You wouldn't believe it, but I've just become a Keira-maniac since the last two days that I've downloaded some of her wallpapers.
As far as I can tell, what I love about Keira is that she does not only have a pretty face, but she is a true star, if you know what I mean, no scandals, and each film that she acted in always have paved her way of success. Remarkable and impressive, yes. She is also smart too, for not being stuck in the common way of a Hollywood female star (Paris Hilton is an example), just being her own self, a decent and righteous woman. I think it's the British way to do. If you've got all what I've bloody got to say, that's good.
Just except for one thing that she's a woman and I'm a man so she can only be my favourite celebrity, not my idol, for idol is someone who you want to be like in the future. I've already sworn my loyalty to Michael Learns To Rock, a Danish pop band.

Who says she's being herself? People pay publicists a lot of money to create an image for themselves, and this could be one.

Incidentally Keira's public persona is anything but "righteous".

Paris Hilton, a "Hollywood female star"??? She starred in a sex video and then was cheered when she was murdered in the House Of Wax. Nearly any celebrity compared to her becomes gold. Anyway, good for you for liking KK, mm.

Does Michael Learns To Rock still exist?

Keira is my idol. I don't want to be her, but I do admire her beauty and fashion sense.

fashion sense? haha apparently you haven't seen the articles in which keira was fugged.

i'll give you beauty though, there's no denying that one. (although i would say that in photoshoots its the clothes that make you sexy, photographers can do miracles these days.)

What's funny is, I've only recently in the past week become obsessed with Keira,lol! Surprisingly, I just watched Pirates of the Carribean 1, and I liked the movie...but when I watched the 2nd movie, I was like Keira's a cool actress! And soon, she became my favorite when I read more about her and stuff. And I'm getting the Pride & Prejudice DVD she filmed in this weekend :D

well in that case, your username is erroneous, if you have only just become a "Keira Fan" then you cant have been a Keira fan forever... :p

hreh, I'm in one of those moods. expect more semantic arguments soon.

hmm... how did I become a Keira fan? I'm no maniac. Sometimes I can't spell her name right but I suppose it's just been a growing interest. I liked her in Bend it like Beckham when it came out. Liked her in Pirates 1. Liked Domino (mum didn't like it that she left the room in the first half hour), I'm indifferent towards Pride and Prejudice. Loved Pirates 2. And I've seen two interviews with her. She's rather cool. I dunno. I suppose I just think she has pizzazz.

I actually really disliked her until I saw King Arther.

I'm not obsessed, though I was at one point, but that was only because she was so cute and beautiful and funny. I like her now. Not love, but like. I also enjoy insulting her when there are rabid fanboys around just to get reactions out of them.

Haha. Yeah insulting any celebrity around obsessed fans is fun.... until they rip you to shreds, in which case you should probably start running. Fast. Sprinting.

Yes, but the obsessed fan often has problems with their argument. It's usually something like "Because they're the fucking greatest, lay off!". So the average fan will most likely win.

oh but I mean, literally rip you to shreds. With their bare hands. It may even vary with which movie they like best. Bend it like Beckham and they'll attack you with soccer balls, Pirates of the Caribbean and they'll attack you with a cutlass, Domino and they'll attack you with a machine gun.

This is why I'm waiting for 'Nymphomaniac' starring Keira Knightley, so I can insult her, and be set upon by nubile female fans who will attack me with sex.

Heh. At both Cliff and Seydel. Nice to see a newcomer with a sense of humour too.

Of course you're still both the "c" word that I'm no longer allowed to say.

Do you have lots of nubile female fans? Otherwise, I'd rather not.

Lol, my username doesn't really mean I was her fan forever, it simply means I'm going to be a fan forever =p Well...it depends, I'm simply prediciting the future based on how I think now o.o; But as time goes by, people simply go from obsessed fan to just a supportive fan. It takes time :)

I saw pirates 2 last night. instantly fell in love with Keira. This woman is gorgeous. Not in a sexual, perverted way....just her beauty struck me. I have seen her before in other movies...thought she was pretty...but for some reason now...i think shes absolutley stunning. I have never been like this about any celeb....actually use to make fun of people that were like that.

This was posted by "thefulleffect" in a topic that was closed and I thought it fell under this topic.

Anyway back to the point; everything in that quote applies to me too, it looks as if I could have wrote that. Especially the part about not feeling that way about any other celeb. For some reason I have become a Keira Knightley addict, being interested in anything she's apart of and searching the net for videos, photos, etc. of her. It's quite depressing and it's been going on for about a week. It's almost like a disease or sickness. I Hope I get over it sooner than later. I thought it might help to just talk about it on this forum because I wouldn't talk about to anyone I actually knew, cause they would just think it was stupid. From looking on this forum I'm sure there are so many that feel the same way, which is sad. Anyway just my 2 cents; and this is my 1st post, so I probably broke a rule(I've noticed yall are nazzis about this).

Meh you'll be fine. Although the majority of people here may feel the same way, most of those are newer members, generally demonstrating newer fans. A lot of the people who've been here longer went through a phase like that, got over it, and now are merely mildly interested in Miss Knightley. I can only speak for myself but I went through a phase where I'd buy every magazine she was in, asked for the POTC DVD for Christmas (and yet I never ask for DVDs for presents) and would watch anything she was in, be it a brief TV appearance or her more obscure movie work.

Now I couldn't give a shit. Still not seen DMC, probably won't, because it doesn't have anything to suggest it'll be any good and most people I know have slagged it off something rotten. If POTC 3 is any good I'll probably watch DMC then so as to avoid continuity confusion but other than that, I really don't care. I don't look at magazine articles or look out for Keira interviews. She's just another celebrity in the celebrity world to me now. I only come here for the people.

Anyway just my 2 cents; and this is my 1st post, so I probably broke a rule(I've noticed yall are nazzis about this).

Nope, no rules broken. We prefer the term "dictators" :p (and it's Nazis anyway).

Welcome to KKW, hope you have fun, yadda yadda and all that jazz.

I went through a miserable, obsessive phase, as well, and it lasted several months....
My attitude seems to have changed somewhat recently -- especially since I got a real girlfriend. :icon_surp Being distracted by real life will make you realise that there's nothing you can do to connect with, or affect, Keira K in any way, and caring too much is fucking pointless. Not to mention that paying extra close attention to ANY given celebrity for a long enough period will only make you begin to understand that she is not perfect, and can even be kind of irritating sometimes.

I now look at Keira K in much the same way that a casual sports fan might look at his favorite football team. I root for her, and take an interest in what she does; but it's not an obsessive adoration. I find the game of being a celebrity (while also trying to become a skilled performer, on an artistic level) interesting, and I had never thought about it before becoming a Knightley fan. Watching her career makes for a decent spectator sport. Will she make the right choices? DOES she have what it takes??? Stay tuned to find out!

Do I still like her? Of course. Do I LOVE her? Nah, that's stupid (although six months ago I would have said otherwise). I never even MET the chick. I wish her well, though.

Blegh
