KEIRA KNIGHTLEY has blasted Hollywood residents for leading an insular
existence, insisting she could never survive in such a stifling environment.
The British beauty – who has bagged a Golden Globe nomination for her
performance in Atonement – has become a prominent name in Hollywood, but
couldn’t bear to live amongst her movie-obsessed contemporaries.
Instead, Knightley has chosen to stay in London – because it offers so much
She tells Cosmopolitan magazine, “It’s a funny place – I could never live in
Hollywood, because there’s nowhere to escape to. You find yourself sitting
around a lot and every conversation you have is about the movies.
“I think you have to be in a city that has different walks of life that you
can observe – and, for me, that’s London.”
