Creator / Keira Knightley

"Apparently on the Internet I'm a tomboy beanpole? I can't use a computer, so maybe I'm a bit out of the loop. I don't know whether to be flattered or not flattered. The beanpole bit, is that good? Can you be a sexy beanpole?"

Keira Christina Knightley (born March 26, 1985) is a British actress who became subject to international recognition for her roles in Bend It Like Beckham (2002) and Pirates of the Caribbean (2003), followed by two sequels. She has since starred in a number of feature films, theater productions, and modeling campaigns.

Knightley's first role was in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace playing Natalie Portman's character's decoy/body double, and they continue to share a strong resemblance.
