Keira Knightley generated herself some additional exposure by covering the October 2012 issue of Vogue magazine.
With her new film ‘Anna Karenina‘ hitting theaters for a limited on November 16th, the 27-year-old actress posed for famed photographer Mario Testino and opened up about her on-screen character in the film.
On her character Anna Karenina: “She is both a villain and a heroine. She can be incredibly vain and manipulative. She is somebody who breaks her own moral code, and yet the shame and disgust she lives with because of that make her fascinating.”
On being a feminist: “I remember doing interviews, and people would ask, as if it was a joke, ‘So you mean you are a feminist?’ As though feminism couldn’t be discussed unless we were making fun of it. I don’t want to deny my femininity, but would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men without being sneered at.”
