Princess Keira Knightley

The 22 year old actress is all buzzed up on her career moves. Her latest success and critical acknowledgement in movies like The Duchess and Atonement, she certainly has a long way to go. It would seem that these are the thoughts that are preventing her from tying the know. The 22-year-old actress - who's in a longterm relationship with actor Rupert Friend - has heeded the advice of her mother Sharman MacDonald, who advised her against depending on men for financial and emotional support.

She tells OK! magazine, "I'm from a very liberal upbringing. My mum's like, 'No, you get a job, you support yourself, never look to a man to support you.' I think getting married and having children would be lovely. But not right now or really any time soon."

The Peeping Tom

Despite her young age, she is completely driven and has made some very smart film choices. Every time she seems to slip up, choosing to take on a project of questionable value, she makes a timely comeback with a much better film. She can already boast an impressive array of roles ranging from sci-fi and action-adventure to drama and even comedy.

With so much going for her, there's no telling where she could end up. While it's true that others have walked down a similar path and disappeared from the spotlight all too quickly, with Knightley's looks, unmistakable British charm and, most importantly, her blossoming acting skills, we're ready to bet the bank on her longevity.

More Of Me

Knightley had a role in the British romantic comedy Love Actually, which opened in November 2003. Though charismatic, her performance was overlooked in the crowded A-List cast. Her next film, King Arthur, opened in July 2004 to negative reviews, scoring only thirty one percent at Rotten Tomatoes. In the same month, Knightley was voted by readers of Hello! magazine as the movie industry's most promising teen star. Additionally, Time magazine noted in a 2004 feature that Knightley seemed dedicated to developing herself as a serious actress rather than a film star.

The Twin Effect

Temper tantrums while reading. Now that is a kind of affliction if you would. it seems our pretty Duchess is pretty afflicted by this affliction. British actress Keira Knightley's family and friends have banned her from reading newspapers because she finds it hard to control her temper while leafing through them. The "Atonement" star admits she gets "incredibly angry" when reporters write opinionated news pieces. She tells magazine Elle, "I'm a moody bastard. Actually, I've been banned from reading newspapers because the way they're written angers me so much. If I want an opinion, I'll read the opinion part of the newspaper. I do not want it when I'm trying to get the facts. I get incredibly angry. It really freaks me off. See, I have to calm down about it."

And Knightley becomes particular irate when reading about herself. She adds, "What I hate is that they shove in your face - this is what you want to be. And you think, 'F**k that. I don't want it. Stop telling me I want to look like her. Stop telling me I want that life.' I don't.

Critically Inclined

Everyone has some fears of their own. So does the Duchess star Keira Knightley. She says she can take on any role, but when it comes to comedy, she is terrified.

Keira said: "I am a big fan of 'Blades of Glory'. I don't normally watch films like that and it was great. But getting involved in a Will Ferrell comedy would terrify me.

"I guess I am into darker things at the moment. I think I am quite frightened of comedy. It's never something that I've watched a lot of. I think people can always quote comic films and I've never been able to do that. I can quote you the tragic ones, but not the comic ones.

"I can't watch myself at all. I'm not really interested in trying to look at myself in a film and go, 'Yeah, good job.' I'm incredibly critical. And I like being critical - I like watching it and picking it apart."
