Keira Knightley May Play Rumored Lesbian on Broadway


Michael Riedel reports that Keira Knightley will star in a West End production of The Children's Hour — Lillian Hellman's 1934 play about two female teachers at a girls' boarding school whose lives are wrecked after a rumor that they are lovers is floated by a student — and that the show may come to Broadway next winter if the London run is successful. This would be Knightley's second rumored-lesbian role, after Bend It Like Beckham. [NYP]
