Keira Knightley: "Teenage Years Should Be Done Privately"
The Begin Again actress isn't keen on her future children taking up acting as a career...
Keira Knightley has revealed the hardships of acting, and why she would ‘totally discourage’ her children pursuing the same career.
Chatting to ELLE magazine the actress spoke about her own experiences when the limelight wasn’t particularly fun, as well as parts of her life she wish were private.
"I would 150 million trillion percent be totally discouraging of [my daughter] doing anything like that," she said.
"I think you need to be, actually, because if the kid is going to do that then they have to do it on their own.”
"I would say teenage years should be done privately. You should be going out and getting unbelievably drunk, getting into ridiculous situations, making mistakes. That's what that time of life is about, and we should do that privately - 1 million trillion zillion percent.”
Although she quickly added that there are no regrets, "Saying that, I don't regret it - I wouldn't do my life any differently.
“But having lived through it... there was a very long time when [interviewers] were all, 'Well, you're a s**t actress and you're anorexic and people hate you', which - for a teenager or somebody in their early 20s - is a very strange thing."
