is now back in the spotlight for the promotion of Misbehaviour, gracing the cover of the March issue of PORTER. How gorgeous does she look? In addition to the new photoshoot, there’s an accompanying interview, which I have attached below. Enjoy!


PORTER – “What are you meant to aim for as a woman?” asks Keira Knightley, throwing up her hands imploringly. Rhetorical, yes, but the question underpins much of what we are here – in an east London café, the kind where the lighting is atmospheric enough that you might not spot a two-time Oscar nominee sitting in the corner – to discuss. Whether it’s the feminist narrative of her latest movie, the importance of championing female storytellers or raising two daughters, women are at the forefront of today’s conversation.

Growing up in the suburbs of south-west London with her actor father, playwright mother and older brother, equality was the norm for Knightley at home. “A lot of the time, my mum was earning more than my dad and that was never an issue,” she shrugs. “I mean, sometimes he earned more, sometimes she earned more. I was not raised to think that was anything other than normal.”

The 34-year-old actor – whose career took off stratospherically in her teenage years – found it a shock, then, “coming into the world where there are actually articles saying how much [my partner] earned and how much I earned, because it’s newsworthy that a woman could possibly earn more.”

Knightley married musician James Righton in 2013, and the couple welcomed their first daughter, Edie, in 2015, then Delilah was born last September. Still technically on maternity leave, she is delighted to note the absence of baby sick on her sweater today.

Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Roman Griffin Davis Join ‘Silent Night’

DEADLINE – Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey) and Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders) are joining Keira Knightley and JoJo Rabbit star Roman Griffin Davis in the Christmas-themed movie Silent Night. Production gets underway February 17.

Elements of the project were first revealed earlier today. This is the whole story.

Marv Films’ Matthew Vaughn (Rocketman) will finance and produce the project alongside Trudie Styler (American Honey) and Celine Rattray (The Kids Are All Right) of Maven Pictures.

Camille Griffin will make her directorial feature film debut from her own original screenplay. Griffin, the mother of Golden Globe-nominated JoJo Rabbit breakout Griffin Davis, has written and directed five shorts before this. She started her career working in the camera department alongside cinematographers including Darius Khondji and Ben Davis.

While Silent Night’s plot details are being kept largely under wraps, the festive comedy will focus on an extended family having a Christmas dinner in a country setting.

Matthew Vaughn said, “Camille’s script is haunting and original – I was immediately captivated when I read it. I am very excited to be supporting her directorial debut and I can’t wait to make this film alongside Celine and Trudie.”

Added Styler: “Celine and I are thrilled to continue Maven’s mission of greater representation for women in film. Our writer-director Camille is a talented, distinctive new voice. We are excited to be collaborating with Matthew on this film, and also the brilliant Keira and Roman.”

Knightley and Goode previously starred together in movies Official Secrets and The Imitation Game. Goode will next be seen in Vaughn’s The King’s Man. Two-time Oscar nominee Knightley has 20th Century’s Misbehaviour upcoming. Wallis’ projects in post-production include the lead role in James Wan’s Malignant and The Silencing with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Knightley is repped by United Agents, CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern, Griffin Davis by Independent Talent Group and ICM Partners, Goode by CAA and Dalzell and Beresford, and Wallis by United Agents, UTA and Untitled Entertainment.

‘Seeking a Friend…’ Screen Captures

Continuing with the theme of screen capturing Keira’s missing roles from our new gallery, I’ve uploaded Blu-ray quality caps of her performance in Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. To me, this is one of her most underrated projects – in terms of both her performance and the movie itself. Her chemistry with Steve Carell is great, and it really showcases her comedic ability (as well as some deeper, more dramatic moments, too).



‘The Aftermath’ Screen Captures

I’ve updated the gallery with Blu-ray captures from one of Keira’s most recent roles in The Aftermath-which unfortunately only received a limited US release and some negative reviews from critics. Maybe I’m slightly biased, but I really enjoyed this one. It is not without flaws, but the performances are strong, the story is original and it’s also a beautiful film to watch. With that being said, enjoy these gorgeous captures of Keira!
