Ms Knightley, 36, has had quite the life off-screen (although her on-screen life is very cool).

In 2018 she revealed that she had a mental breakdown at age 22 and had been later diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

It came as a result of her struggling to adjust to her sudden rise to stardom.

Keira detailed how she didn’t leave the house for three months up until early 2008.

She added that she needed to have hypnotherapy to prevent panic attacks so she could attend that year’s BAFTA Awards.

And not only has she battled with her mental health, she has had to deal with a stalker.

In February 2010, a 41-year-old man was charged with harassment after trying to contact Knightley on several occasions outside the Comedy Theatre in London, where she performed in the play The Misanthrope.

But the trial collapsed after she was unavailable to testify in court.

However another man was sentenced to eight weeks in prison after harassing Knightley outside her home and stalking her in December 2016.

She’s also had a very tumultuous dating history.

Knightley had a brief dated actor Del Synnott for three years,from 2001 to 2004. She then dated Jamie Dornan from 2003 to 2005, and Rupert Friend from 2005 to 2010.

The next year she began seeing musician James Righton, and thw two married on 4 May 2013 in Mazan, France.

The couple have two daughters together, born in 2015 and 2019, and they all live in Canonbury, Islington.
