Keira Knightley was recently interviewed by the Mirror about her movie "Begin Again" in which she plays Greta, a singer who moves to New York with her boyfriend who when he receives a deal with a major record label he leaves her. The singer than meets a down-on-his-luck record producer played by Mark Ruffalo just as she is getting ready to go home.
The beautiful singer, who recently had the media photographers enthralled by her appearance in a floral printed summer dress paired with gold gladiator sandals when she went out for dinner at the London Restaurant Quor, took on the role because it represented a challenge for her as she realized that it would make her go completely out of her comfort zone. She knew she was not a singer but yet she wanted to take on this role because Keira Knightley understands that it would make her dig deep as an actress and the emotions that she would show in this role would connect with audiences because they would be so real and raw.
The superstar actors will make themselves uncomfortable to grow as actors and she definitely made herself uncomfortable. Her husband James Righton plays Keyboards for the group "The Klaxons" and she admitted that his attempts to help her learn to play the guitar which her character does in the movie did not go well and considers it a miracle that they are still married after the experience.
Some actors enjoy being comfortable but not Keira Knightley and it is probably why she is so popular with fans and critics. She admits to having no musical talent which made singing and playing the guitar a challenge and she had to deal with a new way of filming for her as much of "Begin Again" was improvised which was something she had never done before.
She is an actress and model who is considered one of the most talented leading ladies in Hollywood and that reputation will not be diminished by "Begin Again". She is receiving much critical acclaim for her performance in the movie which is not a surprise considering her willingness to make herself vulnerable to play the part, something that only the most committed and talented actors will do which is a group to which she belongs.
