During an interview, Keira shared the challenges of handling fame as a teenager by saying, “I found it pretty horrific. I’m not an extrovert, so I found that level of scrutiny and that level of fame really hard. You’re in some ways still a child. It was traumatic, but it set up the rest of my career.”


Despite the challenges she faced, Keira Knightley has expressed no regrets about her role in Pirates of the Caribbean. She said, “I’m unbelievably lucky, and my career is in a place where I really enjoy it, and I have a level of fame that’s much less intense. I can deal with it now, and that’s great. But at the time, it was not so great, and it took many years of therapy to figure it out.”
