Keira Knightley celebrates her birthday today:)
As Keira Knightley turns 32, I bring you 5 interesting facts about the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actress that you may not have known.
She was meant to be named ‘Kiera’ after Kira Ivanova, the Russian ice skater, but her mother misspelt the name when she went to get it registered.
The meaning of her first name is “Dark”.
Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman looked very similar. Once they were in makeup while filming the 1999 film “Star Wars: Episode 1- The Phantom menace”, even their mothers couldn’t tell the two apart.
Her role as the Star Wars movie decoy queen was kept under wraps as it was meant to be a surprise. Right through the promotions, it was maintained that Portman played the roles of the Queen as well as the decoy.
Knightly had auditioned for the 2004 movie “The Phantom of the Opera” for the role of Christine. She said that since she could not sing at all, the experience turned out to be the most embarrassing one of her life.
