Keira Knightley Talks To MTV
EXCLUSIVE : I want my films to be the focus says the actress after questions about her weight...
Keira Knightley has spoken exclusively to MTV News about the medias obsession with her private life and body image.
When our presenter Shantha Roberts asked if the intrusion was annoying the Atonement star said: Of course I want my films, my work and my career to be the focus.
She continued: Ive spoke to a lot of actors and actresses about it and I dont think that actors have to deal with quite what is put on to actresses. Im not in the media I dont know why that is.
Knightley has been the subject of gossip about her weight as well as her love life and speaking to MTV News said: I dont really understand any of the interest into the other side of it. Maybe thats my fault.
Atonement is out September 7 and the actress is already being tipped for an Oscar her performance.
She told us: Its getting great reviews people like it, thats really exciting. I think if it got awards that would be wicked but if it doesnt then I dont think it devalues the film.
