With an Academy Award nomination under her belt and upcoming movies that plunge into the worlds of Freud, Jung and Tolstoy, Keira Knightely is no slouch when it comes to serious acting. She sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about how she slipped into the role of Sabine Spielrein, a Russian woman suffering from heavy psychological issues, for her upcoming film. In a more harrowing scene of David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method," Knightley's character was placed in a very compromising position. She was to be spanked.

It's a cold winter morning and Keira Knightley is sitting alone in the library of a central London hotel. No, she confides, she hasn't shot the suicide sequence in the train station yet. That is a treat waiting in store for the final day of filming, just before Christmas. Knightley is a disconcerting interviewee. She is very pretty in a sylph-like way. Still only 26, she is friendly, articulate and seemingly unguarded, but quickly makes it clear that there are certain no-go areas where interviewers are forbidden to tread. Miss Jean Brodie-like, she tells you primly that she does not want to discuss her beauty routine or her love life.

Keira Knightley, Kelly Brook, Lily Cole and Kimberly Stewart are transported to a glorious underwater world in stunning pictures highlighting the global water crisis killing 5, children every day. The stars ventured into the deep for a unique shoot with Oscar-winning photographer Candice in aid of Fresh2o, a social media enterprise she founded to help the 2. In the snaps, Knightley dons a flowing gown and becomes entangled in seaweed-esque rolls of film as cameras look over her. Brook, meanwhile, is transformed into a mermaid exploring underwater ruins, as models Cole and Stewart strike a pose even while swimming in their heels and dresses.
Keira Knightley issued a strict 'no touching' order while filming kinky scenes - for her new movie - even when she was supposed to be spanked. She plays real-life psychoanalyst Sabina Spielrein in the film about the birth of psychoanalysis, while co-star Fassbender plays fellow scientist Carl Jung. The actress, who wore a monotone dress by Roksanda Ilincic and towering Salvatore Ferragamo heels, added that watching the nude scenes was "strange" but that the job was a "dream come true". She added that she likes to vary the roles she takes on, saying: "It's important to push yourself. I don't want to do the same thing again and again and again and I don't think people really want to watch that, and sometimes I'm going to fall flat on my face and I think I have done that, and will continue to do that but hopefully there will be some gems in there that are really interesting as well.
