    I thought that was Rumer Willis

  • Kirsten

    Very sweet comment. They were a lovely couple in Love Actually. I am so happy for Chiwetel as well. He is tremendous in every role he takes.

  • Big Difference!

    Keira is physically beautiful. Rumer is not. Sorry.

  • LaCroix

    Im sure i has nothing to do with that he’s British like herself.. get real McConaughey deserves that Oscar!

  • Penelope

    Keira is SO gorgeous!

  • Shy

    I love Keira for her honesty. Here she’s rooting for someone less popular and not hyped by the media machine for someone who gave just as fantastic a performance, if not better than the other guys, and i admire her for that.

  • Everhart

    Face, hair, facial bone structure of an angel on that girl :-)

  • Shy

    @LaCroix: Lay of the snark will ya, the brits are always snubbed with oscars so why not?

  • Jussayin

    Congratulations to the cast of jack ryan.. Its up to 80 million gross worldwide now. Not bad!

  • Nona

    I hope too Chiwetel gets the Oscar, McConaughey plays the same character in pretty much every movie.

  • Elena Christina

    I want her jacket, skirt, shoes. And looks.

  • Mandoubt

    I also wish he would win but there is is no damm way a black dude from england will win an oscar. Get real. That efiojor dude will be passed over because its like throwing the award to the dogs as far as the commitee is concerned.

  • IzzaBel

    What amazes me about Keira is that she looks so good with very little make-up on

  • Scepticus

    The academy award oligarchs would never have it so his fans can dream on

  • Third eye

  • http://www.ru.co EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    .
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    .
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    .
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!
    .
    PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

  • IO

    She has a fantastic classy fashion sense. This girl just doesn’t screw up.

  • Please

    @EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!: Kindly get your stupid ‘asians can read minds’ spam off this website!

  • allison

    @WTHello: I’m tired of superhero movies. So if I have to take 2 or 3 superhero movies a year, you can take 2 or 3 slavery or holocaust movies every decade.

  • Jussayin

    @allison: I agree with you about superhero movies. Way too much. Everything seems the same already. Another challenge to cinema going forward. But the next ironman will make over a billion even though the last one was bad.

  • Lisa

    Anyone know what brand name made the coat that Kiera is wearing? I want it.

  • starchy

    @WTHello: well no worries, I’m betting you aren’t out watching them!

  • Cate

    Yay Keira! I love what she said about Chiwetel. She is so right.

  • Betty

    How about a black superhero movie?
    Hollywood only makes movies with black people when they play side kicks, slaves or maids. I am pretty tired of that one too!

  • Bebe

    @Betty: They also make them play cops

  • .

    Yes another Keira post she looks great

  • Jussayin

    @Betty: When is keira going to play a superhero? That i would love to see!

  • Everhart

    In most of her pics lately, i notice she has this melancholy expression on her face like she is in deep thought.

  • Julia

    Aw! They were relatively unknown while shooting “Love, Actually”, their names were at the end of the opening credits. And look how far they’ve gone.
    Now that Mr. Hanks is out of the picture, my heart is torn between Chiwetel and Matthew, who both gave such phenomenal performances. I also want Leo to win, and haven’t seen Nebraska yet.

  • Dubstep_ empress

    I love keira but i hope leo wins
