Keira Knightley reveals she had mental breakdown

Keira Knightley has revealed she had a mental breakdown and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder as she struggled with the pressures of fame at a young age.
The actress, who soared to A-list status with roles in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series and Pride & Prejudice following her big break in Bend It Like Beckham at the age of 22, said she went through therapy to cope with her growing celebrity.
Knightley, now 33, spoke out about the price of fame in an episode of The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast, talking candidly about critics and film fans concentrating on her looks rather than her acting, as well as the difficulties of being followed by paparazzi when she was younger.:: Keira Knightley: My name is a spelling error

She said: "I did have a mental breakdown at 22, so I did take a year off there and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder because of all of that stuff."I went deep into therapy and all of that."Looking back now, Knightley added: "I just sort of want to give myself a hug and be like, 'Oh, you're doing all right, you'll be all right'. You know?"But she said, at the time, she "literally felt like I was worthless".:: Knightley Chanel ad 'too sexy for kids'
