As her mother alluded to in an interview, Keira Knightley's tired of the paparazzi. She's also miffed about speculation that she has an eating disorder. And she may just give acting because of it, reports the BBC:
"I think I just have to move away or give it up altogether," she said.
"I couldn't have kids in the situation I'm in now. But I could just do something else."
"That's probably what's going to happen. I'm just not so hungry any more. I made a decision very recently that I wanted a life instead."
Well, I for one hope she doesn't quit acting entirely. Having seen her Oscar-nominated performance in Pride and Prejudice, I fully believe Keira's coming into her own as an actress, bringing the playfulness and wit we see in her interviews into her on-screen persona. I would tell her to crap or get off the pot – actors threaten to quit the business all the time, and somehow they just never do – but one can empathize with her feelings.
