Keira Knightley: I’m stupidly sensitive


Even though she’s been an actress since childhood, Keira Knightley admits she still gets upset over criticism. However, she has learned how to deal with it.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: ”I’m stupidly sensitive. It’s ridiculous to have got 10 years on in my career and find that some things still hurt as much. I don’t know if it’s ego. I do tend to get back up quite quickly after I’ve been hit down and then I try to forge ahead as much as possible.”

As much as bad reviews can hurt, Keira is no longer affected by them as she used to be because she always tries to do her best.

keiraShe explained: ”Film is such a strange magical thing that sometimes things don’t come together. You have to go, ‘It’s out of my hands.’ If it doesn’t work, I’m proud because that day I felt like s**t, I still managed to play this incredibly important scene and I don’t feel I completely f***ed it up.

”You give months of your time to make a movie and you don’t have a life outside it. So if you only think it’s worth it if it’s critically well received, then you’ll end up spending an awful amount of time incredibly disappointed.”
