Keira Knightley - Keira Knightley: 'Feminism In Hollywood Has A Long Way To Go'

by WENN | 29 December 2013

Keira Knightley is convinced women in the movie industry will continue to face an up-hill battle in the fight for gender equality for a long time to come, because leading female roles are still "pretty few and far between".

The actress became a household name in her native Britain after starring in 2002's Bend It Like Beckham, and has gone on to star in box office hits like Pirates Of The Caribbean, Pride and Prejudice, and Atonement.

Knightley is pleased more conversations regarding feminism in Hollywood are taking place, but she insists the industry still has a way to go before women are offered the same kind of opportunities in film as their male counterparts.
