Keira Knightley @ 'Silk' Premiere
Keira Knightley (in Erdem) is joined by co-stars Michael Pitt and Sei Ashina at the Silk premiere screening during the Toronto International Film Festival 2007 held at the Elgin Theatre on Tuesday.
She was recently asked by Entertainment Weekly if getting nominated for an Oscar in 2006 has changed things for for her. Here’s Keira‘s response: “No, not really — apart from the fact that it was a wonderful kind of pat on the back. I know that sounds like nothing, but it was actually really needed at that point. Before Pride & Prejudice, I’d done Bend it Like Beckham and Pirates, and they were incredibly successful films, but I think people were very much looking at me going, ”Oh, she’s a pretty face, there isn’t much else to her.” And I was incredibly aware of that. I think you’re aware of everything that’s written about you when you first start. And then you learn not read all that. [Laughs] And I knew people had thought it was ridiculous that I was cast as Elizabeth Bennet. So when the reviews came out, it really helped.”
