Keira Knightley gave an interview to Tatler magazine. She spoke about her regrets in putting her education aside for the sake of pursuing an acting career.
Keira said that she felt inadequate without a university education and that gave her an extra driving force to try her best to prove that she was not stupid. Keira revealed that she was diagnosed with dyslexia when she was 6 years old. She reads slowly but that has not put her off the thick novels.
Keira dropped out of school at 17. Since then she has landed good roles in Doctor Zhivago, Bend It Like Beckham, Pride and Prejudice and her career has soared ever since.
