"I don't think you can say that they're a curse……it would be stupid of me to say that my looks haven't played a part in my career, because obviously they have," she told us.
"And obviously they have got me contracts with Chanel, but there have been as many, if not more, parts that I haven't got because of the way that I look. So I suppose it balances out. And I do think that in every profession, regardless of what they look like, people have to prove themselves again and again."
Next March, Keira will turn 30, but is she nervous about the milestone? Not quite! "I'm not actually worried about turning 30. Because, honestly, my early twenties were not much fun. Then after 25, things just got better and better. Maybe you stop caring as much about where you should be going and what other people think - which is all the shit that makes you very unhappy early on."
And she has a reason to be happy - as well as her career going from strength to strength, she's also major loved-up with her husband, Klaxons singer James Righton. She told us all about their wedding last year: "It was a bloody good day and a lot of fun. And yes, being married feels pretty good. You only get to choose one member of your family and I made a good choice. So well done, me!"
Keira also exclusively told us that she would 'totally discourage' any daughter of hers from becoming an actress: "I should imagine that if she wanted to act, I wouldn't have a choice, but, no, I certainly wouldn't recommend it. It can be completely heartbreaking for most people who do it, because the amount of rejection is enormous. And it doesn't matter what kind of person you are: it's impossible for that not to take a toll. Even if you're successful, you still have to go through a shitload of rejection. So I would say to my daughter: 'Be a doctor or a lawyer - something stable and useful."
