Keira Knightley may be one of the most glamourous women in the world and get to portray heroines on screen, but the star has revealed in a new interview with Vogue that life can be difficult for an actress, and that the things the rest of us take for granted have to be sacrificed.
The 'Anna Karenina' star has revealed that when she's not on camera or on stage she "literally had no life outside acting".
Part of the reason apparently is that she can't go out and do normal things without getting bothered by the press. The actress is now engaged to Klaxons' James Righton, and we think from the way Keira talks in the past tense, that she's a lot happier now.

The star told the magazine: "I literally had no life outside of acting, and I just wanted to go off and not be 'on' all the time, not be photographed, not..."
She continued on describing how even partying at a festival had left her miserable due to endless attention: "I once went to the Glastonbury music festival and was completely surrounded by packs of paparazzi the entire time, so I ended up sitting in a trailer, unable to go out."
We're glad things have perked up for Keira, as now her worries seem to be concentrated on where she'll spend Christmas.
