Begin Again: Could Keira Knightley Follow Anna Kendrick as Movie Star with Hit Song?


Could Keira Knightley be the next movie star with a hit single? Here’s a video of Keira singing “Like a Fool” from “Begin Again.” Last year Anna Kendricks had a hit called “Cups” from the movie “Pitch Perfect.” Something tells me Keira could have a hit– of course, the “f” word will have to be covered up.

“Begin Again” widens this weekend. It might be the sexiest romantic comedy ever without a sex scene. Everyone in it has chemistry– Keira and Mark Ruffalo, Keira and Adam Levine, Mark Ruffalo and Catherine Keener.

Just as a reminder, here’s Adam singing “Lost Stars.”
