Knightley: I love girly nights
Keira Knightley has revealed she relies on her girl friends to tell it to her straight.
The 27-year-old Pirates Of The Caribbean star - who is engaged to Klaxons rocker James Righton - told Harper's Bazaar magazine how much she loves a night out with the girls to air her problems.
Keira said: "Women get a really bad rep but they're f***ing excellent. I keep on having moments with groups of girls where I just think, girls are excellent, like really excellent. There is nothing like a friendship group of women, and for girly nights or whatever.
"It's the best f***ing thing in the world. As much as we can be b****y and gossipy and all the rest of it, I think equally if there's something actually really wrong, we talk about it and we actually air it. And if it's an argument, then it's an argument, but we actually have it out, as opposed to that festering thing where suddenly you never speak to somebody ever again."
In her new film Anna Karenina, Keira stars opposite Aaron Johnson as her lover and Jude Law as her older husband. She revealed while she was made to look glamorous for the costume drama, Jude had to be made to look ugly.
"No wonder he kept that hat on... [the make-up and wig] were the worst," she said.
"I'd get to the end of the day, take my make-up and wig off, and I'd look s***. He'd take the make-up and wig off and look f***ing brilliant. And everyone would say, 'Oh yeah! Good-looking man underneath!'."
