Hate your face, people tell Keira Knightley

Los Angeles, Nov 5 (IANS) Actress Keira Knightley says while she gets appreciated for her work, there are also people who freely criticize her performances and even her face.

The 31-year-old, who has daughter Edie, 18 months, with husband James Righton, claims she doesn’t often get complimented in public, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Yesterday I had two really lovely people come up to me in the street and just say how much they like my work, which almost never happens,” Knightley told Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

“The angry ones are very odd… It feels like you’re not meant to be walking down the street doing your shopping. Or they just hate your work, in which case they say, ‘I hate your work’. Or they hate your face, in which case they say, ‘I hate your face’.

“But it’s more like a kind of jokey, ‘Oh God, I’ve always hated you’ Or, ‘I’ve always found your face so annoying.’ I’ve had that quite a few times. Like, ‘Oh sorry! Sorry about that.’ Yeah. So there’s still a couple of those, but not as much as it was,” she added.
