Keira Knightley - Keira Knightley: Karl Lagerfeld Is 'Amazing'

Keira Knightley thinks that Karl Lagerfeld is ''amazing''.

The actress revealed her admiration for the Chanel designer who famously labelled Adele ''too fat'' earlier this year and recently revealed he doesn't like Pippa Middleton's face.

Keira told Harper's Bazaar magazine: ''Karl's amazing. He's an avid reader. And he speaks about five different languages, so he'll be rattling English to you and French to somebody else, and German to somebody else, and then the phone rings and he's speaking in Italian.''

Keira stars in the titular role of period drama 'Anna Karenina' alongside Jude Law and Aaron Johnson.

The movie centres on aristocrat Anna's life-changing affair with the wealthy Count Vronsky.

Keira admits she took pity on co-star Jude's daily transformation in hair and make-up.

She said: ''No wonder he kept that hat on. Poor f***er. I'd get to the end of the day, take my make-up and wig off, and I'd look s***.

''He'd take the make-up and wig off and look f***ing brilliant. And everyone would say, 'Oh yeah! Good-looking man underneath!'''

The 27-year-old star insists she's more comfortable in her skin that she's ever been.

She revealed: ''I hated late teens, I hated early twenties, all of that, I think a lot of people do.

''Possibly I think I'm one of those people that always would have done and it didn't really matter where I was in life.

''But I was totally uncomfortable in everything. And all of a sudden 25 hit, and I was like, 'Ah, I think I'm all right.'

''And actually, after 25 it's been pretty good. I definitely feel like I've been around the block a couple of times, and that's great.''
