Keira Knightley On Acting Career: “I Like The Differences”



Keira Knightley first gained fame back in 2002 for her work in Bend It Like Beckham, and in the ensuing years she’s become an international star, confidently dipping her creative feet in blockbusters (Pirates of the Caribbean films, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), period films/historical dramas (A Dangerous Method, Anna Karenina, Pride & Prejudice), and off-center, character driven narratives (Never Let Me Go, Seeking A Friend for the End of the World).

No matter what genre she takes on, Knightley sees each venture as a challenge. “I certainly don’t sneer at big budget things and I don’t sneer at small budget things,” says the actress who will also be seen later this year opposite Sam Rockwell and Chloe Grace Moretz in Laggies. “It’s about the opportunity to do all different styles – for me.” Click on the media bar below to hear Keira Knightley talk about her work in Anna Karenina, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and Begin Again:
