Keira Knightley has revealed she finds stage acting more satisfying than film acting, describing theatre work as “orgasmic”.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star is currently appearing at London’s Comedy Theatre alongside Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss in boarding school drama The Children’s Hour, and told Elle magazine she loves working in the theatre.
Keira said: “Oh, God, the only thing that’s going through my head to describe it is, it’s like sex with an orgasm at the end of it!”
She went on: “Whereas film is like you have sex but you never get the orgasm. A lot of stopping and starting but… oh, I wish I hadn’t said that.”
When she isn’t working the 25-year-old actress has revealed she has banned television from her house, to stop herself becoming glued to the TV.
Keira revealed: “Do you know what it is? It’s that I’m the laziest f**ker in the entire world. It’s true. And stagnation is always really, really imminent. I can literally just sit and not do anything for hours and hours and hours and if there is something completely mind-numbing to do, like surfing the internet or watching c***py TV, I’ll do it and then I’ll feel s**t about myself. So I try to get rid of it.
“A lot of my friends don’t have TVs either. It might be spreading. But what’s nice is that when I do see it, it’s such a treat.
“I did a photoshoot in Cornwall recently and a friend of mine was on the shoot and we literally just sat in my room watching Strictly Come Dancing. We were like, ‘This is amazing.’ We were talking about that for weeks afterwards.”
