Keira Knightley Responds to Misrepresentation of Childbirth Essay

Keira Knightley is speaking out after an excerpt from her essay about childbirth seemingly called out Kate Middleton.

The 33-year-old actress addressed the essay during a Screen Talks event during the BFI London Film Festival on Friday (October 12) in London, England.

“I think certain aspects of the media have misrepresented — I hope not purposefully, because that would be extraordinary, wouldn’t it? — my entire meaning of the entire essay,” Keira explained while on stage.

She continued, “That essay is about childbirth, it’s about motherhood, and it’s about complete empathy with every other woman that has been through the extremity of labor. It’s also about my sudden realization that what our culture asks us to do is to hide our truths and to silence our experiences. So it is exactly the opposite of what certain media has reported it to be. And I think just shows [that] as far as the feminist movement goes, we have a long way to go.”
