KEIRA KNIGHTLEY ON HER CHRISTMAS COOKING

Keira Knightley


Hollywood superstar Keira Knightley will not be cooking in the kitchen this holiday season, because her cooking usually ends up in tears. Keira is admitting she is not good at cooking, and can rarely make a meal without creating a total disaster. Keira is insisting she is always burning her dinner, or dropping dishes, but she's hoping someone will buy her a cookbook this year so she can improve her kitchen skills. According to the Mirror, she says, "I am not the best cook in the world. I have tried, but I really am hopeless. I can cook maybe one dish. But even then, if you ate it, you'd probably end up with food poisoning. Recently, a friend explained how to make an eggplant bake. I brought it out of the oven in this beautiful bowl, and dropped it. It smashed all over the kitchen, and I burst into tears. Which is why I will ask Santa for some easy-to-understand cookbooks."

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY WILL NOT READ REVIEWS

Keira Knightley

Hollywood star Keira Knightley will not read reviews on her own movies, because they leave her depressed and in the house for days.The actress has received criticism for her acting in the past, and it affected her so much, she now avoids all reviews. Knightley tells Glamour magazine, "Unless I’m unfortunate enough to catch something by accident, which happens, and it’s always a bad review. Always, it’s amazing. I will be sitting in a cafe, and I will open a random paper right to the page of the review. And then you’re sucked in and go home and never want to go out again."

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY WANTS TO BE VERY SMART

Hollywood star Keira Knightley is very determined to prove she is not dumb after dropping out of school at the young age of 17. The actress, who is famed for portraying upper class characters in films like Pride and Prejudice and Atonement, suffers from dyslexia. But she insists her learning disability and poor academia record only spurs her on more to show she is brainy.She says, "It (dyslexia) makes me feel I am going to read absolutely everything so I can prove that I am not stupid." Knightley also admits that giving up university in favor of a movie career has left her with a "chip on her shoulder" over her lack of education. She adds, "I am completely uneducated. Not going to the university did give me an incredible driving force because it leaves you with a slight chip on your shoulder.

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY PLANS FOR DOWNFALL

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley will go back to college when her Hollywood career comes to a end. The talented actress, 22, is convinced the hype surrounding her will eventually die down. But this excites her. Knightley refuses to be bothered about the possible end to her movie career, insisting she’ll merely pick a new profession of choice and study about it in college. She tells OK! magazine, "I think it (film acting) is a profession that gets blown up and down in an instant, and that’s cool, and for me, that’s what I find beautiful about it. It’s not going to last forever, so at some point I will have to move on, and I’ll do something else, and that’s fine."I haven’t got a clue what it is, but when I do know, I’ll go back to university, I’ll study something, and I’ll become it."

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY ON WAY TO BE A NUDIST

Sexy Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley is "on her way" to becoming a nudist.The stunning 'Atonement' actress is quickly becoming known for her willingness to bare all in films, but insists it wasn't a conscious decision.She told US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres: "I don't know why it happened this way. People ask me to pose naked and I just say yes! I find it vaguely liberating."I hope I don't become a nudist, but I'm definitely on my way!"When she does wear period costumes in her films, Keira - who can soon be seen in drama 'The Duchess' - still finds it difficult to breathe in stomach-restraining corsets.She laughed: "At the end of the day, it took me 10 minutes to learn to breathe normally. The corsets are such a workout too - heavy dresses and all that!"Oscar-nominated actress Keira also said she won't be doing her Christmas shopping in Britain's famous department stores, because they "terrify" her. She told USA Today newspaper: "Department stores scare the hell out of me, they terrify me! This time of year, I can't handle it. I can't quite face the hordes of people."

PHOTOS ARE DESTROYING KEIRA KNIGHTLEY

Keira Knightley says being photographed is destroying her soul.The 'Atonement' star believes a part of her dies every time she is snapped by the paparazzi. She said: "I believe the Aborigines say that every photo takes away a bit of your soul. It's very odd but I think there's definitely some truth in that."The 22-year-old actress also revealed she is reluctant to face the camera lens because she suffers from acne.She said: "I look in the mirror and go, 'Oh no! More spots, more acne!' And I'm not comfortable being photographed when I'm being myself."Keira admits she would rather people lied to her if they think she isn't looking her best. She said in an interview with Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "I don't like people who tell me I look c**p. I think kindness is a good quality, and that doesn't always mean honesty."Keira is currently earning rave reviews for her performance in new film 'Atonement' opposite fellow British star, James McAvoy.Although she loves being an actress, Keira wishes she could be successful without the fame.She admitted: "I could definitely say that if I could possibly be an actress with the career that I've got but be completely anonymous, I'd choose that."

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY IS CONFUSED ABOUT MEN

Keira Knightley with Rupert Friend

Keira Knightley never knows when men find her attractive.The 'Atonement' star finds it impossible to tell if a man is coming on to her, and prefers guys to be "extremely blunt" about their feelings. She said: "Dating is always a difficult thing. And to tell you the truth, I'm so dim that I don't notice when a guy is coming on to me anyway. Subtlety absolutely doesn't work with me - you have to be extremely blunt."Despite her problems with men, the 22-year-old actress has been dating her 'Pride and Prejudice' co-star Rupert Friend for over a year.Although the relationship is getting serious, Keira insists she has no plans to marry Rupert any time soon.She said: "I don't want to get married in the foreseeable future. I've been married five times in films, had three children and countless proposals, so I think that's about enough really."Despite her anti-wedding stance, Keira admits she is a sucker for big romantic gestures.She said: "I think everybody likes a bit of romance, don't they? I go for simple things - flowers and chocolates, that does it for me. Maybe diamonds one day, but flowers and chocolates will suffice for the moment."

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY ON HER POOR ACTING

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY has attributed her recent poor acting performances on taking too many roles in a short period of time.The actress has been the target of critics lately who claim she "can’t act" in several of her films, but the British beauty insists it was just a case of working too much. She says, "I have had to learn a lot in a very short time. One thing is to try not to pack too much in. I went directly from playing Elizabeth Bennet in Pride & Prejudice to Domino with just a four day break, for example. It was a crazy thing to do."

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY IS RELIEVED TO MOVE ON FROM 'PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN'

Sexy actress Keira Knightley is moving on

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY is "relieved" to be taking on a new role in latest movie ATONEMENT, because it’s more of a challenge than her part in the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN series.The Pride and Prejudice actress stars alongside James McAvoy as star-crossed lovers in the movie, which is based on the Ian McEwan novel. And the English beauty is grateful for the new role, because it has more depth than that of her Pirates character, Elizabeth Swann.She tells British film magazine, Empire, "This is such a relief. Not that I don’t enjoy all that Pirates stuff, but it’s not about my character - it’s about Johnny (Depp)’s character. It’s not focusing on emotional turmoil. It’s been great just to get my brain engaged. "

JOHNNY DEPP ON KEIRA KNIGHTLEY KISS

Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp Kiss

Johnny Depp says kissing Keira Knightley was "awkward" - because she is so much younger than him.The pair shared a smooch in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest', but Johnny, 43, found it difficult to pucker up to Keira, 22, because of the big age gap between the two stars.He said in an interview with New magazine: "The smooches are always so awkward, especially because Keira and I have never been in that kind of situation together. She's, like, three and I'm a thousand!"We've known each other for a few years and suddenly it was, 'Are you ready for this?' And you just do it. It becomes more like a stunt in a way. She was a great sport about it."Keira has previously revealed she begged director Gore Verbinski to add the kiss between Captain Jack Sparrow and her character Elizabeth Swann. She said: "I was saying, 'Give me one kiss, just give me one kiss'."I got it and it was good, really good."

He told me that for someone of my body type to get to a size 12, I would have to eat a lot of s**t food, stop exercising and drink loads…"But I don’t want to have to go around eating crap and being really unhealthy in order for people to stop having a go at me."
