Keira To Take A Breakby Contributor | 08 February 2007
British actress Keira Knightley has told media that she has decided to take a break.
The actress, who has been working on back to back films has said in an interview that it is time that she took a rest. Speaking to Hello magazine she said that said that she now wants to get some of her life back.
"It's my instinct to think 'I have to say yes or there won't be another job'," she told the magazine.
"But I've been working on films back to back for the past few years and I need a break. I think I just need to take time out to get a bit more of my own life back."
She said she will be taking some time out even if it means that her career may suffer as a result. The Pirates of the Caribbean actress also spoke to the magazine about the pressure that she is constantly under because of her looks.
Keira said that while she knows she has a "nice face" there are many people in the industry who are constantly commenting about her looks.
"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," she said.
Keira says that these little comments end up making her feel self-conscious about her looks.
