Keira on Teenage Stardom–Gracing the July cover of ELLE UK, Keira Knightley charms in a look from Gucci’s fall-winter 2014 collection. The British actress poses for Thomas Whiteside inside the issue in dazzling looks from designer labels. Besides the photo shoot, Keira also opens up about how difficult it was being a teenaged actress–so much so that she would advise her own (hypothetical) daughter not to act at a young age. “I’d absolutely tell her not to. I would 150 million trillion per cent be totally discouraging. Teenage years should be done privately. You should be going out and getting unbelievably drunk, getting into ridiculous situations, making mistakes. That’s what that time of life is about and we should do that privately.”

But the Chanel Mademoiselle face also admits she is okay with how things turned out. “Saying that, I don’t regret it – I wouldn’t do my life any differently, but having lived through it…There was a very long time when [interviewers] were all: “Well you’re a sh*t actress and you’re anorexic and people hate you” which, for a teenager is a very strange thing.'”

The June issue of ELLE UK hits stores on June 5th.
