Keira Knightley  – BAFTA Life in Pictures

It’s a prestigious gig, for both interviewee and interviewer, so I was delighted to be asked to take the BAFTA audience through Keira’s career – and for her, it really is a life in the movies, starting as she did by asking her Mum for an agent when she was just 4 years old. Keira was on very funny, sweary form as we raced through clips of Bend It Like Beckham, Pride and Prejudice, Atonement, Anna Karenina and Colette, with talk of Love Actually, The Jacket, Pirates and motherhood along the way. “So much talking,” she whispered to me as we finished our 90-minute session. “That’s the idea,” I said. “It’s your fault,” she laughed. “It’s my job,” I shrugged.
