I think shame is a deeply difficult thing to live with, and I think she breaks her own moral code. What happens to your own perception of yourself when you break your own moral code? You always make yourself into the heroine, but equally you have self-hatred. She is the heroine and the anti- heroine. She is the perfect narcissist. She hates herself and she loves herself.

A wedding isn’t the only exciting news for Keira Knightley fans this week: The actress is in negotiations to play the female lead in the dark comedy Laggies, according to a rep for the film. The independent production, written by first-timer Andrea Seigel and directed by Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister), tells the story of a young woman who reacts to her boyfriend’s marriage proposal by pretending to go on a business retreat while she actually hunkers down with a new 16-year old friend (Chloë Grace Moretz). Anne Hathaway was originally on board for the lead but had to depart due to scheduling conflicts with her next project, Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar.
Knightley, 28, has a mix of small and big-budget films on her docket, including the Kenneth Branagh-directed Jack Ryan (co-starring Chris Pine) and the indie Can a Song Save Your Life? by writer-director John Carney (Once). The actress married musician James Righton in a small ceremony in France on Saturday. (A rep for Knightley did not immediately reply to a request for comment.)

“I tried college for three months but I was desperately unhappy. I just wanted to perform. I was getting straight A’s but I had no friends and cried every day.”
I'm not sure I can define success. I think if I get to the end of my life
having hurt as few people as possible, I will be happy.
