Keira Knightley Was Scared She'd Be Fired from 'Pirates'

Keira Knightley gets animated while telling a story during her interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday evening (November 19) in New York City.

The 29-year-old actress was seen earlier in the day heading to NBC Studios wearing overalls under a pea-coat and a beanie.

Keira recently chatted about fearing she would be fired from Pirates of the Caribbean before starting filming. “I remember going to Hollywood… I had only packed a small bag because I was convinced they were going to fire me,” she said.

“Being a teenager that’s come out of sort of big blockbuster films, there was a lot of criticism,” Keira said (via Page Six). “People saying, ‘She’s s–t, she can’t act, she can’t do it. What’s the point? She’s pouty, she’s thin.’ Being a teenager, you do read it all . . . you go, ‘Oh, my God, I’m that awful.’”

    Keira Knightley seems like a perfectly nice person. And she’s obviously stunning and photogenic. But I avoid her movies because she has zero charisma on screen and I’m not convinced by her acting. She can’t carry a movie.

    You are so wrong, Keira is a great actress. I bet you that you are so jealous of her, she has a life, you NOT.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Keira is super talented & gorgeous! But what I really love about her is that she doesn’t go around saying dumb things that later on she might regret. Always had her head on right.

    Why do you have to be so incredibly exceptional, Keira? You are AWESOME

    I think she really is one of those girls who are thin no matter what. Some celebs who are skinny now, have pictures from their teen years being regular girls or being thin but not skinny. But Keira has always been very thin. A friend of mine is supper skinny and she would do anything to gain weight and it just doesn’t work for her. So it’s horrible that Keira always got so much bad press about being thin. Let alone being bad actress, cause she is amazing.

    She’s awesome! Love her!
