Keira Knightley strikes a pose on the cover of Elle UK magazine’s March 2015 issue, out on newsstands on Thursday, January 29!
Here’s what the 29-year-old English actress had to share with the mag:
On the origins of her name: “I was meant to be named ‘Kiera’, after a Russian ice skater who was on the TV one day. My dad fancied her and nicked her name for me. But it was my mum who went to register my birth, and she accidentally spelled ‘ei’ instead of ‘ie’ because my mum’s crap at spelling. Apparently, when she came back he said: ‘WHAT THE F–K? You’ve spelt her name wrong!’ What were they going to do, though? Once it’s on the piece of paper, it’s on the piece of paper. And that’s me. A spelling error.”
