Keira Knightley to Play ‘Anna Karenina’


Hollywood actress Keira Knightley is set to play the role of ‘Anna Karenina’ in a new adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel by Joe Wright.

This will not be the 26-year-old’s first collaboration with Wright, the first one being for her Oscar-nominated role as Elizabeth Bennet in ‘Pride and Prejudice’.

Actor Jude Law will be playing Anna’s husband, Aleksei Karenin, and Aaron Johnson will play her lover Count Vronsky.

‘Anna Karenina’ has been cited as one of Leo Tolstoy’s greatest works of fiction, and one of the greatest love stories of all time. Hence, the question that begged to be asked was, is it ‘possible’ for a woman to love two men at the same time.

To which Keira answered, “Is it possible to love two men at the same time? Sometimes it is possible. It has to do with the person you are, the place you are at in your life, and the person you’re with and where he is in his life. I don’t think there’s one answer.”
