Keira Knightley is trying to convince us that’s she’s a foodie. She gave an interview to Australian Marie Claire (story via Monsters and Critics) in which she says that her life revolves around food and eating. She claims to love pasta dishes, cheese and French fries (“chips”). Do you believe her?
There have been rumors about Keira and various alleged eating disorders for years now. I’ve always tended to believe that she’s a naturally stick-thin girl, regardless of what she does or does not eat. I think when she happens to lose a few pounds, it becomes really, really noticeable because her frame is so petite. Keira has never wavered from her story that she does not have any kind of eating disorder, so I suppose everyone will have their own opinions. In any case, Keira is still trying to convince us how much she loves food – and at this point, it just sounds like bragging.
Keira Knightley loves eating chips.
The slender actress says enjoying big meals is one of her favourite pastimes, particularly if they feature fattening French Fries or pasta.
She admitted: “I’m a big foodie. In my family life, all good things revolve around the dinner table. My mum’s cooking is great. We have big dinners, and big everything. There’s nothing like a really good chip, a really crunchy, good chip. And I love pasta. I make Bolognese with tons and tons of Parmesan cheese.”
Despite enjoying cooking, Keira admits her kitchen disasters have occasionally reduced her to tears.
She told Australia’s Marie Claire magazine: “The other night, a friend was teaching me how to make an eggplant bake. I brought it out of the oven in this beautiful bowl – and dropped it. It smashed all over the kitchen, and I burst into tears.”
“But 10 minutes later we were laughing about it. I mean, if I were Nigella Lawson, I would have licked it off the floor very seductively as opposed to bursting into tears.”

I’ve never cried over a broken dish before, but I have cried over spilled food. Once, several years ago, I was absolutely starving, to the point where I was shaking from hunger. It was one of those weird times when I was driving for hours and hours, and I was just insanely tired and hungry. Anyway, I went to heat up some leftovers that I had been looking forward to, and I dropped them on the floor. I literally started sobbing and allowed myself a little breakdown.
