The infrequent guest of glossy covers, KeirKnightley, will appear in November in a publication owned by the luxury online reseller Net-a-Porter, with whom she speaks mostly about work. About how she chooses roles and pictures in which she is ready to act, and what influences her decision. There really aren't many films with Knightley, and it's difficult to say what the actress prefers - historical dramas, funny action games for the whole family or controversial film adaptations of the classics of the past. Her last work, which appeared at the box office in the summer of 2014 - "The Imitation Game", was filmed based on the real events of the Second World War, and was preceded by a highly controversial Hollywood version of "Anna Karenina". So KeirKnightley's criteria for casting is really an interesting question.
In an interview with The Edit, the actress admits that she often refuses roles and projects that involve too much sex and violence under the conditions of the script. This, first of all, means that many of the pictures that have been released in the last 5 years could have had a completely different look, had Knightley been a little less scrupulous. This is primarily, of course, about blockbusters and psychological thrillers, where a woman often appears as a victim of circumstances or a prize for which the opposing sides are fighting. Alas, such images do not appeal to Keir Knightley (KeirKnightley). Her heroine wants to dispose of life on her own and, even in irresistibly difficult circumstances, continues to fight.
- I don’t want to say that there are no really interesting stories about violence and sex, but every time I think that any project of this kind is a waste of energy, meaningless charity for the sake of charity. This is a really tricky question: how ready are you to get naked in the frame? What do you think is acceptable and unacceptable?
