Keira Knightley thinks fame is a strange thingDecember 7th, 2007 - 1:00 pm ICT by admin
New York , Dec7 (ANI): The Pirates Of The Caribbean star Keira Knightley is grabbing the most sumptuous roles in Hollywood but still thinks that fame is strange.
The 22-year-old star is on her way to superstardom but still manages to keep a firm head on her shoulders.
“I think fame is a very strange thing. You learn to find ways around it, as in any job. You have to have a route to self-preservation,” The New York Post quoted Knightley, as saying.
“My ambition hasn’t changed, she added.
22-year-old Knightley also revealed that she never liked being a teenager.
“I never felt comfortable being in a group of giggly girls … So I suppose I never really wanted to explore it, whereas I did want to be a woman, she said.
Although young, Knightley’s right kind of maturity has only reaped her benefits.
“I think Im in an incredibly fortunate position, because I actually get offered amazing roles and the opportunity to work with extraordinary people. If you become an actor, then thats what you want, said the Oscar nominated star.
Knightley, named as the new Period Queen in Hollywood is taking the tag in her stride.
“Im fascinated by tragedies or dramas. Its the drama queen in me. I want to explore them, partly because I dont want to explore them in my real life, I guess, she said.
However, the star denies being a role model and says that there shouldnt be a definite way in which actors should carry themselves.
“I dont believe in role models. I dont believe that any person can be put up there as being better than any other person. Personally, I think I have the right to make as many mistakes as I like without having to feel guilty about a young girl going, ‘Wow, youre making that mistake, so should I.’ People are cleverer than that, she said.
