Keira Knightley Says She's Often Mistaken for Natalie Portman & 'Feels Quite Sorry For Her'

Natalie Portman wears her gorgeous evening wear at the closing and award ceremony for the 2014 Shanghai International Film Festival held at the Shanghai Grand Theatre on Sunday (June 22) in Shanghai, China.

The 33-year-old actress also attended a press conference earlier in the day while in town.

Keira Knightley recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show, where she said she is often mistaken for Natalie!

Natalie Portman I get a lot, and I get chased through airports,” Keira shared. “I feel quite sorry for her because she must get chased a lot because it’s happened like five times where someone’s been like, Natalie! Natalie! Natalie!’ And I’ll sign and take a picture as Natalie.”

FYI: Natalie is wearing head-to-toe Dior with a Richard Mille watch at both events.

10+ pictures inside of Natalie Portman at the film festival…

    natalie is a midget with a nose job. and a “pretend” ballerina dancing to get an oscar. she’s willing to do anything for fame.

  • CarrieFromBelgium

    @James: you can wrote the same stuff on JLaw

    Kiera was Nathalie Portman’s stunt in one of StarWars movies

  • June

    She really likes that watch

  • Kat

    I’ve gotten them confused in the past, but if you’re having trouble telling them apart, just look for Natalie’s obvious beauty marks/moles on her face (I believe she has one of each side). Both beautiful and talented actresses.

  • Gaby Souza

    I thought I was the only one who think they look just the same! Love them both!

  • Hollywood

    natalie did have a nose job, but her face expressions are still weird. maybe she could grow a couple of inches. she’s so ugly in person.

  • Kee

    not shocking news since keira played one of Natalie’s (Padme’s) handmaidens in star wars who played as a decoy to when Padme was Queen Amidala. :)

  • Lyssa

    Idk why she feels bad for Natalie Portman when she’s the one that’s BEEN hounded by the paparazzi since she was 19. I’ve hardly heard of Natalie being stalked around.

  • Nightwish

    Keira is much physically and intellectually superior to natalie. There is no comparison. Its like comparing a goddess to a mortal.

  • Jake

    I’ll take Keira, preferably nightly

  • Amy Lee Christian

    Natalie Hershlag is a Zionist. She sends her money to Israel to buy Helicopters and cluster bombs to kill Palestinian Women and Children.

  • MM

    Ders a scene in thor 2 n nat is hopping on her two short legs. It was comical man. Dats why she cant do fashion

  • Abc123

    Keira has STYLE

  • Elaine

    Natalie plays it safe in the media. Keira says it the way it is. I think thats why public opinion with natalie is more favorable than that of keira. These actresses have a choice to play it politically correct or see their careers suffer a bit, which keira may be facing. She is not concerned with being likable.

  • Truth

    @Amy Lee Christian: Americas support for israel is destroying our country

  • Boring

    I don’t mind them both but they’re both boring and have serious jaw issues…in the sense that their jaws are more active than their actual acting skills in movies. Keira especially…

  • Nightwish

    @Boring: Knightley has perfect facial mathematics. Her bee-sting lips and exquisite jawline always induce a powerful erection with me. Why do women always bodysnark with her? I dont get it.

  • Fercat

    I like them both. They earned their spot, worked hard and got there.

  • Ha

    @Jake: LOL what a pun xD

  • boo

    I personally think Natalie Portman is more beautiful. She’s SO stunning imo. But I like Keira, there’s something attractive about her.

  • Armstrong

    Keira. I like british.

  • lulz

    @James: Im sick of jew hollywood too and thats why portman and jen lawrence get all the breaks and promotion while other gentile actresses struggle.
    Keiras awesome because she made it big without whoring herself out to producers and without help from being jewish. Props to her

  • Anon123

    @lulz: Jennifer isn’t Jewish.


    @Anon123: Jlaw and Knightley are both jewish brits. Strings pulled by mao. Who are you trying to kid.

  • Third eye blind

    @CALIFORNIALAND: Bullsh!t. Keira doesnt have a drop of joo blood in her, you trippin

  • Victoria

    Are you talking about the Natalie Portman that speaks 6 languages, graduated from Harvard and co author two scientific papers, and on her way of getting her master’s degree? If you think Keira is hotter than Natalie Portman fine. Beauty is subjective. Not saying Keira is dumb, but to say that she is intellectually superior is plain ridiculous.

  • Lucee!

    Keira is gorgeous. That is all.

  • lulz

    @Victoria: ‘co-authored’ 2 scientific papers? lol They were written by someone else and just stamped her name on it. Give me a break. And 6 languages? Hello, ko ni chi wa, anyong haseo, ni hao, bon jour, hola. I can speak 6 languages too! Its so easy to manufacture credentials if you are high profile enough and have jew friends. You can even get an oscar when you dont deserve one.

  • Annonymous

    @lulz: LMAO
    And Keira is not jewish.

  • Bebe

    Keira knightley’s mom is scot/welsh. Her dad is english as can be.

  • Letisha Malcolm UK

    Natalie is looking good as always and i am sick of people think that she has a nose job because she so does’nt

  • Ria

    Keira’s body rocks. Natalie has some scary looking knees!

  • angelinas

    Portman is average and doesnt compare to Keria in terms of acting or looks. Sorry but Portman lied about doing that dancing in Black Swan, and got knocked up by some Ballet-K fed who dumped his long-time girlfriend for her. Keria’s husband isn’t a gold digger or a famewhore like Portmans loser husband.

  • angelinas

    @Victoria: You know, universities like Yale and Harvard will accept you if you are a famous, rich star or a child of some politcian or someone with great connections. That how ppl like Portman, Franco, Emma Watson all got into those elite schools. Not based on marks, and are you talking about one of those papers where she compared eating meat to rape? And Natalie does not speak 6 lanagues, she herself even said its not true.

  • Bebe

    @angelinas: I think portman is barely recognizable on the street because she has little presence. Knightley comes walking down, watch out.

  • just me

    Both ladies are talent not like Rachel bilson who selling herself being pregnant to magzines tabloids. And hayden suppose to attended this as well. He was no show .He suppose to be a judge there too. Being around dumb woman like rachel has made his lazy.

  • http://-- Doesn’t Matter

    First Keira Keira Knightley and Jennifer Lawrence are not jews.. Second I really don’t get it ! Why everybody hates Natalie Portman .. it’s true that she has a nose job but this doesn’t make her fake. Please don’t understand me wrong I’m not her fan but how you can judge someone who you don’t know personally.
    P.S I don’t believe that she knows 6 languages too
