Knightley regards the moral dilemma at the center of Anna Karenina as being very relevant today. "We're pack animals, and the way that the pack solidifies itself is by turning on the individual. You see that in office places, you see that on playgrounds, you see that in the media, you see that everywhere. Almost what destroys Anna is her inability to lie. It's her inability to deny the relationship and to hide the relationship. I think that's as true today. We all know that stuff goes on, but don't get caught. Don't talk about it."
