LONDON - Hollywood actress Keira Knightley almost gave up acting three years ago because she “wasn’t enjoying” her Hollywood career.
The 25-year-old actress, who shot to fame as a teenager in the 2002 soccer movie “Bend It Like Beckham” and later in the “Pirates of the Caribbean”, admits she decided to turn her back on acting altogether at the age of 22, reports contactmusic.com.
“I think I intended not to work again. I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing and I felt terribly guilty about that. I remember hating the idea that I was in a privileged position and couldn’t see the point of any of it,” she said.
“I had worked solidly since I was 16, till 22, and I had not been on holiday in all of that time. I didn’t know if I was going to go back to acting at all. I think for a long time I thought I wouldn’t,” she added.
