Keira Knightley Fought To Overcome Insecurities

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY, the multi-award winning actress, has admitted to having to fight in order to overcome her insecurities, and has only recently begun to believe in herself. The 25-year-old star of 'Atonement' told the UK's OK Magazine that despite appearing in a number of Hollywood lead roles, she has had to deal with self-doubt.
Knightley revealed that she hasn't always believed in her own abilities, saying, "It's taken me time to overcome my own doubts and insecurities. It's been my nature not to want to believe in my own success and that I don't deserve my success. But that's something I've fought to overcome". Despite acting alongside the likes of JOHNNY DEPP in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies, COLIN FIRTH in 'Love Actually', and CLIVE OWEN in 'King Arthur', the British actress admits that she still suffers from nerves before filming scenes. She explains that the "terror" is still present when she acts, but she tries to take the pressure off herself as much as possible.
Knightley is set to star in DAVID CRONENBERG'S new movie, 'A Dangerous Method', which tells the story of the intense relationship between psychiatrist Carl Jung and neurologist Sigmund Freud. The film also stars MICHAEL FASSBENDER and is set for release in 2011.
