On keep working after having her baby: “My mum always worked when I was small,” says Knightley, “and she’s always had a real thing about me continuing to work, and I think a lot of my sense of self came from me being so proud of her for working and having that ethic.”

“I think for my sense of identity, it was suddenly very important that I had that thing that was still me and mine,” she says. “I’ve only been able to do it because I can afford the childcare, but I think that sense of identity is something that a lot of women really feel rocked by and work was a way for me to keep that.”

On playing Colette: “It’s a great part,” says Knightley. “I was thinking of me as a kid and what I
would have dreamed to play – it’s a character like that one.’ The film feels uncannily well-timed, and chimes with the other, more contextual shift in Knightley’s life: the explosion of the Me Too and Time’s Up movements that have simply changed everything. “I hope Pandora’s box has been opened,” she says, “because you can’t shut it again.”
