Keira Knightley on Love, Fear and What Makes Her Jealous
By Chrissy Iley
Love: "It's nice to feel wanted, like you're being chased. It's hard to have a relationship when I'm working so much, though. But then you have to think, What is actually important in life? Is career your only thing? If it is, then it's easy, but if it isn't, that's sad, because there's going to come a day when you're left lonely. It's a difficult compromise. I think you've got to strive for balance. It's the striving that counts. If you're someone like me, who has always been very driven, to suddenly step back and decide, 'Well, love is the only thing,' then you need to build up your relationships."
Outrage: "Rudeness outrages me, professionally and personally. Things on a bigger scale going on in the world also constantly outrage me ‑- turn on the news to see. But small things outrage me, too, like seeing a group of kids picking on one kid. I'm constantly outraged and constantly doing very little about it, which is actually an outrage in itself."
Life goals: "Happiness is my life goal. 'Keep on learning' is a good goal. Never get stagnant."
Frustration: "Fear frustrates me, and it also drives me. More than anything, I get frustrated with myself."
