British babe Keira Knightley takes the cover of Interview magazine’s April 2012 issue. Photographed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, 27-year-old popular star shows off her edgy side in the issue sporting dark outfits from Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent etc.
Check out some excerpts from her interview with mag:
On how she’s doing and where she is: “I’m good. I’m in London. I’ve just left somebody in the kitchen making a chicken curry, and I was meant to be helping him, but now I’m not. [laughs]”
On playing two Russian women in a row: “I’m not quite sure what that’s about. I seem to be having a Russian moment. I’ve never even been to Russia. I didn’t [do a Russian accent].”
On portraying a real person vs. a fictional one: “There’s always the moral question when you’re playing real people. Is it like dancing over somebody’s grave? What’s nice about playing somebody real is that generally there’s more information about them, so a lot of the questions that you’d otherwise have to make up the answers to are already there.”
On the English fascination with spanking: “I know with A Dangerous Method people liked the spanking an awful lot. [laughs] It’s weird, though, with the spanking. In England, it was pretty much the only thing I got asked about. I’m not quite sure what that says about the English. . . [spanking is] really huge in England.”
On choosing roles: “If I had to make a choice, it would be to do the performance-based pieces, which, generally speaking, are the less technical pieces. When you’re working in a space where it’s really about the technical side of it, then it’s even harder to maintain a performance because you have todo things so many times from so many different angles. It’s actually something that I would like to figure out. I’m quite interested to see whether you could maintain a high-energy performance in that kind of technical arena.”
On Seeking a Friend for the End of the World with Steve Carrell: “He has this amazing ability to be incredibly funny but have that pathos at the same time – sort of that crying-clown thing. The movie itself has comic moments, but it’s about the end of the world, so obviously it has an apocalyptic feel to it that’s not that comic, because everybody dies … Other than that, though, it’s hilarious.”
