Where You’ve Seen Her: Rare for most actresses, Keira Knightley can rock the period piece in films like Pride and Prejudice, The Duchess, and Atonement, then turn around and kick your ass as a rum-guzzling pirate of the Caribbean, or a model with a machine gun in Domino. Don’t you wish you could just clone her and harvest her organs? Well, that’s weird, but you’re in luck! Check out Don’t Let Me Go, Keira’s latest flick about three lifelong friends forced to confront a haunting reality, out on DVD today.
And You Thought Theatre Was Boring: "Oh, God, the only thing that's going through my head to describe [the theatre] is it's like sex with an orgasm at the end of it! Whereas film is like you have sex, but you never get the orgasm. A lot of stopping and starting... It's the completion of the story, the full arc." –Elle U.K.
