You might think that being one of the most beautiful and popular people in the world would make you feel pretty good about yourself, but you would be wrong. To hear Keira Knightley tell it, even though 99.99% percent of people think you're perfect, there's always that 0.01% who don't, and supposedly, those are the people that matter. According to PR Inside, Keira Knightley has begun doubting her looks because the media and press are generally made up of assholes.
I do think I must have a nice face because I'm completely aware my face gets me work. But the problem is that if you happen to be someone who people think of as pretty, you also get so many people whose business it is to comment on your looks.
I've been to photo shoots where the photographer has told me he'd kept my legs out of shot so I don't need to worry about them - that of course makes you worry. Then I've had make-up artists who've told me they need to shade the top of my nose so it won't look so broken. I also got rejected for a job once because someone said I had a funny mouth.
They are all things you start to focus on. You start off thinking you're OK, then you have to go to some event and you remember you have a weird mouth, a broken nose and horrible legs.
I know exactly what Keira Knightley is talking about. Like her, I too have to take it on faith that I'm incredibly beautiful, because my looks have obviously gotten me far in life. And sure, the occasional barb stings a bit, but you've got to look past that and just remember that the millions of dollars make whatever anyone else thinks absolutely worthless. Either that or you can just shut the fuck up.
Ooh... Keira doesn't look happy about that last line.
