"I fear everything. New characters, new parts, first days of filming and premieres always terrify the life out of me. And horses. Small things terrify me. If I go out, I never know what to say. I always feel self-conscious. I’m shit at socializing, and also dealing with crowds. I don’t like to stand around and pretend I’m a lady.”

"Hollywood has a really long way to go.  I don’t think that anybody can deny that, really, and I think as much as you are getting more women playing lead roles… they’re still pretty few and far between."  Keira Knightley for Harper’s Bazaar

When you put yourself in these huge popcorn movies you get out there, in the public arena, more than anyone else. But that also means that you’re out there to be criticised more than anyone else. With Keira Knightley, she’s brave to do her play. Because, for some reason, if you’re successful in Britain, people tend not to like you. But if you’re a successful woman, and beautiful, in Britain, you’re even more disliked.

When I was turning 28, I thought, ‘Shit, that sounds grown-up. What I am going to do?’ Then I saw a picture of me when I was nine wearing dungarees, and thought I should buy some. My friend then got me a pair of fairy wings, so I sat there on my 28th birthday in fairy wings and dungarees, and I’ve never been happier.

I’m scruffy, and have always been scruffy. Obviously I’m not today, but somebody has been hired to make me look not scruffy! I was never into fashion when I was younger, so fashion is a world I find myself in having never meant to be here.
I think we certainly see the world in a similar way, and that’s helped our creative relationship. We describe emotions in a similar way. We both have a chip on our shoulders about the lack of education, and probably that’s from being seen as stupid before we were diagnosed [with dyslexia].

Keira Knightley: “I’m a film lover and I don’t watch my own so I get completely inspired by other people’s work and that’s what drives me forward. When you have jealousy of that kind it means you’re not enjoying what you love. It takes away your own pleasure. I am always very grateful when people are making great work.”

She shared a lot of advice with me. I had so much to learn from her and the beauty of what I get to do working with such incredibly talented people is just being in their presence, I’m able to pick up on so much. Sometimes at the end of the day, it’s not what they say, it’s what they do that really stands out to me. And Keira was just all around so amazing, and I’m such a fan of hers and to be able to work with her was truly special.
