Keira Knightley - Quotes
When I was about 5 we think, I desperately wanted to be a pirate and have the hat and everything.
I feel less blonde now and, er, smarter!
The problem for me was that by being in the film the magic was broken. I loved the first Star Wars film and my mum was really into it too, that's why I took the part. But the Force wasn't there when we were filming it, and they didn't have real light sabres, which annoyed me.
I was told I didn't have to do it, but I said, 'No, it's a beautiful scene, we have to do it.' It's extraordinary that you can cause an uproar by getting your tits out.
At the end of the two days it was time for me to jump off, and Gore (the director) said to me, 'you don't actually have to jump off; I can get a stunt girl to do that. But I told him: 'I've been standing up here terrified for two days, there is no way I'm not jumping off!' So I jumped off the plank, and I got a big pirate cheer at the end from all the guys, which was a very big compliment.
It's not everyday you get to do a pirate movie, you might as well go for it.
I tried college for three months but I was desperately unhappy. I just wanted to perform. I was getting straight As but I had no friends and cried every day.
History was always my favorite subject anyway, and I love reading, kind of, biographies and that sort of stuff.
I think every girl is looking for her Mr Darcy.
It's scary because acting was always my salvation from school. So if anything had gone wrong at school, I could say, 'Oh, but I can do this.' But now it's the only thing. So you sort of think, 'Okay, but what happens if that goes wrong? What's the salvation?' That's a bit scary.
Yes, I have breasts. So does 50% of the population. Do we really have to waste time talking about mine? I don't think so.
You go back to the sort of Errol Flynn movies, and the real swashbuckling kind of things, and yeah, I knew about them.
I'm doing a film now with a lot of guys as well, so at the end of that I will be growing a beard.
Somebody thought it would be a great idea if they brought their teenage daughters along to the set on the day that we did the kissing scene - I thought I was gonna die! I thought they'd stampede me with the evil eyes I was getting from all of them.
I finished filming Pirates a couple of days before my 18th birthday, and made sure I was in London to celebrate it. There's no point having an 18th birthday in America, it doesn't mean anything as you can't go out and drink.
He was completely amazing, ... He did love having six women around him all the time. We took him to a party one night but he was wearing a mask, because he can't be around cigarettes but felt anyone who wanted to smoke could, so he came with a little mask he wore.
I've got a kind, close-knit family group.
I did a film called The Hole when I was 16 and, when it came out, a couple of the popular girls at school said, quite loudly, 'She's in a crap movie, so it doesn't count.' It was rude and I was upset, but if you let that stuff bother you, you're going to be in for a tough time. I wasn't popular at school. I learned to let those comments wash over me. I toughened up quite quickly.
They're all fab and they tell me when I'm acting up and laugh at me as much as possible, which is important.
I finished filming Pirates a couple of days before my 18th birthday, and made sure I was in London to celebrate it. There's no point having an 18th birthday in America, it doesn't mean anything as you can't go out and drink!
My friends are laughing at me after last night's premiere and taking the piss out of me mercilessly for pouting as much as I did in front of the cameras!
