Keira Knightley on Fairytales

Keira Knightley has been my favorite actress for years.  She embodies an extremely talented, beautiful lady and a feminist all in one.  She says awesome things like this:  

"I think it's great that the discussions are finally being allowed to be had [about feminism], as opposed to anybody mentioning feminism and everybody going, 'Oh, fucking shut up.' Somehow, [feminism] became a dirty word. I thought it was really weird for a long time, and I think it's great that we're coming out of that." 
Harper's Bazaar UK February 2014 Issue"

Keira Knightley stands up for issues like Domestic Violence and anorexia.  She isn't afraid to call people out for being to focused on beauty and for going too photoshop heavy (King Arthur!).   


  1. I think it's great that Keira is speaking out ..... people need to be more willing to accept that everyone has a different view and that everyone regardless of gender should be allowed the same rights.

  2. I think it is great Keira Knightley is speaking out about body image. For so many years we have been beaten over the head with what we should look like and that if we don't look like that than we aren't worth anything. We need more people like here.

    1. I agree completely Katherine! Body image is such a big deal from such an early age.

  3. I don't know. Feminism still seems to be a dirty word for many people.
