i've got facts to post just to keep fans undated on the queen of this forum Miss Keira Knightly :) ... any other members who have more facts or stuff they would like to keep members up on KK post away till ur hearts content... :p

•At three, Keira was asking her parents for an agent, but had to wait until she was nine to make her film debut in A Village Affair (1994)

•Her breakthrough came in 1999, as Sabe, Decoy Queen to Natalie Portman’s Queen Amidala in Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.

•Keira supports West Ham united in the English First Division

We know :D

But I'd hardly call her role as Sabé her breakthrough role.

As for West Ham, They're not in the first division. It is called the Coca-Cola League Championship now :D

She's from Teddington Middlesex, not Richmond as many believe...Cliff/Ducky will explain the difference if you're confused
She's battled and overcome dyslexia
The coach who coached her for BILB said she was more naturally talented than Michael Owen, an England International


That'll do for now :)

I was thinking Bend it Like Beckham would be counted as her breakthrough role. I mean most people thought it was Natalie Portman anyway in Star Wars.

Keira Knightley's mother has been going everywhere with her daughter, after hearing someone may be stalking the Pirates of the Carribean star.

Keira has been taking a break from filming to spend some time with her parents and brother, but the break hasn't been all that relaxing for the film star. Her mother has been by her side everytime she leaves her London family home.

Her mother is so worried that she accompanies her whenever she goes out and, on their return, makes sure the coast is clear while Keira waits around the corner.

Keira said: "This nutter has been hanging around outside my house. It has been really alarming. My mother has been so upset and I just hate it."

Well, 5'7 or 1.70 m is not that tall. I would rather call it a normal average size. For me a girl is tall when she's like 1.73 till 1.80.

Exactly. I was just about to post the same thing. She does look very tall in BILB though, I thought she was around 6 feet before I found out the truth.

Interesting little fact - the handbag that Keira has been carrying around with her lately (the kind of big reddish orange one with lots of buckles) is a Jimmy Choo bag, thus proving her love for that brand.

Doesn't that contradict her techological phobia, needing a PC to upload to the IPod?

PC=computer, stop reiterating my thought process

Hazzle
06-07-2004, 01:56 AM
Well...someone else could upload it for her :p. I mean I could quite imagine her asking her brother to do it for her...he's a musician and a former sound engineer so he a) knows his music and could put on some new stuff for her to listen to and b) he knows how to use a PC, I should think...as a sound engineer he'd have to use far more complex equipment I should think.

I mean I always suspected her alledged love or Nirvana must've come from her brother...she'd have been about...9 when Kurt died? Yeah...1994...only just 9...I doubt she'd have been into it...he on the other hand would've been...17 or so when Kurt died it'd have fit his time a lot more :)

Oh...and her mum uses a computer...and supposedly uses the internet...so I'd have thought someone else could do it for her if she asked :)

Haz, if Caleb was 17 when Kurt died, that'd make him nearly 30 now and I'm almost positive he's only a few years older than Keira (he's about 25 now, I think). I could be wrong, though.

As for her liking Eminem and Nirvana, me thinks this was just some random fan's wishful thinking/creation. I've never read anything where she's said that. I did read an article once where it (or maybe she, herself ... I can't remember) mentions that she's fond of Brit rockers Electric Six.

She actally has said several times that she knows nothing about popular music and that all her friends have to keep her up on it all. I really don't care who she's into ... as long as it's rock and roll. :p

Slight mistake on my part (though you make a big one yourself in that comment...Kurt only died 10 years ago...not 13).

Yeah, I did the maths wrong...I remembered that the age gap was 6 years same as me and my sister) and I remembered one was 4 years away from me, the other 2...got it muddled.

Err...and it wouldn't make him 30...because it was 1994...it was the 10th anniversary this year...trust me...I know...he would've been 2 years older than I was at the time (13) so that'd make him 15...which actually just strengthens my case :)

Well I don't actually wear women's clothes (largely as I think they might be a tad uncomfortable) but I'm perfecly happy to joke about wearing them, or joke about being gay, as I'm comfortable with my sexuality and manliness...but that's off-topic :)

On that note, on Leno she said, breast fillets (you know those thingys they use to get cleavage) are great, along with breast shadowing. No point getting implants when you can get those :P
