Ten years ago, Knightley and Pike turned heads playing the eldest Bennet sisters, Elizabeth and Jane, in the beloved 2005 adaptation of Jane Austen’s romantic tale Pride & Prejudice. Other members in the impressive ensemble included a fresh-faced Carey Mulligan, Jena Malone, Donald Sutherland and Dame Judi Dench.
Pride & Prejudice was universally praised in the U.K. ahead of its U.S. release, and a then-19 year old Knightley was hopeful the British film would resonate in the States.
“It was so fantastic that it was received so well in England -- obviously it's my home country so I like that but yeah, I just hope people like it here! I’m sure they will, but I hope they do,” Keira, rocking an amazing gold arm cuff, told ET on the red carpet at the 2005 U.S. premiere.
Well, American audiences loved it and the film ended up making more than $121 million at the global box office. It even landed the actress her first Oscar nomination!
