Keira Knightley says every woman she knows has been harassed

The Guardian, London
Keira Knightley says every woman she knows has been harassed

Keira Knightley has spoken about how sexual harassment is such a big problem she “literally” does not know any woman who has not been subjected to it, including herself.

The British actor said that, from groping to being flashed, “everybody” has been harassed in some way.

Speaking in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, which goes on sale on Wednesday, the 36-year-old said the situation was “fucking depressing”.

In response to a question about whether she had experienced harassment, she said: “Yes! I mean, everybody has. Literally, I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been in some way, whether it’s being flashed at, or groped, or some guy saying they’re going to slit your throat, or punching you in the face, or whatever it is, everybody has.

“It was when women started listing all the precautions they take when they walk home to make sure they’re safe, and I thought, ‘I do every single one of them, and I don’t even think about it.’”

Knightley has previously talked about her discomfort shooting intimate scenes and how women are expected to either be flirty or maternal. “If I was making a story that was about that journey of motherhood and body acceptance, I feel like, I’m sorry, but that would have to be with a female filmmaker,” she said in January. “I don’t have an absolute ban, but I kind of do with men.”

In her latest interview, the mother of two, who reportedly pulled out of period drama The Essex Serpent over pandemic childcare concerns, also told how she kept her family’s spirits up during lockdown.

She said: “We have a trampoline in our garden, and we decided we were only allowed to wear dresses on it. I put on red lipstick every day, and every bit of Chanel that I have in my cupboard, and my daughter Edie had Chanel ribbons plaited into her hair and fairy wings.
