Keira Knightley has participated in an ad for a campaign about domestic violence for the charity Women’s Aid. In the movies she is attacked by her partner in a disturbing and confronting two-minute commercial. Her husband is accusing her for having a relationship with a co-star and start to punch her and kick her in the stomach.
Keira Knightley: “I wanted to take part in this advert for Women’s Aid because, while domestic violence exists in every section of society, we rarely hear about it,” she says. “Domestic violence affects one in four women at some point in their lifetime and kills two women every week.”
The ad ends with Keira screaming: “Isn’t it time someone called cut?”
