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."
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.
