Los Angeles: Actress Keira Knightley says when she was growing up, she always saw herself as the 'main guy' in the movie 'The Godfather' rather than the leading man's wife.

"My friend was saying she loved 1970s movies, and we both realised that's because we see ourselves as the main guys in them. When I watched 'The Godfather', I was Al Panico. I wasn't his f***king wife," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
"It's interesting that there's still this funny construction of femininity. So, yes, it's nice working with women, because then you don't have to do this lovable, soft version of what the female sex has to be. It also allows men to understand women, as opposed to them being something pink and fluffy,” she added.
The 1972 American crime film was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and was produced by Albert S. Ruddy. Based on Puzo's 1969 novel of the same name, the film also starred Marlon Brando.
