Keira Knightley Covers 'Elle' March 2010

Keira Knightley Covers 'Elle' March 2010

Keira Knightley graces the cover of Elle magazine’s March 2010 issue, on newsstands Tuesday, February 16.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress, who wore Donna Karan on the cover, had to share:

On her character in The Misanthrope: “Jennifer’s kind of a crazy mix of being a complete b—- – confident and terrifying – yet she’s incredibly young and is probably being exploited way more than she actually realizes.”

On criticism of her acting: “Oh, they still say that! Every time I do an interview with the English press, one of their questions is, ‘How do you feel knowing that everyone thinks you’re a s— actress?’”

On surrounding herself with people who will tell her the truth: “You have to be selective about the people whose advice and opinions you take. I know [my parents] would never tell me I was s— because they were trying to hurt me. It would always come from a very sincere place.”

FYI: Keira is wearing the new Vera Wang Spring runway necklace, available at Vionnet.

  • Pry

    She is amazing! I love her !

  • HeyHowAreYa

    She looks gorgeous, but why did they manipulate her arm in the picture to make it look as though it’s a child’s or something? When will magazine photoshop artists ever learn?

  • cornelia

    gorgeous as always

  • All Women Stalker

    Beautiful girl but that is some horrible photoshopping.

  • bbwloversmatch

    she is so pretty

  • Love Jolie, Hate her fans

    I’m sorry but if people say your stuff is s___, then it is… its not to hur/t you… they dont care enough about u to “hurt” u.

  • Elena

    she’s 24, on the 26th of march she will become 25! she’s lovely ♥

  • Jen

    Gorgeous girl! She is extremely talented and the critics really don’t say that about her anymore. In fact, she got really good reviews for her play with exception of a few British tabloids.

  • lakers fan in boston

    i like her interview
    at least she’s honest that when other ppl tell her she’s crap that she acknowledges it in some way
    the cover is amazing, she looks so pretty, like what she’s wearing as well

  • Celia

    She did something to her face. It looks weird. It hasn’t always looked like that.

  • Jen

    love herrr

  • datingdoctors

    I love her!

  • emmy jay

    Shoddy job of photo shopping, for sure.

    I happen to like her, and think she’ll grow into better roles. Besides, she made a ton of money from the Pirates movies, and could do theater for the rest of her days if she should choose.

  • mickey

    That’s a bad shot of her. She looks old and gaunt…well…she always looks gaunt but this is kind of hard version of it.

  • Calia

    I can’t stand her facial expressions. She was good in Pride and Prejudice, however.

    Other than that, it’s awkward to watch her “try” to act.

    She’s all bones, too., Yuck! Her features are sharp.

  • dd

    Really weird

  • Carey

    her head is disproportionately large

  • ellie’

    She is gorgeous and looks so on the magazine cover…also love her acting..

  • hello1

    where is all this bad acting talk coming from? just British tabloids, over here in America she’s proven shes a great actor. I never had a problem with her in Pirates, and she got nominated for Best Actress for Pride and Prejudice, then came Atonement where her acting was praised and nominated for alot of other awards, then Edge of Love where she does incredible singing which I believe gave her an edge to do the remake of My Fair Lady

  • RodneyClint

    I was wondering the same thing about this “bad acting” nonsense, the girl is talented and her nominations show it, and she is so young so she can only get better.

  • amber

    umm all of her movies rock
    shes no shit actress

  • Provaiders

    She’s cute! nice figure.
