She'll next be seen in the September release of Joe Wright's Anna Karenina and Oscar winning actress Keira Knightley who is famed for the likes of Atonement, The Duchess and the Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy has said that she now knows how to deal with stage fright.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, the newly engaged Seeking a Friend for the End of the World babe admitted that she used to suffer from crippling nerves on film sets but that the time she has spent away from films has helped her to counter her problem and said "I discovered that a lot of what I was suffering from on film sets was stage fright. It's easier for me now, and even if I do freeze, I know how to deal with it."
Knightley is currently filming John Carney's drama Can a Song Save Your Life? with Hailee Steinfeld and speaking about her character in the forthcoming Tolstoy adaptation she added "I found her a challenging person. I wanted to shake her and tell her to pull herself together.
She's a wonderful character, but very strange and complex."
Anna Karenina comes to cinemas on September 7 and features the stellar cast of Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Saoirse Ronan, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Olivia Williams and Andrea Riseborough.
