I was banned from pouts in `Pride and Prejudice`: Keira Knightley
Los Angeles: Actress Keira Knightley, who is known for her glamorous pouts, has revealed that she was once forbidden to employ her go-to expression on camera.
The 28-year-old actress said that back in 2005 her `Pride and Prejudice` director Joe Wright did not allow her to purse her lips on screen, reported Us magazine.
"I`ve got it out of my system. I didn`t know I did it so much, and Joe banned it from the film," she said.
The Oscar-nominated British actress and Wright went on to work together in `Atonement` (2007) and `Anna Karenina` (2012).
But it was only until 2011 that Wright finally relented on the ban when the two teamed up for a Chanel perfume campaign.
"Then, when we did the Chanel adverts he said, `You know that pout we banned? Can we have it back and as much as possible`," Knightley added.
