Stage Fright – 0. Keira Knightley – 1.

keira-knightley-anna-kareninaIt might surprise you that Keira Knightley, who just won the role of the female lead in Paramount’s new Jack Ryan film (opposite Chris Pine), used to suffer from anxiety while filming.

In other words, she had some serious stage fright.

To get rid of it, she started to do more work of the characters she played. That, and also acting on stage. She recently starred in The Children’s Hour with Elizabeth Moss

The actress told Daily Mail that, “It’s easier for me now, and even if I do freeze I know how to deal with it.”

Audiences will get to see how convincing Oscar-nominee Knightley is when Anna Karenina is released November 16.
