Keira Knightley Says 'Criticism Was Tough' Entering Hollywood at a Young Age

Keira Knightley Says 'Criticism Was Tough' Entering Hollywood at a Young Age

Keira Knightley goes for a lovely floral look on a date night with her husband James Righton on Saturday evening (July 12) in London, England.

The 29-year-old actress and her hubby were joined by a pal for their night on the town.

“The criticism was tough,” Keira told The Telegraph about being in the limelight at a young age. “At school I’d always been good at things. And drama was always something I’d been good at. I was picked for good parts in the school plays and you form a sense of yourself from that. And then all of a sudden people are saying: ‘No, you’re sh*t. You don’t know what you’re doing.’ It’s a strange jolt in how you see yourself and how you connect to the thing that you love.”

FYI: Rashida is wearing Celine pants, a J Brand shirt, a Madewell jacket, and Isabel Marant shoes. Debra is wearing a Hellessy dress with Sergio Rossi shoes. Kate is wearing the Frame Nikki jeans by 25 Park, Valentino shoes, and Isabel blazer.

    They were not expecting the paparazzi to be outside. They both look surprised!

    Keira articulated her feelings well in this interview. I’m sure it was hard and I feel bad for her but she really wasn’t a good actress when she got famous. The criticism was warranted.

    it’s true, but when you are a **** like me, it’s practically impossible.

    Yeah she was pretty much stalked outside her house like 24/7. Sometimes I look at her tag here from like a decade ago and wow she never looked happy and was photographed outside her house every day.

    And she was only like freakin’ 21 at that time! Jeez. She proved herself as an actress once she got an Oscar nomination at 19 and again and again through Atonement; her fame because of the Pirates movies was what made the British press accuse her of anorexia. That’s the criticism she’s speaking of. I believe she had to sue the paper for blaming her for the death of a certain girl.
