Celebrity weddings are generally a bit of a spectacle: Even if the betrothed manage to keep their details a secret, once the question is popped, the engagement and dress predictions that abound are enough to keep the masses reeling. So, when Keira Knightley opened up to Marie Claire about her engagement to James Righton, we were surprised to hear that she doesn't want a big, elaborate production, like so many of her Tinseltown peers.
Rather, Keira pines for the simple life. We were completely caught off guard when she told the magazine "We're not big-wedding types. I don't need to have all of that." Maybe it's because of her several-million pound house in East London, or maybe it's just because we've just seen her do elegant so well in her films that we imagine she could totally rock the luxe bridal look.
For more of her refreshing, down-to-earth philosophies, check out the March issue of Marie Claire, available now.
