  • Keira Knightley looks to ‘Colette’ for courage in the battle against her own self-doubt

    LOS ANGELES TIMES – At first, Keira Knightley thought everything was going to be fine.

    Her pregnancy had been delightful, so she’d give birth to her first child and then continue working at her normal pace. A Broadway show and two films in a year? Try her.

    But after Knightley had her daughter, Edie, things didn’t go according to plan. She was hormonal, for one. And tired. Because Edie never seemed to sleep.

    Still, she intended to keep her obligations. She performed eight times a week in a stage production of “Thérèse Raquin” and then filmed a supporting role in the drama “Collateral Beauty.”

    But in the summer of 2016, staring down the lead role in the period drama “Colette,” Knightley decided she needed a break.

    “I was like, ‘I can’t. I literally can’t,’ ” the actress said. “I am so tired. I am so hormonal. I can’t deal with this big character right now. So they very sweetly said, ‘We’ll put it off for a year.’ ”

    Director Wash Westmoreland wasn’t exactly thrilled to push the start date on “Colette” — “no one welcomes that news,” he said — but with the well-reviewed film set to open in theaters Friday, that delay ended up being “the best thing that ever happened.”

    The filmmaker was able to spend the year finessing the script about the renowned French novelist, who initially wrote under her husband’s name until her work became so successful in the early 1900s that she fought for recognition.

    ‘Colette’ Gallery Additions

    I’ve updated the gallery with a large batch of new hi-resolution photos from Keira’s latest film, Colette. I can’t wait to see this one! Enjoy the photos.

    Keira in ‘The Endings’ Photography Book

    I’ve updated the gallery with some gorgeous shots of Keira from Caitlin Cronenberg’s new photography book, The Endings. These photos were originally published online a few weeks ago, but I’ve found an additional shot that you may not have seen. You can order a copy of the book here. Enjoy!

    Featuring some of today’s most beloved actors, these piercing photographic vignettes capture female characters in the throes of powerful emotional transformations. Photographer Caitlin Cronenberg and art director Jessica Ennis collected stories of heartbreak, relationship endings, and new beginnings-fictional but often inspired by real life-and set out to convey the raw emotions that are exposed in those most vulnerable of states. Collaborating with celebrated talents such as Julianne Moore, Keira Knightley, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Cronenberg and Ennis developed each character, built her world, and then photographed as she lived the role before the camera. The resulting collection is a bold look at the experience of losing or leaving love and will speak to anyone who appreciates art, photography, and the strength of facing emotional depths head-on.

    TIFF Portraits & Site Update

    At long last, I have updated the gallery with the portrait sessions of Keira taken whilst promoting Colette at the Toronto International Film Festival last week. It’s great to have her back at big events like this, and it’s hard to believe four years have passed since she was last in attendance to promote Laggies and The Imitation Game. Photos from the festival will follow tomorrow, as well as other missing events from this year.

    As you will have noticed, updates have been slow over the past few months, the gallery, in particular – had not been updated for quite a while. I have been working behind the scenes on the site in my spare time, aiming to expand the main site content and also reorganize the photo gallery. Initially I had hoped to be able to achieve this while still using the current one, but the task was too complicated and I had to start over. You can find the link for the new gallery here. It’s not yet fully completed, but I have worked hard to find missing photoshoots, stills, scans etc. as well as replacing older screen captures with better quality ones. The task is a big one, and the work is still ongoing, but the next step is a relaunch of our main site – new designs, improved content and more frequent updates. Thank you for sticking with us!

    Keira on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

    How great is it to have Keira back in the spotlight? I’ve certainly missed her interviews, and yesterday she made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert whilst promoting Colette in New York City.

    The ‘Colette’ star, who shares Stephen’s passion for classic Emma Thompson movies like ‘Sense and Sensibility,’ is a newly-minted Officer of the British Empire.

    Keira Knightley Would Love to Play Florence Nightingale

    VARIETY – Filmmaker Wash Westmoreland, and actresses Keira Knightley and Denise Gough dropped by the Variety Studio presented by AT&T at the Toronto Film Festival to discuss their new movie, “Colette,” which tells the story of French novelist Gabrielle Colette.

    Westmoreland co-wrote the film with his late partner, Richard Glatzer, who he had previously written and directed all his movies with, including “Still Alice,” which won Julianne Moore the Oscar for best actress. The pair had wanted to make “Colette” for years and before Glatzer passed away from complications due to ALS in March 2015, he hoped it would be their next project.

    “He got to see Julianne win the Academy Award when he was in the ICU in the hospital,” Westmoreland revealed. “We knew we had a chance now, we had a springboard into our next film. And I said, ‘What is it to be?’ At the time, he was just typing with his toe and he typed ‘Colette’ on his machine. And two weeks later, he passed away. But I knew what I had to do and set about doing it.”

    Westmoreland said his first solo directing effort proved to be emotional. “It was difficult because Richard and I had worked so closely for so many years. We knew each other so well, having written together, worked together, slept together, done everything together for so long that part of my mind is Richard, and sometimes when I would be faced with a difficult problem, I would ask: ‘What would Richard say?’ And the answer would be there.” Westmoreland added that in many ways, he considers Glatzer a co-director on the film.

    Knightley has played a number of dynamic women in her career, and noted that portraying Colette was empowering. “I was like, ‘Oh, I like walking in your shoes, this is great. I walk tall.’”

    When Knightley and Gough were asked about other powerful women they would like to portray, Gough joked, “I would like to play Keira Knightley in the story of her life.”

    Knightley added that she’d be interested in the stories of Josephine Bonaparte and Florence Nightingale. Gough said, “I think we could always do with another Joan of Arc. You can never get enough Joan.”

    Gough then revealed that she has a personal connection to a historical woman ripe for a biopic. “I’m also a direct descendant of the first-ever female pirate, Grace O’Malley,” she said. “The first-ever female pirate was an Irish woman who led ships full of men.”
