Keira Knightley reallllly doesn’t like the paparazzi. No celebrity really likes the paparazzi, but it seems like Keira has a special hatred towards them. She feels that it’s b.s when people say that it helps ones career and she manages to bring up Paris Hilton as an example.
She says, “I know that I am very lucky, but sometimes the intrusion is a very predatory force. When you are leaving your front door and paparazzi who are a lot bigger than you are shouting, ‘You’re a whore’ to try and make you cry - that obviously is not great. I am told by a lot of the paparazzi who follow me that they are helping my career but, by that logic, Paris Hilton should be the biggest box-office catch in the world and she isn’t.”
She adds “It is not good for any actor when your life becomes the story because, in your acting work, you are trying to tell a different story. What’s more, there is actual proof that if actors get too much attention, people just don’t go and see the film. That sort of over-exposure is something to be wary of.”
Paris Hilton is not such a good example because the girl has made this empire because the paparazzi started taking her pic. A good example would be Sienna Miller whose private life has become public and it really has negatively impacted her career.
