  • Keria Knightley says she doesn't like modern-day movies for the way they portray1 women and for regularly featuring themes of sexual abuse.


    The actress has revealed she much prefers period pieces when selecting her roles because the women are treated much better.


    Speaking to Variety for her cover feature, the 32-year-old English star said: 'I don't really do films set in the modern-day because the female characters nearly always get raped2.'


    'I always find something distasteful in the way women are portrayed3, whereas I’ve always found very inspiring characters offered to me in historical pieces.'


    Despite not loving some of the movies she's been offered in recent years, the Love Actually star says she's impressed with the strong female characters she sees on television and streaming services - and she's optimistic about the future for female movie roles.


    'There's been some improvement,' she said. 'I'm suddenly being sent scripts with present-day women who aren't raped in the first five pages and aren't simply there to be the loving girlfriend or wife.'


    In her latest biographical drama, Colette, Keira plays the famed French author as she battles against her husband who's passing off her work as his own.


    The Pride & Prejudice star told Variety that the role was empowering especially during such an important time in Hollywood with sexual abuse being openly discussed.


    The actress also spoke4 about her experiences with disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein - who has been accused by a number of women of sexual harassment5 - as she admitted that he was 'very professional' toward her.


    'He was famous for phoning people in the middle of the night and screaming at them. He didn't do that to me, and he certainly never asked me for massages6 or anything like that.'


    Keira added that she's never been sexually abused on a film set but experienced it four times in her personal life when out at bars.


    'I think everyone has battled their fair share of monsters.' she said.
