Apparently women hate Keira Knightley. She was recently quoted as saying “If you put yourself in the public forum, it’s what you put yourself up for.” Her words were in response to a note in a British newspaper saying that women bond over a mutual hatred of her.
This is news to me. I love Keira Knightley. She was totally badass in Domino, and she’s fabulous as Elizabeth Swan in the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. I can’t understand why women would hate her. She’s a strong female role model, even refusing to allow her image to be altered to make her breasts appear bigger in movie posters.
This week’s new releases are powerhouse films starring big stars. I Am Legend stars Will Smith as Robert Neville, the last man on Earth. Atonement stars Keira Knightley and James McAvoy as lovers torn apart when he’s wrongfully accused of a crime. Enchanted stars the adorable Amy Adams in her own Cinderella-story, where Prince Charming could be James Marsden or Patrick Dempsey (I’m sold either way).
