Keira: Why I feel different
Actress Keira Knightley has revealed that when she was a child she thought she’d grow up to be a man.
Keira, 33, said: “I thought I was going to be a man when I grew up because of the playground at school.
“I could see the girls were the ones with the power there, so I’d look at the adult world and think, ‘Clearly little girls turn into men!’
“Of course I later found out they don’t, but I’ve always understood that feeling of not fitting into the projected form of femininity. I still don’t now.”
