Keira Knightley Talks Marriage and Motherhood in Vogue

Keira Knightley posed for the cover of Vogue.

Keira Knightley looks dramatic on Vogue's October cover. She was photographed by Mario Testino in Paris for the issue, which hits newsstands on Sept. 25. Keira's been in the spotlight as she promotes Anna Karenina, and was most recently in front of the cameras at the Toronto International Film Festival with costar Jude Law. Keira talked about taking on the complicated character and also shared her excitement for the future with fiancé James Righton. Here's more from Keira Knightley in Vogue:

  • On family changes with her brother's marriage and her upcoming wedding: "My family was just four and very simple. Now all of a sudden it's breaking into different parts. I cannot imagine my mother letting us go."
  • On her future: "I don't want to deny my femininity. But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at."
  • On the roles she chooses: "I think a lot of people want to play heroic characters, and that's it. But I don't find that very compelling. It's far more interesting to think about characters whose actions don't always make sense. The fact is, the opposite is always alive in every decision. And if you look at your own life, and the way you've behaved and thought, it won't always make sense either."
