From the wee age of three, Keira Christina Knightly (born March 26, 1985) knew she wanted to be in pictures. She begged her mother for an agent, and finally, at the age of six, she got one as a reward for studying hard.
The first time I saw her on screen was in the 2003 movie Bend It Like Beckham. I thought she was lovely, and that short hair — so spunky!
Since then, Keira’s star has steadily risen. She’s appeared in a host of blockbusters like Pirates of the Caribbean (yargh, mateys!) with my man Johnny Depp…
… and been up for some big awards already, earning Best Actress nominations from the Academy Awards and Golden Globes for her roles in Pride and Prejudice and Atonement.
Throughout her career Keira’s changed her hair often, going from short to long and dark to light. She always looks distinctive and sassy with short hair, but I dig those long locks, too.
