Keira Knightley has revealed that she thinks uncertainty is necessary in her career.

The actress, who is currently appearing in The Children's Hour in London's West End, explained that the "possibility of failure" makes a project more appealing.

She told Flaunt: "I don't like the safe options. I like things that have a 50/50 chance of me falling on my face.

"I like the magic when it actually comes together and people enjoy it, but the magic is only there because of the distinct possibility of failure.

"I find that romantic in a funny kind of way."

The 26-year-old, who is reportedly dating Klaxons frontman Jamie Righton, also said that she believes it is important to develop a "thick skin" as an actress.

She added: "I think you do have to try and get a thick skin. And sometimes, the skin goes incredibly thin and everything gets in, and everything hurts, and other times, you're able to turn around and laugh at it and go, 'You know what? It's all fine. It's all good. It's cool'.

"It sort of depends on what day of the week it is."
