Keira Knightley made her latest stop on the busy promotional trail for Anna Karenina yesterday evening. The film premiered in NYC last week, and Keira also graces the current cover of Allure in support of her latest period piece. Last night, Variety hosted a special screening of the film, featuring an interview with Keira and her director Joe Wright, at Hollywood's historic Grauman's Chinese Theater.
After the movie, Keira took questions from the audience and spoke at length about her conflicted feelings for the character, who leaves her husband — and is thereby forced to leave her young child — after falling in love with another man. Keira admitted that she felt torn about Anna. "That relationship with Vronsky, it is definitely the first time she's had any kind of romance, or the first time that she's ever had an orgasm! And from that point of view, you kind of go, well of course she's going to want that. Of course she's going to get addicted to that."
