Knightley keen for positive roles

Keira Knightley has admitted she is keen to play some more positive roles.

The British actress revealed that after starring in Anna Karenina in 2012 she realised how many more serious and troubled characters she has taken on in recent years.

Keira told DuJour magazine: "After Anna Karenina, I suddenly realised that for the past five years, in all of my films, I either died or was subjected to situations that were each more horrific than the last.

"So I wanted more positive vibrations!"

The 29-year-old seems to have got what she wanted in her upcoming romantic comedy Begin Again, also starring Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine.

"Nothing could correspond better than this New York fairytale of a young woman who tries to finally have the life that she always wanted," said the actress.

Keira has been working in the TV and film industries since she was a child, but she also confessed to the magazine that she still battles a few nerves each time she begins a new project.

"I'm still just as stressed out when I start a film shoot and I'm not happy with everything that I do," she said. "But with time and each new film, I continue to learn, unlearn and learn again. And therefore to build who I am."
