Keira Knightley graces the July 2014 cover of Glamour magazine and within its pages she dishes on her year-old marriage to James Righton as well as about her upcoming film in which she stars with Mark Ruffalo and The Voice’s Adam Levine—Begin Again.
“When James proposed, I just thought, ‘Well, never done that before.’ It seemed like a fun thing to do,” Knightley said.
The Anna Karenina actress will soon appear once again on the big screen in Begin Again in which she plays the role of Gretta opposite Adam Levine in the role of Dave Kohl, Gretta’s ‘no-good ex-boyfriend.’ Knightley says the Maroon 5 frontman did a great job portraying his ‘less-than-sweet’ character.
“He did play a d***khead very well. Actually, I admire him being so willing,” Keira said. “To play a d***khead is quite a big thing when you are trying to break into film and you want to be likable.”
The romantic comedy is a far cry from the typical films in which Keira Knightley stars. In addition to Anna Karenina she starred iPride and Prejudicen as well as in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
“[W]ith a feel-good film you are always risking going way too cheesy….But maybe I can have a little holiday where I’m not playing a character who is being destroyed,” she said.

It will be fun to see Keira Knightley in a film like Begin Again, and it will be almost as much fun to see Adam Levine play a d**k–well, you know. It’s hard to believe the jovial jokester on The Voice has it in him. Fans won’t have to wait too long to find out, however, or to see Keira Knightley in a romantic comedy. Begin Again hits theaters on June 27th.
What do you suppose that husband of one year will think of his wife’s new role?
