Keira Knightly has admitted if she had children, she wouldn't give up her career, insisting she doesn't think being a ''stay at home'' mother is for her.
Keira Knightley wouldn't give up her career for children.
The actress isn't thinking about starting a family just yet but - while she insisted it isn't for her - she believes men and women should be allowed to be ''stay-at-home'' parents without being criticised.
She told the Sunday Express Magazine: ''Would I want to be a stay-at-home mother?
''No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.''
The 28-year-old star also wants equality to extend past family life and into Hollywood, but she believes the film industry is still very much a man's world.
She added: ''There aren't that many female roles. There are way fewer than there are for en and that's always been the case, so there's a lot of competition and a lot of wonderful actresses.''
However, she felt no pressure being surrounded by male stars in 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' and she got on very well with the rest of the cast.
Asked if she was daunted, Keira said: ''Gosh! Should I have been? Generally speaking, with this genre you are the only woman in it.
''But no, I didn't feel weight on my shoulders. I got on well with all the guys and that's nice.''
