KEIRA Knightley hates being famous. The British actress admits she’s ill-equipped to cope with being recognized.
“I think it broke something in me,” Keira said of fame. “I was told very early on that if I didn’t go out to openings and parties and events I would be left alone. I didn’t, and they still didn’t leave me alone.”
“I knew it was part of the deal in the life I had signed up to, but the fear of it has never left me. I’m still not good at being recognized. I wear scruffy clothes and hats and keep my head well down,” she added. –SS
Keira has recently admitted she was on the verge of walking away from the movie industry a few years back because she “wasn’t enjoying” her Hollywood career.
“I think I intended not to work again. I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing and I felt terribly guilty about that. I remember hating the idea that I was in a privileged position and couldn’t see the point of any of it,” she said. SS
