Keira Knightley is full of surprises.

Case in point? The Oscar-nominated actress only gives herself a $50,000 salary because she believes that living an expensive lifestyle "alienates" her from others.

"I think living an expensive lifestyle means you can't hang out with people who don't live that lifestyle," the 29-year-old beauty muses in the latest issues of Glamour magazine while looking stunning on the cover in a pink backless Altuzarra dress. "It alienates you. Some of my best most hilarious times have been in the least luxurious places."

After taking a yearlong break from film, the Anna Karenina star is back and better than ever following her marriage to Klaxon keyboardist James Righton. The two said "I do" in France last May and despite her seemingly wedded bliss, the actress admits she's never been the marrying type.

"No! Not at all!" she replied when asked if she's always been a fan of marriage.

"Actually my parents kept saying 'Why bother?' I think they only [got married] to get a mortgage. But when James proposed, I just thought, Well never done that before. It seemed like a fun thing to do."

Talk about an interesting reply to a proposal.

Like her approach to marriage, Knightley has always done things her way, despite what critics may say. For example, she donned a shocking Chanel number for the Tribeca Film Festival in April, and despite the backlash, she doesn't regret her fashion risk.

"When we were getting ready that evening, we were all going, 'They are soooo going to hate me in this, but they're so wrong.' Apparently the reason they were so mean was because they thought the dress was unsexy. I wasn't intending to be sexy. This idea you have to be sexy on the red carpet—that dress made me very happy reports E News."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
