I second deviljet.

I like Keira, and I enjoy watching her, but honestly and to put it lightly, she's a dime a dozen. I've seen just as many beautiful and stunning looking actresses these days, and some that can probably act just as well as she can. But I predict Keira will be around for awhile, and I don't think of her as "just another teen actor". She's past that, I believe, and I think she has more potential than other actors her age. Did I just contradict myself?

But I suppose her choices of movies is the most interesting to me. Like every actor, she'll make more bad ones, then she'll bounce back with a good one - a blockbuster.

I don't really think there is anything unique about her. But maybe there is and I just can't think of it right now.

She's not Audrey Hepburn or Natalie Portman for example.

However Keira is very very pretty, and I like that.

Why ?

SHe is unique for me because she's the only one actress who makes me quiver when I see her acting. She's natural, very natural. She doesn't need to do her's hair before being photographied. For her, it doesn't matter if she makes faces in front of the camera. That's why I like her and I admire her. She doesn't worry about what others thinks. She's 100% natural.

Ah, there it is. She's only two years older than me, which is not bad.

The fact that she's probably the only Keira Knightley in the world? That in itself makes her unique.

Does uniqueness make anyone compelling? I'm unique. You're unique. What's so compelling about you or me? Though it's hard to believe, many people have worked just as hard, if not harder, than Keira, but she has had her run of luck. She's a pretty good actress (though she's a-ways to go before reaching the talents of Portman or Johansson), and she's rather attractive, for being pencil-thin. But 'pretty good', pencil-thin, 'rather attractive' actresses can be found in your local supermarket, browsing through the produce section.

I just stick around here, because I think some of the members are more compelling than Keira herself. But that's probably because I've never spoken to nor met Keira.

She's pretty, she can act (sometimes) and she seems extremely down-to-earth. 'Nuff said.

Just that she is the most amazing woman I have ever seen. And how she is only four years older than I am helps. I also love the movies she does. Star Wars, Pirates of the Carribeam, and King Arthur are some of my favorite movies.

"I’d love to say yes, I’ve worked really hard and I completely deserve it," she says of the current accolades. "I don’t deserve it. I’ve worked hard because I’ve been allowed to work hard. Acting isn’t like being a musician or an artist. If you don’t get paid work as an artist, you can still paint. If you don’t get paid work as a musician, you can still make music. If you don’t get work as an actor, you can’t really act. You need the work to be given to you. So, yeah, I’m very aware of how fortunate I am."

Yeah... that's why I like her. Her head doesn't seem to be stuck up her own ass.

I guess the reason i find her so compelling is that she acts as a focus of my affection, she is an exact copy (both in looks, build, smile and mannerisms), you could even think she is a clone of a very dear and close friend of mine to which i could not possibly show these affections, not without fear of reprisals.

There i said it, that feels good.
