Keira Knightley appears on the big screen in the movie Anna Karenina and she has compared her role as the titular character to that of Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. Keira claims that there are not that many great roles for women so she is proud to have been involved in two of them.
Knightley told Deadline, “There are really so few wonderful roles for women, she's up there as being incredibly complex and incredibly interesting. I was much more frightened playing Elizabeth Bennet; she's a character that you immediately fall in love with. Anna is absolutely not a character like that, so I don't think I felt the same terror as I felt taking on Elizabeth.”
Keira then went on to admit that she feels that she has come of age as an actress, “You don't wake up the morning and say, 'I am a woman now. Wow, I'm feeling really mature.' But, yeah, if the question is, 'Would you have played this role like this five years ago?', the answer is no,” she added.
Keira Knightley will next appear on the big screen in the movie Can a Song Save Your Life?, starring alongside the likes of Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld, Adam Levine and James Corden. Can a Song Save Your Life? is expected to be released next year.
