Moth­er­hood gives me per­spec­tive: Keira

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Bri­tish ac­tor Keira Knight­ley (left) feels that moth­er­hood has put every­thing into per­spec­tive and curbed her fear of fail­ing. The 30-yearold, who has five-year-old daugh­ter Edie, with hus­band James Righton, had pre­vi­ously re­jected the lead role in the Broad­way show Therese Raquin but since giv­ing birth to her lit­tle girl, she is not wor­ried about fail­ing any­more. “I think moth­er­hood puts every­thing into per­spec­tive, I re­ally do. I’ve been of­fered (the Therese Raquin part) a bunch of times and I’ve al­ways gone, ‘Well, this is scary and this is re­ally dif­fi­cult’,” she says. She also says she still finds it ter­ri­fy­ing, but can at least think of giv­ing it a go. “I’m grate­ful that I be­came a mother while do­ing some­thing un­be­liev­ably dif­fi­cult, be­cause hon­estly, the worst that could hap­pen is that you fail, but I’ve been lucky,” she said.
