Along with fame comes great responsibility. It has pros and cons. The negative consequences to deal with. “The pictures of famous girls, which came out of myself, then paid a lot of money. On the one hand, viewers wanted to see you sexy and on the other they wanted to humiliate, to punish you for your success and appeal. If you didn’t stumble, didn’t make a mistake, they did everything possible to bring you to this state…. The fact that everyone wanted, that I was wrong, it was so obvious, and I didn’t want that to happen… Every exit from the house was a real challenge for me,” recalled the actress.

In 18 years, the actress starred in the cult first part of the franchise “pirates of the Caribbean: the Curse of the Black pearl”. Then, her photos flooded the Internet, she became a celebrity. Then Kira had an affair with a partner on the film “Pride and prejudice” by Rupert Friend, and then the paparazzi, and not give the actress the aisle. The release of the movie “Atonement,” which earned her no less of fame, Kira was ready to stop playing the movie. She not only had to go to a therapist to overcome panic attacks, but can resort to hypnosis. She did this temporarily to cope with the BAFTA awards in 2008.

“I had to do this, to suppress a panic attack. At the age of 22 I had a nervous breakdown, so I took a one year break from movies and started going to a therapist. I was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. At some point, my therapist told me: “it’s Amazing, usually I come up with people who have paranoid ideas that all around chasing them, although in reality it is not. You are the first person which really faced such persecution”.

This is not the only difficulty faced by the actress on the way to the top of a career. More and more Actresses admit that they had experienced harassment from colleagues. As noted by the actress, harassments faced. 32-year-old actress admitted that has never been subjected to harassment or violence from their colleagues. Also the star told about the experience of working with Harvey Weinstein. As she says Kira, she can’t accuse him of harassment. “He was always a true professional while working on films in which I starred. I knew of his reputation as a bully. He was known to call people in the middle of the night and screamed at them. But with me not happened and, of course, he didn’t offer me a massage or something like that. I didn’t know about rape and other horrible things. I think many people were scared, afraid of revenge, so was silent. I don’t think everyone knew what was going on,” says the star.
