Keira Knigthley Covers 'Vogue' October 2012

Keira Knigthley Covers 'Vogue' October 2012

Keira Knightley graces the cover of Vogue‘s October 2012 issue, on newsstands September 25.

Here is what the 27-year-old Anna Karenina actress shared with the mag:

On whether she’ll spend Christmas with her family or fiance James Righton‘s family: “I have no idea; it’s a massive question. My family was just four and very simple. Now all of a sudden it’s breaking into different parts. I cannot imagine my mother letting us go.”

On starring in a West End play: “It was terrifying. I knew that I knew very little, but I didn’t realize how much I needed to pick up until four weeks before we opened. I mean technically, as in learning how to project into an 800-seat theater… I’d love to do a new play. Which is why I think Off-Broadway or in a smaller venue in London would be amazing.”

On playing the character Anna Karenina: “When I reread the book last summer, I went, ‘Oh!’ It’s not a romance at all. I don’t think that Tolstoy is saying this is what you should do for love; quite a lot of the time he is saying the reverse. He hates Anna at certain moments. She is both a villain and a heroine. She can be incredibly vain and manipulative. She is somebody who breaks her own moral code, and yet the shame and disgust she lives with because of that make her fascinating.”

FYI: Keira is wearing a Chanel Haute Couture lace-and-flower embroidered organza dress and metallic-leather gloves on the cover.

  • Bailey

    She makes me consider going lesbian, i must say

  • Tina

    Homely, overrated, no versatility, and frail!

  • rikki

    she’s got a very soft and feminine look BUT i always wonder if she is honestly naturally skinny (as she claims) or if she purposefully eats very little :\

  • Cindy

    She is stunning but w vulnerability to it somehow and great personality,always fun to watch her intvws
    However don’t quite get her as Anna Karenina….w Jude law,Aaron Johnson,Not likin the cast:( that said,she is a good actress

  • Nightwish

    If i had a wish, this is the girl i would want to be. Superlative beauty, fantastic talent, very intelligent, no vices or hangups like stupd american actresses, a fine example for youth today, the list goes on and on…

  • But….

    ..she’s starving

  • Thorgirl

    Keira has the sweetest pout of them all, scarlett has a nice one too

  • Bailey

    @Mim: Just curious, what actress are you facinated with?

  • Betina

    I just love her…
    Best actress ever…

  • Lisa

    She’s a fantastic actress. To play a role like Anna Karenina in her mid-twenties is insanely difficult, but she did it with panache. She’s getting great reviews for Anna Karenina already and I really hope to see a lot of her during awards season.

  • Mandalin

    Good heavens, i bet she’s as sweet smelling as a rose!

  • somali girl

    Her old nose fitted her face better this one makes her look like an alien.

  • anon


    Oh yeah, because American actresses (and I bet you’re talking about Americans in general, aren’t you?) are the only people in the world that have hangups and are stupid…. Seriously? It’s fine praising her, but WHY put down an entire nation along? Is it because she’s English and the English are supposedly classy, tea-loving, and, not to mention, bad-toothed people (yeah, I can also do stereotypes!)? And Americans are just ignorant, stupid, fat slobs? You really hit a ringer, didn’t ya?

    I’m obviously kidding about the English (love them!), but I just hate people like you who just believes anything the media imposes on them. There are plenty of classy American actresses just like there are plenty of “hung up” and “stupid” actresses around the world.

  • Anne

    Keira is amazing!!! Such a great body of work for her age and so pretty. Amazing pictures by Mario Testino.
    And for the people who keep saying she is starving… I have a couple of friends who are as skinny as Keira and they eat much more than the fatter ones. Some women have a slim body frame and a fast metabolism.

  • marianna

    @somali girl: thank you finaly someone nitice that to she made a nose job did she?? she didnt have that nose in her early carier!!!!!

  • somali girl

  • DanaJ

    You guys are insane she never had a nose job.

  • Melanie

    She simply cannot act.

  • excited

    I’m getting the magazine because Jude is in it too.

  • jd lang

    She has had a nose job everyone has, but she went a little overboard so that it looks slightly unnatural, she now has a overly manufactured face.
