Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend are Shady

Keira Knightley, her boyfriend Rupert Friend, and a gal pal enjoy a sweet stroll along the River Seine in Paris, France on Sunday.

Keira is reportedly to star in a new film adaptation of Shakespearean tragedy King Lear.

The 23-year-old British actress will play Cordelia, the youngest daughter of King Lear, who will be portrayed by Sir Anthony Hopkins. Gwyneth Paltrow will play Regan, Lear’s treacherous middle daughter.

The $35 million film was announced at the Cannes Film Festival and will feature epic battle sequences.

keira is amzing

# 3

Ok, she’s wearing the high-waist jeans really nicely this time!

# 4

is that k.d.lang?

# 5

ooh, I’m excited for this movie! I actually like gwyneth and she plays a convincing period-piece brit, unlike keira, oddly enough.

# 6

You’re right, Helena. The jeans look much better in this pic.

# 7

wow. horrible jeans.

Ok someone is stuck in the past…she really needs to dress like someone living in 2008, not in the 70′s!!!

shes a great actress…

I don’t know how anyone could ever say an unkind word about her. She seems so lovely inside and out. Beautiful, charming, smart, funny, strong, and with a good head on her shoulders. Glad she’s found someone to make her happy, she and Rupert have been together forever!

Is it just me, or does she look oddly like Anne Hathaway with sunglasses on?

I love her, she looks so sweet !
But she’s always doing epic movies, I hope to see her in a rom-com soon !

The choice of jeans is still a little odd.

Rom com’s are boring and cliched. Unless she makes one with Paul Thomas Anderson, who make a masterpiece romcom (Punch Drunk Love).

High waisted jeans are making a comeback. All you morons criticizing her fashion sense will be running out to buy a pair in the fall after it hits the magazines, but by then they will be over.

Rupert looks so much like Orlando Bloom. What’s in their water over there?

I don’t see the problem with the jeans. In fact, I love them. They looked unflattering that other time we saw them, but she looks really chic here.

I don’t know, but it tastes like the worst water in the world.

i hope that they finally get married because she would be a great bride and then they can stay together forever and maybe sometime start a family. She would make a great mommy and he would make a great daddy for the kid.

no a good actress but has got charisma not very smart but adorable not sexy but attractive and classy btw i love her style the jean is sooooooo coool so stylish love it love her

#21 Not a good actress? She is a fantastic actress, can’t imagine anyone better. As far as rom/coms go, she was great in Bend It Like Beckham and Love Actually, I loved her in Pride and Prejudice.

It’s true, she is not very sexy but is beautiful in a very high style sort of way. She should put on some weight, though. I’ll bet Rupert can feel all her bones, nothing to hold on to – a size zero, no doubt. If you eat normally, you are not that bony.

not again... @ 05/19/2008 at 7:32 pm

I like Keira and all…. but what is her obsession about acting in “corset” movies? Every other movie that she does is set in the “olden times”. She needs to branch out. Enough already.

Are you kidding me…they do one of the great shakesprean plays again and they use HER, what they run out of talented british actresses?? AND don’t get me started on Gwen P.

im sick of how hollywood recycles the same people, when there’s much better out there.

The only name worth its mention was Hopkins..
Honestly, what is wrong with the industry

He’s ******* hot.
