Keira Knightley: Teenage Years Are for 'Getting Unbelievably Drunk' & 'Making Mistakes'

Keira Knightley: Teenage Years Are for 'Getting Unbelievably Drunk' & 'Making Mistakes'

Keira Knightley looks great on the cover of Elle UK magazine’s July 2014 issue, on newsstands June 5.

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On telling her future daughter to skip acting: “I’d absolutely tell her not to. I would 150 million trillion per cent be totally discouraging of [her] doing anything like that. I think you need to be, actually, because if the kid is going to do that then they have to do it on their own. And I would say teenage years should be done privately. You should be going out and getting unbelievably drunk, getting into ridiculous situations, making mistakes. That’s what that time of life is about and we should do that privately, one million trillion zillion per cent. Saying that, I don’t regret it – I wouldn’t do my life any differently, but having lived through it…There was a very long time when [interviewers] were all: ‘Well you’re a sh*t actress and you’re anorexic and people hate you’ which, for a teenager or somebody in their early 20s, is a very strange thing.”

On her secret wedding dress: “I wore it for the ceremony we had just for our friends, in a wood, because you have to have flowers on a dress in a wood.”

On first meeting Karl Lagerfeld: “I didn’t know I was meeting him, and I was so jet-lagged I didn’t know what was going on. I was in jeans and had acne – you know the kind where nothing is going to cover it – so I put a hat on. I remember somebody making a [negative] comment about it and I just thought [whispers] ‘I’m wearing a hat because I’ve got acne.’”

The full interview appears in the July issue of Elle UK, on sale June 5th. It’s also available as a digital edition. Check out ElleUK.com for more from Keira.

    Is she preg? Is she nuts? Sorry Keira but not everyone gets unbelievably drunk or makes many mistakes in their teenage years if you have a proper education. Society arent parents of every teen. Boooo!

    This woman says ridiculous things.

    Keira: This is ridiculous~~~>”’“I’d absolutely tell her not to. I would 150 million trillion per cent be totally discouraging of [her] doing anything like that.”’

    Me: There is no such thing as 150 million trillion percent.

    Keira: Another ridiculous statement of hers~~~> “”And I would say teenage years should be done privately. You should be going out and getting unbelievably drunk, getting into ridiculous situations, making mistakes.”"

    Me: Teens should NOT drink alcohol, let alone get drunk. And they certainly don’t have to get into ridiculous situations to mature into adults.

    She is so overrated. I get what she wanted to say – that you should enjoy being young and experiencing life, but she sounded stupid. Plus, she cannot freaking act. Saw 2 movies with her in the same day and she had the same face and silly expression all the time. Can’t believe she was nominated for an Oscar.

    I like how in these comments she is being called an idiot, in the most idiotic, literally retarded way ever. And don’t get me started on the American Patriot above.

    @Jeanie Oh quit being such a prude. I grew up in a small town and the majority of teens starting drinking in grade 9. We turned out just FINE.

    Nightwish Says:

    @AMERICA WINS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!: one thing i appreciate about this girl is she doesnt refrain from speaking her mind for the sake of being politically correct just to grow a fan base. She would rather die than be restricted in expression. If you are so shallow and craven to not comprehend her driving ethos here, namely, that teens should experience normal teen experiences along whatever that entails, then you are just part of the sheeple american populace that has been programmed into complete thought submission and unwilling to think
    outside the box. She is a realist, teens drink, we all have. Cut the rank hypocrisy and give this incredible woman a break.
