  • yay

    I think Kiera Knightly will be a perfect Eliza Doolittle! Way to go Kiera.

  • fan

    Keira is the modern Audrey Hepburn so whay not cast her in My Fair Lady?

  • candy

    nobody can replace Audrey Hepburn

  • suzy

    why on earth would anyone want to do a remake of such a classic film. there is no way that keira could ever match audrey hepburn’s performance. and there was only one man born to the play the role of henry higgens and that was rex harrison.

  • klaudynka

    lov keira :*

  • rolling eyes

    sucks balls

    there are other british actress that exist

  • on a roll

    Ms. Knightley is on FIYAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! when you are very professional and have talent, you get the jobs. When you are walking around Hollywood with a stupid overpriced coffed in your hand, and a purse big enough to be a suitcase all you get is pap pics on trashy blogs.

    Nobody thought they could replace Julie Andrews but they did with Audrey. Now Audrey will be replaced with Keira who will play a firece Eliza.

    By the way My Fair Lady, both the musical and film were remakes of a earlier 1930′s film and play called Pygmailian. That was waaaaay better than My Fair Lady.

    OMG lmao

  • Annika

    I like Keira but she would make a HORRIBLE Eliza Doolittle.
    A remake of the movie starring Keira will be a nightmare.

  • nile

    yes my fair lady musical and remake movie.but keira looks like audrey hepburn.its deficit.because keira to play second string to hepburn.

  • Annika

    It’s an insult to Audrey Hepburn if you compare Keira with her.

  • suzy86

    I agree #13.

    Kiera even said she wasn’t a singer, why would she audition/accept this role?

    this is horrendous. She is- nor will she ever be an Audrey Hepburn.

    They need to leave the classic film alone, there’s nothing wrong with it.

    Is Hollywood all out of ideas that they think it’s a good thing to remake a classic? Are they ballistic? I think so.

  • Troy

    I like Keira but I just can’t see this, I don’t know why at her young age she would want to put herself in a postion to inevitably be compared to a legend like Audrey Hepburn. Can she even sing? Or will they just dub someone else’s singing voice. I’m sure they did that’s what they did in the original film.

    I think it was the same lady who dubbed Natalie Wood’s singing voice in “West Side Story” but I’m not 100% postive on that. Like I said before I like her and I’m curious to see who they cast Henry Higgins but I’m not sure this was the best choice for her.

  • eddie

    Kelly O’Donnell. She had her name legally changed. They’re all O’Donnells now (Ro, Kel, kids).

  • to anon

    you’re right my fair lady was a play first. but if you read the write up they are going to keep it as a musical. with cameron mcintosh producing it. however, it does not take away from the fact that, as an actress, keira knightley is insipid. the thought of her cast in the part of eliza doolittle leaves me cold surely to god there is another actress out there who could do justice to this part. someone who could, for a moment, make people forget audrey hepburn or julie andrews.

  • regm

    Yeah! Keira can sing, and she does it pretty well:

    It´s her, her voice. She has not been dubbed.

  • Ashley griffith

    I think that keira would make a great eliza dolittle she is a great actress and she is british so she would fit in well with the crowd and she would not have to learn a british acccet becasue she is british. Keep going keira you are doing great keep it up.

    I love Kiera. Her hair looks better dark all the way, instead of highlighted, but she is so cute. What a talented actress.

  • http://justjared Victoria

    Just clicked on the ” brody Jenner’s mom” . I believe it is a little much for a mother to be parading around in that swimsuit and over-done breast in her 50′s, but I guess she figures,” if i have it, why not”? What do you you guys think? Click on her pictures under Kiera’s caption.

  • Cecilia

    She is so pretty and so talented.

  • barbie

    Brody Jenner’s Mom is awesome. She looks like a fun Mom too.

  • dildos
