"It just so happens that they are the best parts that I'm offered. I'm not quite sure. There's lots of good parts in modern pieces, but I'm never offered them. So you know I'm always going with the characters that I find the most interesting. And this certainly fit that bill. Also, I like the clothes. I mean, what can I tell you?".
Knightley, who shot to fame in the blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean" film series, says she prefers smaller films nowadays.
"You get less press intrusion around them. And generally speaking – not always – but generally speaking, the stories are very interesting and the characters are more complex. And I think in my life, what I want to spend more time doing is trying to tell interesting stories about complex women. I've found that in smaller films -- not necessarily as much in larger films".
"The Aftermath," directed by James Kent and also starring Alexander Skarsgard and Jason Clarke, opens today in the U.S.
