Keira Knightley For Flare December 2012

Keira Knightley covers Flare magazine wearing a winter white dress for their December cover which is their biggest issue of 2012.

The British actress talks about true love, her latest movie and never being caught with her guard down.

On the suggestion that she’s perfectly masterminded her career: “I love that that’s what it looks like, that’s f*cking excellent.”

On love—and her upcoming film, Anna Karenina: “Tom Stoppard [who wrote the screenplay] said at the beginning [that] this is a thesis on love, and I said ‘Ummm. Er. Okay.’ And I think he’s quite right. Not just the sparkly bit that we’re sold, the fun, the hopefully great sex, but it’s also looking at the loneliness, the pain, the jealous madness that is all a part of that.”

On playing Anna: “There are aspects of her that I don’t like. Then you go: Am I any better? I am duplicitous and manipulative and all those things. Hopefully that doesn’t define me, but they are parts of my personality.”

On growing up in the public eye: “When I was very young, I was hounded by these hideous men. What they wanted was the picture of me falling out of the club. They weren’t going to get that out of me. No, I chose very, very deliberately not to, because I couldn’t bear the idea of giving in to them. It takes a stubbornness.”

    Bizarre photograph–her head is way too big for her body and at an impossible angle. Bad photoshop.

    Don’t like it. Bad posture, and her bodice part looks awkward.

    Between the Taylor Momsen eyes, the boyish haircut, the weird angle her body’s twisted into, and the overall “wrinkliness” of the dress, this might be one of the worst magazine covers I’ve ever seen. I know Keira can look a lot better than this, just look at her American Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar UK covers.

    i actually like it! i love keira with shorter hair. and i like seeign her in a modern dress.
    i’m intrigued by the line on the bottom, “perks of being a wallflower in a peacock dress”! what’s that all about ?!

      Yes! I immediately had the feeling that this pic wasn’t new to me… I had loved that photoshoot back then

    Not the best shot of Keira. Her Vogue shoot was 10x better.

    I thought it was Rose Byrne at first sight…
