Keira Knightley: I trampolined every day in my Chanel and red lipstick during lockdown for my daughters
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.
“I thought, ‘What is the point of these lovely things sitting in the wardrobe when it feels quite apocalyptic and scary outside?’ It felt so important to be really happy for the kids.”
She has two children, Edie and Delilah, with her husband, James Righton, a musician and former member of the band Klaxons.

On the one hand, she's right. On the other, I kind of want to kick her in the cunt bone.

Why is The Guardian giving publicity to this skeleton-bodied woman?

Did Chanel pay her for this name drop?

If only she had spent the time instead learning how to act.

the last time i saw a pic of her, she was no longer scary skinny. I don't know if was post-baby weight though. this is a pic from last March and she actually has a fuller face.

A fuller face, a concave face with two necessary, artfully-draped swags of brown hair to lessen its width.

She must be a spokesperson for Chanel; I mean, I guess it could be worse, but she just seems insufferable

She's a Chanel house ambassador, as is the appalling Kristen Stewart.

If you’re a British lesbian, you’re forced to give her the nostalgia pass for BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM. It’s just an unspoken rule.
So culturally I am not able to ever bring myself to completely hate her, shameless as this silly embarrassing plug is and limited as her skills are.

Part of me will always admire her for never getting those tiny tits enlarged.

We'd all trampoline, garden and walk the dog in our Chanel if the company kept giving us clothes for free.
Her point about countering the bleakness of the pandemic is good though. A number of my neighbours put up some of their Christmas lights, just a line or two round the fence or the house front, to put some cheer in the neighbourhood.

I quite like Keira.
She’s a shit actress & only manages to be beautiful sometimes (from a certain angle when she’s not smiling) but she’s alsays struck me as reasonably grounded and authentic.
I don’t think she has an eating disorder...her legs are quite fat. She gives the appearance of being skinny because she has no tits and her face is angular.

R20 I have an old friend from school shaped like Keira. Tall and skinny from a distance, and thin in the face and chest, but when you get up close she’s a slim average-height pear with thunder thighs and a wide but flat ass. She also has size 9 feet.

These bitches keep thousands of PR grunts employed and off the dole. For that we should be grateful.

I wish someone would give all these wealthy celebrities who want to talk about their daily lives on social media little tutorials on how not to seem so grotesquely privileged and out of touch. I think they genuinely forget after a while their middle-class fans do not keep Chanel outfits in their closets.
|by Anonymous||reply 24||06/08/2021|
Those Chanel items are already in her closet, she paid for them with her own money and might as well just throw them on and jump around on her trampoline. Are people really triggered by her statement?
|by Anonymous||reply 25||06/08/2021|
Don’t think about jumping around in my collection bitch!

I don’t know. Ever since she said she’d banned Disney films for her kids because they’re sexist I feel she takes herself too seriously. If anything she should watch them with her kids and if necessary explain to them what’s wrong with them. But banning them just seems cruel.

The whole thing is a kind of a tone deaf "let them eat cake" kind of comment, but as others have noted, it was likely for the benefit of her Chanel overlords. I remember reading quote from her that she's the breadwinner, so she probably has to keep them happy to keep the rest of the family in that nice country house.

Her kids will probably have fond memories of that trampoline later in their lives.

She actually seems to raise her children and spend time with them. By a celebrity actor yardstick, that makes her Mum Of The Year every year.

If I recall correctly, when Catherine Denueve was the face of Chanel she also did some playful tie-in trampolining.

I am not sure why she has that Butter Wouldn’t Melt attitude to sex scenes as she has spent the last 20 year showing off her mosquito bites.

All of you saying that she can’t act: mostly this is a true statement but I loved her character in Atonement.

[quote]And then there was the time Righton, 37, decided that the family should eat only vegetables “sourced from regenerative farms” during the UK’s second lockdown, leading to some serious tension with his spouse. “I’m not a big root-veg fan, and in these regenerative boxes we were getting — this is so middle-class, I can’t bear it — there were four celeriac,” Knightley said. “And I hate celeriac! I didn’t realize I could feel so strongly about a vegetable…”
I didn't think I could love her more than I already do.

Sweetie, you’re from Richmond and trampoline in the free Chanel you receive modelling. No one is more bourgeois than you.

She looks like she put on some weight in that photo, and it suits her. She can douse herself with all the Chanel she likes but yes, it's a tad insensitive. For those who don't live in a world where maids are forced to sign documents keeping mum about whatever they see in your mansion. None of these overrated nonsensical celebrities live in the real world, so whatever flies out of their mouth is basically to advertise themselves or products they are paid to endorse.
