Keira Knightley is unsure what direction to take her career in.
'The Duchess' star - who shot to fame in 2002 movie 'Bend It Like Beckham' and has since starred in a host of acclaimed films, including 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and 'Pride and Prejudice' - doesn't know which role to take on next.
She said: "I haven't quite found what I'm looking for yet. What I'm not capable of doing is, 'For my career, I should be doing this right now.' I can't do that because I can't try and be interested in something that I'm not.
"It has to be about something that I do actually want to talk about. It can be really embarrassing and depressing and very cynical if you sit there and go, 'Well, I got a really big pay cheque.' "
Despite being associated with Hollywood blockbusters, Keira also revealed her favourite film of recent times is a little-known independent movie about an aspiring restaurateur.
She added to USA Today newspaper: "There's an amazing film called 'Couscous (La Graine et le mulet)' - so beautiful, about a guy who's trying to open a couscous restaurant.
"I sat in the cinema crying and crying and crying. I want to phone the guy up and say thank you. Film can be so magic."
