Keira Knightley has called herself “duplicitous and manipulative,” much like her character from her newest movie, 'Anna Karenina'.

The 27-year-old British actress told Canadian FLARE magazine: "There are aspects of her [Anna] that I don't like. Then you go, 'Am I any better?'

"I am duplicitous and manipulative and all those things. Hopefully that doesn't define me but they are parts of my personality."

Keira also said that she is stubborn, but that this trait has helped her against “horrible” paparazzi that used to pester her for photographs while she was drunk.

“When I was young, I was hounded by these hideous men,” she said. “What they wanted was the picture of me falling out of the club. They weren’t going to get that out of me. No, I chose very, very deliberately not to, because I couldn’t bear the idea of giving in to them. It takes stubbornness.”

The US premiere of 'Anna Karenina' was forced to be delayed this week due to Hurricane Sandy.
