Keira Knightley was invited to the podcast The Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter where she opened her heart to talk about a dark period of her career.
At the age of 22, when she was part of the cast of 'Pirates of the Caribbean', the actress claims to have been the victim of paparazzi persecution.
Keira says the photographers would insist until they picked up at a more fragile time. "I was, 'I'm not going to give you that.' 'So it was a battle every day," he said.
Exhausted from the situation, the actress decided to step away from the spotlight for a year and do therapy.
"I had a mental breakdown at age 22, I took a year and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress because of all these events. I took therapy seriously," he added.
