Keira Knightley Reveals Why She Took a Pay Cut to Do Theater
Keira Knightley bundles up while taking a stroll around town on Sunday afternoon (November 1) in New York City.
The 30-year-old actress is currently starring on Broadway in the new production of the play Therese Raquin and she recently opened up to THR about why she took a pay cut to be in the show.
“It’s very rare that I get offered interesting roles; there are very, very few out there for women,” Keira said. “And when something like this comes along, you go, ‘I can sink my teeth into it and not just be the supportive girlfriend or wife,’ which can get rather boring.”
Keira is reportedly being paid the scale rate of $1,300 a week for her work.
