On telling her future daughter to skip acting: “I’d absolutely tell her not to. I would 150 million trillion per cent be totally discouraging of [her] doing anything like that. I think you need to be, actually, because if the kid is going to do that then they have to do it on their own. And I would say teenage years should be done privately. You should be going out and getting unbelievably drunk, getting into ridiculous situations, making mistakes. That’s what that time of life is about and we should do that privately, one million trillion zillion per cent. Saying that, I don’t regret it – I wouldn’t do my life any differently, but having lived through it…There was a very long time when [interviewers] were all: ‘Well you’re a sh*t actress and you’re anorexic and people hate you’ which, for a teenager or somebody in their early 20s, is a very strange thing.”
On her secret wedding dress: “I wore it for the ceremony we had just for our friends, in a wood, because you have to have flowers on a dress in a wood.”
On first meeting Karl Lagerfeld: “I didn’t know I was meeting him, and I was so jet-lagged I didn’t know what was going on. I was in jeans and had acne – you know the kind where nothing is going to cover it – so I put a hat on. I remember somebody making a [negative] comment about it and I just thought [whispers] ‘I’m wearing a hat because I’ve got acne.’”
The official music video which also features the lyrics of Lost Stars from the “Begin Again” soundtrack was released. Keira is performing the song and the video features new footage of the movie as well. You can watch it below. The soundtrack will be released on July 1st by ALXNDR/222/Polydor/Interscope Records.
The Weinstein Company released the second trailer of “Begin Again“, previously titled “Can A Song Save Your Life?”. You can watch it below. The movie will be released July 2nd in the US.
The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. BEGIN AGAIN is produced and financed by Exclusive Media and produced by Anthony Bregman, Tobin Armbrust and Judd Apatow.
Entertainment Weekly released the first movie clip for “Begin Again”, previously titled “Can A Song Save Your Life”. The movie will close the Tribeca Film Festival in New York tonight so let’s hope Keira will attend the screening!
Fans of Once, the 2007 musical romance that melted hearts and won an Oscar for Best Song, could be singing a new tune when Once director John Carney unveils Begin Again in July. Set in New York City instead of Dublin, the film features similar lonely souls who find each other through music. Mark Ruffalo plays a washed-up record exec, and Keira Knightley plays the heartbroken songwriter who sniffs at fame but might have the talent to redeem them both.
Knightley’s character, Gretta, is heartbroken because her boyfriend and musical collaborator, Dave, has become famous practically overnight, thanks to a Hollywood movie featuring his songs. Gretta is more a songwriter than a performer, and even though Knightley had sung before in a film, she wasn’t hired necessarily for her pipes. “[Carney] wasn’t looking for a voice that was going to carry a musical, and I know I don’t have that, but I think you can kind of get away with a lot more in folk music,” the actress says. “So we were kind of going for a talky-songy type vibe that we thought might be quite cool for her, and getting away from anything that was trying to pretend to be perfect.”
