Keira Knightley Talks About the Difficulties of Motherhood, Even with 'Amazing Privilege'

Keira Knightley hits the red carpet at the premiere of her movie Colette on Thursday night (January 10) in Paris, France.

The movie was released in the U.S. back in September and it has slowly been hitting theaters around the globe since then. France is one of the last countries to get the movie and it will be released there on January 16.

Keira recently opened up about motherhood.

“I don’t think we give women enough credit for the physical and emotional marathon they go through when becoming a mother,” Keira told Balance. “I come from a place of amazing privilege. I have an incredible support system; I’ve been unbelievably lucky in my career; I can afford good childcare, and yet I still find it really f— difficult.”

“It’s OK to say that. It doesn’t mean I don’t love my kid, it’s just me admitting that the sleep deprivation, the hormonal changes, the shift in relationship with my partner, are all things that make me feel as if I’m failing on a daily basis. I have to remind myself that I haven’t failed, I’m just doing what I can do, but it’s not easy,” she added.

FYI: Keira is wearing Chanel.
