Is Aaron Taylor-Johnson The Next Big Thing? Keira Knightley And Joe Wright Weigh In

[ video unavailable on this device ]

Maybe you know Aaron Taylor-Johnson as the guy who got his ass kicked, and then saved, by Chloe Moretz in Kick-Ass. Maybe you know him as the guy who got engaged to his 23-years-older Nowhere Boy director Sam Taylor back when he was just 19, and now has two daughters with her. Or you could not know him at all. Yet. We’ve been keeping our eye on him lately, as he seduced us into sitting through all of the otherwise awful Savages and then as he seduced Keira Knightley into abandoning her son and society for his Count Vronsky in Anna Karenina (out today). And we think that those bedroom eyes and luscious locks will be gracing our screens a whole lot more often. When VH1 got to speak to Knightley and their AK director Joe Wright, we asked what’s so seductive about the 22-year-old Brit, and where they think he’ll go next.

“He’s a good mate, so no, I don’t think I could find anything seductive [about him],” Knightley laughed. “He’s a really lovely guy, got amazing hair. He’s wearing a wig in this film, but he actually has amazing hair. Very curly and brown. I’m quite jealous of his hair.”

She’s a fan of his acting, too, of course, but had more to say about Aaron as a family man. “He’s very funny in real life, a real sweethearts,” she said. “He is one of the best dad I’ve ever seen. He is so great with his girls.”

Wright offered this assessment of his young star’s career: “I think Aaron can do whatever he sets his mind to,” he told us. “At the moment he’s being an extraordinarily wonderful husband and father. I don’t know what he’s going to do next. It will be exciting to see.”

At the moment, Taylor-Johnson is shooting Kick-Ass 2, but we’re crossing our fingers for even more from him in the future. In the meantime, enjoy a look back at his beauty in film and on the red carpet.

Keira Knightley is Manipulative

Posted by Adam

KEIRA Knightley admits she’s a “duplicitous and manipulative” person.

The actress says she shares the same deceptive qualities as her character Anna Karenina from the film of the same name — which is based on Leo Tolstoy‘s 19th century tragic love story about a Russian princess who falls in love with a cavalry officer.

“There are aspects of her that I don’t like. Then you go, ‘Am I any better?’ I am duplicitous and manipulative and all those things. Hopefully that doesn’t define me but they are parts of my personality,” she said.

“When I was very young, I was hounded by these hideous men. What they wanted was the picture of me falling out of the club. They weren’t going to get that out of me. No, I chose very, very deliberately not to, because I couldn’t bear the idea of giving in to them. It takes a stubbornness.”

Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 Ad Part 2 Makes More Sense, In A Tree Of Life Sort Of Way

You’d be forgiven for thinking that part 2 of Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 ad is directed by Terrence Malick. The meaningful voiceover — “It’s not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on … The world turns, and we turn with it. Plans disappear, dreams take over” — is the same as in the first version of the ad, but now it’s paired with beautiful images of women looking out over a city at night, walking on water in front of a mountain range at sunset, walking through a stark office building and riding an elevator. And then there’s that zoomed-out image of the Earth from space — except it looks like a lava-covered newborn planet that would fit perfectly into one of those beautiful-but-inscrutable scenes from The Tree of Life.

Except this isn’t a Malick movie at all but the work of Joe Wright, who’s known for his much more character-driven movies like Pride and Prejudice, Atonement and the upcoming Anna Karenina.

As spacey and weird as this ad it, we kind of prefer it to version 1. Even though that means less Brad Pitt time. It’s less creepy Brad Pitt time. Though someone still needs to explain how it’s a good thing if a perfume makes you both ever present and “inevitable.” That sounds like you’re maybe using too much.
