Keira Knightley's life could easily be mistaken for a fairy tale.
More than a decade ago, the brunette beauty was launched into international superstardom with her breakthrough role in Bend It Like Beckham, paving the way for a slew of other parts in major blockbusters like the Pirates of the Caribbean, Pride and Prejudice and Atonement, which earned her two Oscar noms and three Golden Globe nominations.
Knightley turns 31 today, surely celebrating a year in which the talented actress took on quite a few roles particularly different from her norm. Back in 2013, the birthday girl married her prince charming, musician James Righton, and last June, Keira traded film scripts for motherhood.
But despite her years in the spotlight, Knightley has kept the lid mostly shut on her private life, save for a few major insights that have lead us to believe she really is living the dream.
