Keira Knightley Has Shopping Dilemmas


Keira Knightley Millionaire Sharman MacDonald

Keira Knightley had to get permission from her mother to buy her most expensive item of clothing.

The Millionaire actress owns a sheepskin coat from fashion house Burberry, which cost £2,795, but she could only go through with the purchase after being given the go-ahead by her mum Sharman MacDonald - who told her she had to wear the garment every day.

She told Britain's Elle magazine: "My mum was like, 'You cannot spend that amount of money on a coat,' and I was like, 'No, you're right I can't, I can't'. And then literally it was months and months of thinking about it and thinking, 'I'm not going to do it, I'm not going to do it.'

The Edge Of Love Review


Terrible
In my craft or sullen art Exercised in the still night When only the moon rages And the lovers lie abed

So begins Dylan Thomas' "In my Craft or Sullen Art," a poem about the elusiveness of the inner muse, which resists being easily understood. Though its words never show up in John Maybury's The Edge of Love, an absurdly stylized and utterly feeble supposition on the events that shaped the incomparable Welsh poet in war-stricken London, it points at the very heart of the film's artful damage.

Knightley's Mother Hits Out At Anorexia Rumours


Keira Knightley Sharman MacDonald

Keira Knightley's screenwriter mother Sharman MacDonald has hit out at media rumours suggesting her daughter is suffering from anorexia - comparing the press to "playground bullies".


Knightley has long been dogged by rumours that her waif-like figure is the result of an eating disorder, but she has always denied this - blaming her genes for her naturally svelte figure.


Last year (07), the 23-year-old successfully sued a British tabloid newspaper for publishing an article which accused her of being anorexic and setting a bad example to young girls.


And the star's mother MACdonald can't understand why the media is so obsessed with her daughter's weight.

Knightley Rebels Against Mother's Advice Over Film Role


Keira Knightley Sharman MacDonald

Keira Knightley clashed with her screenwriter mother Sharman MacDonald over their forthcoming movie THE EDGE OF LOVE - because the actress refused to play the part her mum had specifically written for her.


MACdonald told her daughter she had penned the role of Caitlin Thomas just for her in the upcoming film about Welsh poet Dylan Thomas - but the 23-year-old had other ideas.


MACdonald recalls, "I said, 'You're playing Caitlin,' and she said, 'No, I like Vera.'"


As a result, the part of Vera Phillips, one of the Welsh poet's love interests, was transformed - to Knightley's liking.

Lohan To Play Sexy Scenes With Knightley


Lindsay Lohan Keira Knightley Sharman MacDonald

Lindsay Lohan and Keira Knightley are set to light up the screen together in a film about Welsh poet DYLAN THOMAS, in which they play women who are sexually attracted to each other.
The story revolves around the wordsmith and his wife CAITLIN, and a real-life incident in which her childhood friend VERA PHILLIPS, played by Knightley, and her future husband open fire on Thomas' home with a machine gun and a hand grenade.
Lohan is thrilled about working with Knightley, whose character Lohan describes as having a cryptic relationship with her own.
She tells MTV News, "(Keira) is older than me, but she kind of has a mysterious relationship with my lover. And there's somewhat of a lesbian undertone."
Knightley's mother, Sharman MacDonald, wrote the screenplay for the film, which explores the events that led up to the shooting incident and its effect on the Thomas family.

Knightley To Star In Mother's Movie


Keira Knightley Sharman MacDonald John Maybury The Jacket

Keira Knightley is set to star in a new movie written by her playwright mother Sharman MacDonald.
THE BEST TIME OF OUR LIVES is based on a real-life incident in 1945 involving poet DYLAN THOMAS, his wife CAITLIN, and couple VERA PHILLIPS and her husband WILLIAM KILLICK, when Killick was found with a machine gun and a grenade outside Thomas' home.
The Best Time Of Our Lives will be directed by John Maybury, who worked with THE PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star in 2004's The Jacket, and Knightley will play the part of Vera, Thomas' childhood friend.
Excited about the film and the prospect of working with Maybury again, Knightley says, "I'm dying to do it."
MACDonald's script explains the complex background to the event, which left the famous poet and his wife shaken but unhurt.
Filming will begin next spring (07), with the film expected to be released in 2008.

The Winter Guest Review


Weak
Extremely chatty, Alan Rickman's directorial debut is long in the tooth and short in everything else. While the photography of a remote Scottish fishing village is to die for, the lack of anything happening in the plot (involving eight natives from kids to the elderly and their various relationships) -- or even much music -- is a real letdown. Most notably disappointing is a shorn Emma Thompson, who spends the first third of the movie in the bathroom. Bo-ring!
