Comments from Youtube

TheZazbou : She's such an inspiration to me

Valhalla : still impressed that she read Anna Karenina at least twice ... that's a 1000 page novel lieing aroung in my shelve without having been touched once ... and I'm not even dyslexic.

TheLifeDyslexic : What an excellent an insightful interview. Kiera Knightley's story is an inspiration to children with dyslexia.

Laylla's Locker : I adored her for a long time now. Great actress, great human. I would also like to point out how I adore her wrinkles at her forehead. no dumb botox and fake looks.

Annabel Yates : I was exactly the same. I remember when I was 11 - by then my dyslexia was much better but I was still feeling pretty vulnerable about it - and I saw a poster in my English class with famous people with disabilities. Keira was up there as someone with dyslexia and I was so thrilled. I looked up at that poster at the beginning of every lesson and felt so much braver. Now I'm doing an English Literature and Creative Writing degree so clearly it doesn't have to hold anyone back ☺️💖

Alexy2m : Am Dyslexia and I want to be an actor. Am 28 years old but I have no confidence in reading!

Right Resources : Great interview. Thank you from all of us who process information in a different way. :-) There are so many people who have not yet been able to realise their potential due to either lack of 'self-awareness/ self-knowledge of their 'processing differences', lack of appropriate support or fear of speaking out ...both within education and within workplaces. We believe it is so important to feel #safetotalk about dyslexia and other neurodivergent 'conditions' (such as dyscalculia, dyspraxia, ADD....), Accredited Dyslexia Champions™ are approachable, knowledgeable, impartial volunteers who are 'qualified to guide' within organisations and we are seeking to bring about this much-needed change.

Morgane Gautier : I used the same memorising trick to mask it :) I wish my parents/teachers were as king as her about spelling.

A Setefano : Wow! full on laughed at everything she said and kept saying "Me too!" lol.

Wieme Mo : I don't know why that made me tear up a bit. She's amazing. I love you 😍

c Gull : Wow...!!! Who could've imagined !!! Hats off....!

jayaveeran : Damn, she beautiful...

watercat1302 : My partner has dyslexia and I only realized it recently. Thank you for such an inspiring interview...

Daria : Love Keira! It's nice to see her discuss something in a casual atmosphere, I miss her early interviews.

alwaysonyourside125 : well said. i respect her so much!!

ZeeshaanBukhari22 : I love her you are Best Keira.

Irina Florian : I agree with everything she said, but also, almost everyone in Uni had dyslexia ...

Tomislav Krejacic : know as i said...don't be afraid...;-)

Clare st clair : This is a beautiful insightful and real interview it just shows people that believe that celebrities are these God like beings this shows you that they are human they aren't all perfect and that they to suffer and have struggles like us normal mortals. I appreciate and love her so much for sharing this bit of personal info that could inspire some one with this struggle.

Amanda Eliasson : i was diagnosed when I was 13 and I really wish I would have been sooner

Davide Loi : 1st: I didn't know she was dislexic. 2nd: I didn't know how good she was as an actress until I saw Anna Karenina some days ago. (and I will start reading Tolstoj next week thanks to that). 3rd: there is a typo/spelling mistake in the video title :) Please correct that.

Yao-Hsuan Lin : Her name should be K"ei"ra, no?

linanryz : Well said

David Ayer : Your best video to date!

Roxana de la Cruz : Muy buena entrevista 👍

Chris Davies : It's true! Dailysex is a real problem. I have suffered from it, badly.

Reggie Santos : I am dyslexic and have been a teacher (had to leave due to not coping), I don't think Kiera is accurate here- the issue is not teachers not knowing what to do, the issue is the whole education system going against dyslexic learners- you can't blame the teachers when they have no choice in how the system works. I honestly think I would have lost my job if I mainly taught to get the best out of dyslexic children, it requires a completely different pedagogy and different way of assessing children that's not mainly through timed exams and coursework...can you imagine the UK education system changing completely this way?! I hope one day but right now it's not there.

Eleanor Rigby : where are the other specific learning difficulties kids at? dyspraxia? adhd anyone?🤩

Ingrid .V : men, I wish I had a different upbringing where children are encouraged to be creative, was definitely not the case.

Elena Di Ruvo : The way she gets moved by this topic, which affects her so directly, gives me chills. I can see Keira is a very strong woman and has a great power in her mouth, the power of speaking: her speaking is so ahead and authentic, this is really rare to find in actors such as her. Your mind is fresh, well structured and, most of all, full of imagination, which really is "key to everything", Keira; you're just amazing!

Mari Ramos : She is awesome

NARROW : It really disgusts me how people today are trying to re-label dyslexia as retardation when people that are dyslexic have higher IQs than the average person it shows that they don't understand what dyslexia is and they listen to quack doctors who are trying to change their minds because I'm dyslexic and I have a 140 IQ my brother's dyslexic and some of the greatest Geniuses on planet Earth actually the majority of them have been dyslexic how about that

A R : I'm having the same struggles. Great at creative writing but struggle with spellinh, grammar. If I'm reading I have to really focus in order to not skip lines or words or mess up or muddle things up. I also memorised fourth pages of everyone's lines by accident in a night but then struggled to memorize my last ten pages of lines. I love acting and art and music and anything creative. I thought all through my life that dyslexia was just words and letters getting up and moving and squiggling on the page like the posters as if by some hallucination and so I never brought it up while I was in formal education. I'm home schooled and struggle with maths. I understand it but i get this block and it doesn't sink in when I have to write it down, show my work or read it back to someone else. I enjoyed science when I got to high school which I was suprised I was good at. I figured out that we'd always worked from textbooks in primary rather than physical demonstrations and in high school even if it was on the board my teacher really showed things clearly and effectively. Now I'm homeschooled and because I didn't realise I had or at least consider that I might have dyslexia while I was in school my mum says I can't be tested and so can't be helped with it. Any advice.

Justin Y : But how did her directors find out that she was dyslexic.

Charlie Knightley : I wonder what my surname is?!?!

حلا المقداد : There's something changed in her but i can't know what ?

a a : ❤️inspo

Reina Cedeño//The Ponticello : Keira's publicists must tell her she needs good hair and makeup before the interviews. Ultimately she looks pail and slopy.

Rukshana Yesmine Jalil : I wish I had the same experience, early diagnosis it could have helped me. But I was diagnosed at 18/19 in college. An I remember in primary school I was clinging to one book. I remember the pictures but not the title, I remember I could only say the the first sentence or word to it. But I never really read it or did my teacher read to me. I was sad and embarrassed. One teacher shouted at me told me I should remove my scarf because I wasnt listening. But that wasn’t the case. I didn’t understand like the rest of my class. She called me deaf and stupid. I was so scared to even say anything. I was just a little girl 6-8 years old I think it carried on til I left primary, when it was school I would fake a tummy ache to avoid school. The secondary came I tried to concentrate but my maths and English teacher were comedians should I say making jokes in class with pupils. In class time. I couldn’t concentrate. Then I started too rebel, I would avoid going school and pretend to be tired and sick. No one really cared for my education. No one knew. No one asked. They thought I was just stupid. Or troubled child. But actually it was the opposite I didn’t understand anything I couldn’t concentrate or take words in. Words would jump, I would forget what I read so quickly but remember first line. Even in college there was always one person would try and distract me. I would move away from them just so I could push myself to learn. I tried so hard. But it started effecting me emotionally. I began to feel like a failure. But I’m changing that with my child and along the way I helped my sister get help. She was diagnosed with it too. But unfortunately they couldnt test her at year 10. Her college did. She’s doing well. So I’m gonna ensure my daughter does too. Only 2 yrs old but I will make sure ishe gets the best start. So it doesn’t happen to her. Education can start at home, Teaching at home. An ensure that she is not missed at school like they did with me. The funny side of that, the primary school I went to is-well known for great education in east London. But I know it wasn’t. Teachers would pick and choose who they liked out of the children and show love and respect. Not the kid that was quiet.

al11pacino : Where is make up? #ME TOO

David J. Ridgway : The only thing dyslexic about this interview is that Keira Knightley is a gotdamn TRANNY! Look at that can-opener jaw! Hideous creature!

Joy Corcoran : I think shes LYING as teachers are NOT that stupid

Kur Papa : Needs botox

Eduardo Rocha : she talks way too much and way too fast... weird

ric david : I think this person is a man.

Alex Beyer : She's an idiot NPC.
