Quotes[edit]

Jesus, if I know one thing about the industry, it's that it's a moment. A flash in the pan.

    • Interview for the Daily Mirror (August 2004)
  • There is definitely a fuck-you quality to the characters I choose.
    • Interview in Allure magazine (October 2007)
  • A lot of times in cinema today the women are overly sentimental, so I constantly try to do the opposite. I like strident women.

    • Interview in Allure magazine (October 2007)
  • Jesus, if I know one thing about the industry, it's that it's a moment. A flash in the pan. That's what's lovely about it. But it's hard, because one moment you're the hot thing, and the next moment — you're not. And there's no rhyme or reason for it.

Quotes about Knightley[edit]

  • Obviously we were looking for a beautiful young woman, but beauty alone is not enough. Keira is truly gifted and it is wonderful to watch her work. It seems so effortless. She's going to be a big star.
    • Jerry Bruckheimer, producer The Pirates of the Caribbean
  • It's a face audiences love to look at--a face that people can project their own emotions on, and she's incredibly lucky to look the way she does.
    • Joe Wright, her director in Pride & Prejudice (2005) and Atonement (2007).
  • Keira just steps into the ring and attacks. She's just as sweet as she can be and has a great sense of humor.
    • Johnny Depp, co-star in The Pirates of the Caribbean.

  • For me, the more important thing for this film is someone who has the acting ability as opposed to the singing. To me, your voice is sort of like a gift from God. There’s nothing you can do about it, and it’s not that interesting to me in a movie. So I didn’t want Gretta to just stand up by a mic and have this amazing singing voice. I wanted the idea of the voice to sell what she’s talking about lyrically and where she’s coming from, and Keira was very good at doing that.
