Sometimes being a celebrity is dangerous, just ask Keira Knightley.
In an interview with Chanel’s new cultural podcast, Chanel Connects, which premiered this week, the Pirates of the Caribbean described a past incident when paparazzi tried dangerously to snap pictures of her by forcing a car accident.
“It’s brutal for young women in this industry,” said the Oscar nominee. “To be followed around the clock by packs of up to 30 men with their lenses through my windows and called a whore every time I left the house to provoke a reaction because the pictures were worth more if I was crying to be forced off the street because they suddenly found out there was a lot of money to be made in car accidents. So you would have people with cameras trying to force your car off the street. “
Keira, 35, looks back on the earlier years of her career and shares two children with her husband James Righton– said that the time in her life was “brutal” and she is “incredibly proud” to have survived it.
