8 Reasons To Love Keira Knightley

By Betty Zhang

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. 

  • 1. Her Period Films

    Keira brought numerous classic and modern literary heroines to life, working alongside the likes of Jude Law and James McAvoy. Her performances are compelling and she looks flawless in those costumes!

  • 2. Her Versatility As An Actress

    She has been a pirate, psychiatric patient, soccer player, tragic heroine, singer and math genius, just to name a few. And there's a lot more to come. 

  • 3. Her Self-Deprecating Humour

    She's always telling the most hilarious and [self-deprecating tales](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FypcyrvpTp4)! They are usually about filming very [awkward scenes](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUsBdXrUhdk). Or how small her [boobs](http://imgur.com/90Isgnb) are. 

  • 4. Her Down To Earth Personality

    Pretty? Yes, very. Pretentious? No. Not ever. Interview, talk show, press release or red carpet, she never puts on any airs. She's genuine, funny and warm.

  • 5. Her Singing Skills

    She can sing! Keira sings (and is good at it) in her latest film [Begin Again](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTRCxOE7Xzc), also starring Mark Ruffalo. 

  • 6. Her Chanel Advert

    Keira is the face of [Coco Mademoiselle](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRV-2_Un-kk). Like Coco Chanel, she's a smart and stylish modern woman who embodies timeless elegance.  

  • 7. Her Style

    Naturally, the face of Chanel is a fashion icon with an impeccable sense of style. 

  • 8. Her Beauty

    And she's an absolute English rose, to top it all off!
