Keira Knightley has no use for fairy tales. She tells The Edit, “I left them behind. Why should you be told to wait for some f***ing dude to rescue you?” It’s part of the actress’ larger reaction to Hollywood double standards and gender inequality.
In Laggies, Keira Knightley plays a woman in her late twenties who has a bit of a breakdown, briefly abandoning her life to stay with a teenage girl she just met. In real life, the British actress had a less than pleasant experience as a teen.
