Keira: I’ve had ‘girl crushes’

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

KEIRA Knight­ley says she has had “girl crushes”.

She filmed sev­eral les­bian scenes for her new movie Co­lette and says she was brought up to be­lieve “every sex­u­al­ity is ac­cepted”.

The ac­tress, who is mar­ried to mu­si­cian James Righton, said: “I’ve had girl crushes.

“I’m not say­ing who – my hus­band wouldn’t ap­pre­ci­ate it.

“I never had an ‘a-ha’ mo­ment that ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity was OK – it’s how I’ve al­ways lived.

“My mum used to ar­range marches in Scot­land cam­paign­ing for ho­mo­sex­ual free­dom be­cause Scot­land had rules against it much later than Eng­land.

“At home my brother and I were sur­rounded by the idea that every sex­u­al­ity was ac­cepted.”

Keira, 33, was in­spired to re­turn to work af­ter giv­ing birth to daugh­ter Edie, now three, by her play­wright mum Shar­man Mac­don­ald.

She said: “My mum al­ways worked when I was small and she has a thing about me con­tin­u­ing to work.

“A lot of my sense of self came from be­ing so proud of her for hav­ing that ethic.

“As long as my daugh­ter is cool and do­ing well, and my hus­band’s good and my fam­ily’s good, ev­ery­thing is good.”
