Atonement star British actress Keira Knightley, 26,graces the October 2011 cover of Marie Claire. In the interview Keira told the magazine she has a six sense and she can smell sexual chemistry right away. She has an almost animal instinct. Keira was speaking to Marie Claire magazine and said: “I think you do know if there is sex in the room — you pick up on chemistry between people.”
Keira said she leaned towards the artistic types when it came to friends and lovers. She said: “I have a mix of both — great guy friends and girlfriends. I have one girlie girlfriend but I’d say my girlfriends are more boyish. And I suppose the guys aren’t great jocks, they are sort of artistic and tend to be directors or writers or musicians or actors. The boys have a sensitive side.”
Keira who traded in boyfriend of five years Rupert Friend for Klaxons star James Righton earlier this year says she used to be fascinated with boys. She said: “I’d go with boyish chic. Growing up I was a tomboy. I didn’t wear skirts until I was 14. I hated them. I love a man’s shirt.’
Keira was in Venice over the weekend to promote her latest project A Dangerous Method at the 68th annual Film Festival.
