"Pirates of the Caribbean beauty" KEIRA KNIGHTELY in a Tolstoy tizzy, wants nothing to do with GRETA GARBO!
Knightley refuses to rewatch ANY prior film adaptations of Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina” for fears she might be influenced by other actresses enacting the doomed beauty.
Keira confessed to Interview mag, "I saw a couple of versions ages ago. I've seen the one that was on TV in England with Helen McCrory playing Anna playing Anna, and she's wonderful.
"I also saw the Greta Garbo version, but years and years ago.
“I didn't want to see it again just before I played the part because I thought if I did something similar that I would want it to be an accident, not because I've nicked it.”
