Keira Knightly believes that English people are obsessed with spanking and she is no exception. Keira played Sabina Spielrein who has a relationship with her therapist Carl Jung in “A Dangerous Method” and in one scene she had to be spanked on her butt by her co-star Michael Fassbender, who portrayed Jung.
Keira claims she was barely asked about the erotic scenes when promoting the film – which also stars Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud – in any country other than her British homeland, which has led her to deduce her countrymen are fetishists. Keira admitted that she and Michael only got through the spanking scenes by turning to booze. Read more…

The anti-violence PSA starring Keira Knightley that we shared with you earlier this month won’t be airing.

She had to put on a little weight for the role, and she looks lovelier than ever. 3) Matthew Rhys, aka Kevin Walker on “Brothers & Sisters,” plays Dylan Thomas. 4) Cillian Murphy and his baby blues.

The British anti-violence charity Women’s Aid just released this PSA starring Keira Knightley and directed by Joe Wright (“Atonement” and “Pride and Prejudice”). “I wanted to take place in this advert for Women’s Aid because while domestic violence exists in ever section of society, we rarely hear about it,” Knightley said. “We may not think we know someone who has experienced domestic violence, but this does not mean that it is not happening.” Beware, because the two-minute video is disturbing — but then so is domestic violence, and maybe we need to be shocked into realizing what’s goes on in some relationships.
