Keira Knightley does not want her children to be “spoiled”.
The 36-year-old actress – who has Edie, six, and Delilah, two, with husband James Righton – is always happy to buy new books for her daughters because she gets bored hearing the same stories , but she is more reluctant. to cover them with toys.
She said: “Toys, mine are not so much allowed because we don’t want them to be spoiled, but the books they want are absolutely allowed.

She told The Daily Telegraph’s Luxury Supplement: “I’m dyslexic, so I find it difficult to read. I have to really focus – and I have young kids, so it’s impossible.
