Knightley Shuns Hollywood For London
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY has blasted Hollywood residents for leading an insular existence, insisting she could never survive in such a stifling environment. The British beauty - who has bagged a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Atonement - has become a prominent name in Hollywood, but couldn't bear to live amongst her movie-obsessed contemporaries. Instead, Knightley has chosen to stay in London - because it offers so much more variety. She tells Cosmopolitan magazine, "It's a funny place - I could never live in Hollywood, because there's nowhere to escape to. You find yourself sitting around a lot and every conversation you have is about the movies. "I think you have to be in a city that has different walks of life that you can observe - and, for me, that's London."
