Keira Knightley, James Righton

Keira Knightley jetted into Sundance yesterday for about 18 hours for the premiere of her new indie, Laggies.

Just the other day, the British beauty was in L.A. for the premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Even so, don't expect Knightley to start complaining about being away from her hubby of eight months, musician James Righton.

"I travel for my job all the time and so does he, so I think it's just part of my life," she told me on the Laggies red carpet, where she looked cozy in a grey and black Valentino sweater and skirt combo and black Chanel shoes. "I always enjoy it."

She also enjoys finding her inner teenager. In the film, directed by Lynn Shelton, Knightley plays a 28-year-old woman who freaks out when her boyfriend proposes.

"She decides to kind of go on a holiday for a week where she sort of reverts back to being a 16-year-old," Knightley explained.

The actress admitted she relates to the character "in every way" and acts like a 16-year-old "pretty much every day."

"It's where the fun comes from," Knightley said.

Meanwhile, Knightley said she's hoping to do a Broadway play sooner than later.

One thing she doesn't want to do? Direct.

Knightley said she "occasionally" thinks about it, "but then I go, 'Nah, I don't think I'd be very good at that.'"
