Keira Knightley stars as the cover girl of British Harper's Bazaar
Wearing colourful Chanel dresses
On both covers, shot by Alexi Lubomirski, Knightley poses in colourful dresses from the Chanel Spring/Summer 2014 collection. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar UK, the actress speaks of feminism, her short stint with Twitter and how to survive as a female-actress in a male-dominated industry. Here we share with you a few interesting quotes from the interview:
Speaking of feminism: "I think it's great that the discussions are finally being allowed to be had [about feminism], as opposed to anybody mentioning feminism and everybody going, 'Oh, no, shut up,'" says Keira. "Somehow, it [feminism] became a dirty word. I thought it was really weird for a long time, and I think it's great that we're coming out of that."
When asked of her [short lived] relationship with Twitter: "It made me feel a little bit like being in a school playground and not being popular and standing on the sidelines kind of going, 'Argh.'"
On surviving in an industry dominated by men: "I go to work at 5.30 in the morning; I wouldn't get back probably until nine o'clock at night. Most of the guys that I talk to - and I've spoken to a lot of guys about it - they say [whispers], 'My wife does everything.' You think, 'Why wasn't I thinking about this five years ago?'"
