NEW YORK (AP) — Actress Keira Knightley seems to be in a good place personally and professionally. She’s engaged to marry musician James Righton and stars in the film adaptation of “Anna Karenina” alongside Jude Law.

The 27-year-old Miss Knightley tells Vogue magazine’s October issue that there was a time when she wasn’t in such a good place.

She recalls a time when the fame from such roles as “Bend It Like Beckham” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise was too intense. She says she “literally had no life outside of acting” and desired to “not be ‘on’ all the time.”

Instead of working, Miss Knightley read books, cooked and lived in France.

The October issue of Vogue goes on sale nationwide Sept. 25.

“Anna Karenina” opens in limited release on Nov. 16.
