Keira Knightley's Love Coach

An article from Parade Magazine:

Keira Knightley's Love Coach

It was love in the library for Keira Knightley as she and co-star James McAvoy shared a moment of passion amongst the books in their new film, Atonement. Keira tried to have a sense of humor revealing, "I think you have to turn sex scenes into a bit of a joke, which James and I did."

I found out that director Joe Wright stepped in to coach the pair. "You won't hear it in the film, but Joe was off-camera shouting instructions about what we should do to each other," Keira says with a laugh.

Wright insists he had no choice. "On the first take, they kind of went at it for 10 seconds and it was over," he remembers. "That's when I started doing the play-by-play. I've done it before with actors because they can get a little uptight getting romantic in front of a camera. I can't say I blame them."

Keira's stunning portrayal of Cecilia, an uptight upper-class Brit who falls …

Keira Knightley is The Duchess

An article and The Duchess' stills from the Daily Mail:

Classy Keira Knightley's Georgian affair









Trouble in paradise: Keira Knightley as Georgiana on the set of The Duchess

Keira Knightley sipped a mug of builder's tea and told me all about a menage a trois she's currently involved in.

The Academy Award-nominated actress was caught up in the hankypanky as part of her portrayal of 18th-century British beauty Lady Georgiana Spencer, who became the Fifth Duchess of Devonshire.

Lady Georgiana was the celebrity star of her day. And the savage satirical caricatures of her were just as intrusive as the paparazzi who stalk Keira today.



Fine dining: Keira is a picture of old world glamour

As far as society was concerned, her marriage at 17 to William, the Fifth Duke of Devonshire, was a splendid alliance. They were seen as prime movers in the Whig aristocracy.

The Duchess befriended Lady Elizabeth Foster, known as Bess, but Bess bedded the Duke - and never left. (The Duke and Bess, by …

Keira Knightley on the cover of Elle Magazine (Dec 2007)

Image
Taken from Just Jared:

Keira Knightley takes the December 2007 cover of Elle Magazine, which hits newsstands nationwide, Tuesday, Nov. 13.

She may look for all the world like an old-school film beauty, but Keira has a spiky, anarchic streak that breaks the mold. In Atonement, she gets to have it both ways. Here are some snippets from Keira’s Elle interview:

On the tabloids: “What I hate is that they shove in your face: this is what you want to be. And you think, f—k that. I don’t want it. Stop telling me I want to look like her. Stop telling me I want that life. I don’t.”

On being moody: “I’m a moody bastard. Actually, I’ve been banned from reading newspapers because the way they’re written angers me so much. If I want an opinion, I’ll read the opinion part of the newspaper. I do not want it when I’m trying to get the facts. I get incredibly angry. It really f—ks me off. See, I have to calm down about it.”

On her sex scene in upcoming movie, “Atonement”: “There was no knob-touching, for…

The British Independent Film Awards:



Best Performance by an Actress in a
British Independent Film

Anne Hathaway for Becoming Jane
Tannishtha Chatterjee for Brick Lane
Sophia Myles for Hallam Foe
Kierston Wareing for It's a Free World...
Judi Dench for Notes on a Scandal (a P&P alumni)


BIFA 2007 takes place on 28 November 2007 at The Roundhouse.Congrats to Anne and Judi Dench!!!


Update (11/29/07): This was held last night and unfortunately, Anne didn't win as Judi Dench won for Notes on a Scandal. But she was at least nominated and of course, a veteran like Judi Dench no doubt wins on this one and rightly so as she was said to be great in this film. Anne's still young and has plenty of time to shine and hopefully, she'll win in other awards too, but what counts the most is that she gets recognized and phrase for her brilliant acting in Becoming Jane.
