'The Imitation Game' Star Keira Knightley Opens Up About Being Married With James Righton, Wants Her Daughter To Stay Away From Acting

Keira Knightley, who has been living a married life for more than a year already, has said that she made the right decision to wed Klaxons singer James Righton.

"It was a bloody good day and a lot of fun," Knightley, 29, told Glamour magazine of her wedding last year.  "And yes, being married feels pretty good.  You only get to choose one member of your family and I made a good choice.  So well done, me!"

Knightley and Righton began dating in February 2011, and the 31-year-old new wave musician was believed to have popped the big question to the "The Imitation Game" actress in May 2012. They tied the knot at a low-key ceremony in Mazan in the South of France in May last year, Celebrity Bride Guide reported.

And while Knightley and Righton have remained tight-lipped as to whether they are already planning to have a baby soon, the Oscar-nominated actress told Glamour magazine that she would "totally discourage" any daughter of hers from becoming an actress.

"I should imagine that if she wanted to act, I wouldn't have a choice, but, no, I certainly wouldn't recommend it," said the actress who made her big screen debut in 1995.

"It can be completely heartbreaking for most people who do it, because the amount of rejection is enormous," she explained of her profession. "And it doesn't matter what kind of person you are: it's impossible for that not to take a toll. Even if you're successful, you still have to go through a shitload of rejection."

"So I would say to my daughter: 'Be a doctor or a lawyer - something stable and useful,'" she added.

Knightley's parents, who both worked in the entertainment industry, let her have her own agent at the early age of six. She then gained widespread recognition in 2002 after co-starring in the film "Bend It Like Beckham," The Mirror reported.
