Keira Drunk Doolittle

08.06.2008by: Cherry Liquor

Keira Knightley still has to audition for roles. Somehow, that just doesn't compute in my brain, especially when it's for stuff like playing Eliza Doolittle in the remake of MY FAIR LADY. But I can buy into the fact that the actress admits to getting drunk before throwing her singing skills out on the chopping block.

I probably did slur my words, Knightley told the U.K. edition of Glamour in its September issue about having a drink before her audition to play Eliza Doolittle. I told [producer Cameron Mackintosh] that would be the only way I could sing in front of everyone. The only way, eh? I wonder if that's the only way she can do other things as well. But I have a dirty mind.

Anyhow, whatever magic it was that worked in the audition room, whether it be the drinking or, I don't know, perhaps the fact that she's 23 and already has a couple of Oscar nominations under her belt, worked. Knightley WILL be playing Eliza. Big forking surprise, eh?

Extra Tidbit: Stop making remakes. Please? Pretty please? With sugar-free sugar mixed in a decaf espresso? What does it take to bribe you people to have some original thoughts, huh movie makers?

I think she'll make a good Eliza, even though this remake really is unnecessary.
