Quotes (56)

  • Keira: If only I wasn't an atheist, I could get away with anything. You'd just ask for forgiveness and then you'd be forgiven. It sounds much better than having to live with guilt.

  • Keira: Well, that is a problem. If you're a Republican in America and then you're also sort of shagging anything that moves-I think that's always difficult, isn't it?

  • Keira: Well, there's always the moral question when you're playing real people. Is there any reason to do this, or are you simply exploiting somebody? Is it like dancing over somebody's grave? I suppose in a funny kind of way that it's the same thing with a great fictional character. So many people identify with them. So many people love them in so many different ways. So you don't want to exploit them either, or take the easy way out by judging them. Or, if you are judging them, then you're judging them in a way that the person would judge themselves, and not in kind of an outside, moralistic way.

  • Keira: (on her decision not to star in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie) It was a completely fantastic experience, and it was an amazingly large portion of my life, but I don't think I need to go there again. I think that it's done.

  • Keira: (dispelling rumors of an eating disorder) The rumours could potentially ruin my career because, if I had been ill, there is no way I would be able to do the action movies that I do - I wouldn't be hired.

  • Keira: (describing her dream evening) An Indian takeaway on the sofa - chicken Tikka Jalfrezi and Dhingri Mutter (peas and mushrooms) washed down with a bottle of Cobra beer.

  • Keira: (on co-star Dominic Cooper's unflattering underwear for The Duchess) We are all meant to be supportive of each other in these difficult and embarrassing scenes, but I took one look at him and just lost it ... I couldn't stop laughing because Dominic was trying to be dignified and aloof while looking completely ridiculous.

  • Keira: (on her costumes for "The Duchess") I was literally sewn into these dresses. Because of that, and the hoops, I just couldn't fit into the loo at all; I just had to hang on all day.
