    Keira made her first appearance of the year last night at the Paris premiere of Colette, held at the Cinéma Gaumont Champs-Élysées. For our European visitors, the film debuts across the UK, Ireland, France, and Belgium this week and next. If you decide to check in out in theaters, we hope you enjoy!

    Appearing on ‘The Graham Norton Show’

    For all UK fans, Keira will appear on the famous red couch for a special New Year’s Eve edition of The Graham Norton Show on Monday. A few clips from the show have already been released, and Keira gets to show off her musical teeth once again (a talent she most recently displayed during a Jonathan Ross interview in 2012). Joining her on the show are Nicholas Hoult, Olivia Coleman, Guy Pearce, Catherine Tate and Rita Ora. I’ve added some photos from the appearance to the gallery. Enjoy!

    The Sunday Times Style Photoshoot

    I’ve updated the gallery with a new photoshoot of Keira, who is featured on the cover of this weekend’s Sunday Times Style – which is available for those of you in the UK. I’ll work on tracking down the accompanying interview very soon. Enjoy.

    ‘A Life in Pictures’ BAFTA Event

    After an OBE honoring last week at the Buckingham Palace ceremony, Keira was again on the receiving end of a much deserved tribute earlier this week as part of BAFTA’s Life in Pictures, which offered a retrospective of her career so far. Photos from the event have been uploaded to the gallery, and I’m sure the interview will become available to watch very soon, too. Enjoy!


    Investiture Ceremony at Buckingham Palace

    At a ceremony held at Buckingham Palace yesterday, Keira received her OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) – for her services to charity and drama. Needless to say, this is a huge honor for Keira and we couldn’t be happier for her!

    Harpers Bazaar UK Scans

    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 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.
