Posted in Eva Mendes, Kiera Knightley on October 28, 2010 by fadedblog

The marital drama Last Night opened the Rome film festival this evening (October 28).

It deals with questions of temptation, betrayal and defining infidelity, and its stars Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes say there are no easy answers.

The movie is about a married couple struggling to confront temptation: For Keira’s character it’s an old, never-quite-forgotten French love; for her husband, played by Avatar star Sam Worthington, it’s a work colleague played by Eva.

Their moral struggle plays out over the course of one night they spend apart.

At a press conference, Keira says each situation is different and the movie doesn’t take a view on whether one is worse, physical infidelity or an unconsummated affair.

“I think everyone can recognize the scenarios that happen within this piece, I think that most people have at least been one person, if not all four, at some point in their life,” Knightley told reporters after a press screening. “In most films there are goodies and baddies, what I liked about this script is that it did not take a standpoint, that there is no conclusion.”

Keira Knightley showed off her new haircut at the 54th Annual Times BFI London Film Festival in London this evening (October 13).

Joined by co-star Carey Mulligan, the British actress was on hand to premiere her new movie Never Let Me Go.

While Keira looked fabulous in a knee-length gold frock with sexy cut-outs, Carey seemingly forgot to visit her seamstress as she donned a rather ill-fitting halter dress.

Meanwhile, Keira she is filled with doubts and insecurities, and often questions whether she is deserving of her success.

Keira Knightley admits she doesn’t always think she deserves to be famous.

Despite a glittering Hollywood career, the 25-year-old beauty has struggled to acknowledge how successful she has become as an actress.

“It’s taken me time to overcome my own doubts and insecurities,” she says. “It’s been my nature not to want to believe in my own success and that I don’t deserve my success. But that’s something I’ve fought to overcome.”

Keira is also still terrified about starting on a new movie set.

She explains: “I’m getting better, but the terror is still occasionally there! Sometimes you have to fight your fear prior to an important scene. You don’t want to make a mess of things. I try not to place so much pressure on myself now.”

However, the actress is determined not to let her nerves or self-doubt affect her future career path.

She says: “I’m still young and know I will be able to show people that I can play much more complex characters than anything I’ve done up to now. I just have to be patient and take advantage of opportunities that come my way.”


Posted in Andrew Garfield, Carey Mulligan, Kiera Knightley on October 13, 2010 by fadedblog

The London Film Festival opened today (October 13) with the European premiere of Never Let Me Go, a movie with a hauntingly off-kilter setting and a universal emotional punch.

Stars Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield were all smiles as they walked down the red carpet in Leicester Square before the gala evening screening that kicks off the two-week extravaganza of 300 movies from 67 countries.

Never Let Me Go is an adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro‘s Booker Prize-nominated novel about three boarding school friends who discover complicated feelings for one another — and the dark fate that awaits them beyond the school grounds.

Set in a gentle English dystopia, the actors said they were struck by the emotional force of the tale.

Carey called it, “a love story about people who want very simple things from life and can’t get them.”

She added that she, Andrew and Keira were in awe of the novel and its author. She said: “Keira and I did Pride and Prejudice together. We’ve done lots of adaptations of Dickens and Austen and things where the author’s not around to tell you off if it’s rubbish. So this was sort of doubly intimidating.”

The 54th London film festival runs until October 28 and Danny Boyle‘s 127 Hours, based on the true story of climber Aron Ralston who amputated his own arm after it was trapped by a boulder in a Utah canyon, will close the annual event this year.

Kiera Knightley debuted a new ‘do today (October 5) at the Chanel spring/summer 2011 show during Paris Fashion Week.

“I had my hair bobbed about a month ago, then I had it freshly trimmed again this morning,” she told UK InStyle.

And it wasn’t for a movie role. “I did it for myself,” she said.

Our thoughts on Kiera’s new ‘do?
