Keira Knightley Covers Harper’s Bazaar December 2016

The beautiful Keira Knightley covers Harper’s Bazaar December 2016 issue and she looks amazing on the cover as usual. I have had my eye on this British actress for years now. I admire her passion and dedication to her career, and I love the fact that she hasn’t aged at all. I wonder what these celebs are drinking. Whatever it is, I want it!

I have seen many of Keira Knightley’s movies. My favourites are Pride & Prejudice, Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean and Atonement. I think she is a talented actress, and I like the fact that she is not everywhere (if that makes sense). I can’t remember the last time I have seen her on a magazine cover, or read her story in the press. She is so elegant, a true English Rose.

In an exclusive interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the 31-year-old talks candidly about gender inequalities, childcare and her family.

Here is a quote from her interview –

On the cost of childcare:

‘One of the things that is so shocking in this country is that childcare is unbelievably expensive. It should be, it’s an amazing thing if you’re good at it. It’s incredibly difficult, it should be well paid. But there is no option for a woman to go back to work unless she’s being paid really, really well and can afford full-time care before [her child can] get into nursery. I think I’ve become unbelievably aware of that and how lucky I’ve been to be able to afford really good childcare, because otherwise it would be at least four years out of my career. I wouldn’t be able to get back to where I’d been if I’d taken four years out. I think that’s the same for most women. And I think that’s really hard.’

I can so relate. We parents all know how expensive childcare can be in the UK. I couldn’t afford to go back to work after having my kids. The childcare fees (a registered nanny is what I wanted) would have been more than salary then so it was pointless. Plus I HATED my job and the long commute. It wasn’t what I trained in, so I didn’t have a proper career to miss.

My decision to not return back to my old job was very easy to make but the journey has been far from easy. I am not Keira Knightley, so the road has been rough but I am happy I went through it because it made me more determined to succeed.
