Keira Knightley for Vogue US October 2012




On playing Anna Karenina: “When I reread the book last summer, I went, ‘Oh!’ It’s not a romance at all. I don’t think that Tolstoy is saying this is what you should do for love; quite a lot of the time he is saying the reverse. He hates Anna at certain moments. She is both a villain and a heroine. She can be incredibly vain and manipulative. She is somebody who breaks her own moral code, and yet the shame and disgust she lives with because of that make her fascinating.”

On whether she’ll spend Christmas with her family or fiance‘s family: “I have no idea; it’s a massive question. My family was just four and very simple. Now all of a sudden it’s breaking into different parts. I cannot imagine my mother letting us go.”

On starring in a West End play: “It was terrifying. I knew that I knew very little, but I didn’t realize how much I needed to pick up until four weeks before we opened. I mean technically, as in learning how to project into an 800-seat theater… I’d love to do a new play. Which is why I think Off-Broadway or in a smaller venue in London would be amazing.”
