Keira Knightley got her start in the indie flick Bend It Like Beckham, but it was her appearance in in 2005’s Pride & Prejudice — which earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination — that made viewers really take notice.
Born on March 26, 1985, the British actress appeared opposite Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films. Knightley has also starred in critically-acclaimed films such as Love Actually, King Arthur, Atonement, The Duchess and Never Let Me Go.
Knightley — who has often been criticized for her rail-thin frame — began dating her Pride & Prejudice costar Rupert Friend in 2005; they split in December 2010. The actress married James Righton in 2013.
