She'll get the audience she needs from The Jacket and Domino. The Bond films have become so played out, that I'm afraid it will pigeonhole her as just a pretty face.

I didn't think of that and you don't have to be sarcastic.

Not being sarcastic...sorry if it came off that way.
I just think her career will be better served by the roles she's scheduled. I used to be a really big Bond fan, but I just can't even watch anymore. I turned one on the other night, and watched a little, but it just really started grating on my nerves.

Ok well I have only seen one or two. Not even that, I was 10-12 or something can't remember I just saw a little when my dad watched. And your right about her movies I totaly agree.
To clear this up let's say we let keira decide (wich she will) and stay's by her side.

Agreed.
I think The Jacket will show people, on a much broader scale, the acting ability she displayed in Dr. Zhivago and Pure. She plumbs emotional depths in those films that I've seen very few young actresses get near.
If it were the 1960s, I'd say do the Bond film in a heartbeat.

It's about a little boy's struggle with his mother's heroin addiction. Keira plays a young waitress who befriends the boy, but has a herion problem of her own. The boy's mother straightens out, but Keira's character winds up as a prostitute, turning tricks to pay for her habit.

A good move by Keria, I believe. I don't think she should lower herself to become a Bond Girl.

Eh Yeah, Keira Knightley is abit modest isn't she ? I really don't know what to say on this one she seems to be extremly concerned about her body.

Lol Rach I don't think she would take a step lower in her career if she did consider doing the Bond Role.
