Keira Knightley on Adam Levine: “He Did Play a D-ckhead Very Well”

The actress says she admires the Maroon 5 frontman for taking on a difficult role to break in to acting because it isn’t easy to play the bad guy. She explained:

“He did play a d-ckhead very well. Actually, I admire him being so willing. To play a d-ckhead is quite a big thing when you are trying to break into film and you want to be likable.”

Opening up on her teenage years and early 20s, Keira says that she found it quite difficult until she learned to just relax and chill out:

“There are those who manage that time of their lives really well—doing a lot of partying and making a lot of mistakes and thinking the world is only there for you, but I was way too introverted, and there was always this sh-tload of photographers, who made it worse. When I hit 25, for some reason I didn’t care anymore—I allowed myself to chill out. Since then, everything’s been amazing.”

She explains that she also suffers from stage fright:

“I have really suffered from stage fright, or actually camera fright. [Because] you are presenting layers and layers and layers of pretending, and it’s not just you but other people in charge of your face or your body or your hair.”
