Here's Andrew Kendall to celebrate Keira Knightly who just turned 29. Happy Belated Birthday Keira
Considering that both Anna Karenina and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World were released in 2012 is it too soon for Keira withdrawal? Admittedly, I'm greedy -- in the demographic of late twentysomething / early thirtysomething actresses, she's the one most likely to get me to see a movie, no questions asked. (And, so, I fell prey to Jack Ryan which did little in the way of satiating that Keira shaped void.)
Keira lovers have three films to anticipate for 2014: the comedy Laggies debuted at Sundance; the historical drama The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch which already has Oscar buzz; and Begin Again, the significantly less intriguing name of the film once titled Can A Song Save Your Life that featured in TFE's "We Can't Wait" 2014 countdown.

Despite period fatigue from audiences or general Keira antipathy, she's proven herself to be indelible in movies for several years now. Most importantly, she's been consistent muse to one of the more exciting directors of this century. What will she have to offer as she heads into her thirties? As we wait, let's look back on the career, a fine one, despite her first major role playing second fiddle to Thora Birch in the ghastly 2001 teen-film The Hole.
Yes, that jutting jaw gets much flack, but hers is one of the more arresting faces on screens right now. And what better way to celebrate that face than with a beauty break?
A nonuplet of Keira-pretty images below – featuring her nine best performances thus far.
Which of her 2014 roles do we think will be a worthy addition to this collection?
