Keira Knightley In Talks to Star in Carnie Wilson Biopic

Carnie Wilson’s extraordinary life and career is soon to be shared with the world in the upcoming biopic Carnie, with actress Keira Knightley in talks to play the title role. As the daughter of Beach Boy legend Brian Wilson, Carnie’s struggles to prove herself along with her battles with obesity are well known.
Many have wondered who, of any living entertainer today, could most accurately and sensitively portray Wilson’s life. Anna Kareninastar Keira Knightley appears to be the strongest contender for this challenging role. An insider who watched Knightley’s screen test claims, “Keira’s ability to capture Carnie’s triumphs and struggles with body image is groundbreaking. She is Carnie.” Some are predicting that this role might lead to Knightley’s first leading-actress Oscar.
While Knightley has yet to confirm her role in the film, she has not ruled it out, stating “it would be an honor to play a woman like Carnie, whose struggle I identify with on so many levels. We also look somewhat alike.”
The forthcoming biopic may serve as the ultimate statement about unattainable standards of women’s weight and attractiveness in the entertainment industry.
