Keira did her own stunts for At World’s End

As in the previous two outings, At World’s End promises plenty of action and though tiny-framed Keira says the latest film was one of her most physically demanding to term, she additionally insisted on doing most of her own stunt work.

“This film is definitely a little bit darker and there are some really great fight scenes,” she says gleefully. “I didn’t precisely insist on the fight scenes but I did ask for them for my character in the first movie. I kept saying, ‘I want a sword’ and they never gave me one, so in that one they gave me two, which is great!” she laughs.

Pity that despite her deft swordplay, the hardy star has come under fierce attack from critics who say her slender physique encourages anorexia in young girls.

MTV doesnt want a Diaz-Biel catfight!

MTV is trying hard to keep apart Cameron Diaz and Jessica Biel (Justin Timberlake’s ex-girlfriend and present girlfriend that is).

Both are presenting awards and Justin Timberlake - Diaz’s ex who is now dating Biel - has been nominated for Best Breakthrough Performance for his movie Alpha Dog.

Organisers are worried the two women could become confrontational whether their paths cross.

An insider told the New York Post newspaper: “Everyone is determined to keep Cameron and Jessica far apart. It’s becoming a big deal considering the girls both want separate arrival times.

“Nobody knows who Cameron is going to bring, whether anyone. But whether Jessica walks in with Justin, Cameron will want to bring a moment. whether Jessica goes alone, Cameron will probably walk alone. It’s a mess.”

Diaz lost her temper at Prince’s Golden Globes after-party in January and had a furious row with Justin after she saw him canoodling with Jessica shortly after their split.

The source added: “Cameron is used to being more high-profile than Jessica. But now that Jessica’s dating Justin, she has more leverage. Cameron’s looking a little unstable lately.”

‘Charlie’s Angels’ star Diaz is now dating magician Criss Angel

Keira Knightley’s smash hits!

Keira Knightley likes to smash glasses when she is angry.

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star says having a glass-throwing tantrum calms her down when she is upset.

Keira believes she inherited her raging temper from her father, actor Will Knightley.

She told Hello! magazine: “I am like my father. I have ‘the Knightley streak’. He gets angry at inanimate objects. I find it therapeutic to throw glasses even whether you have to spend the rest of the night on your hands and knees collecting pieces of glass.

“Whether you are frustrated, sad or drunk it works. It takes the anger away.”

Keira, 22, additionally admits she is “a bit of a drama queen” and feels constantly insecure.

The actress - who recently confessed to be envious of The Gossip singer Beth Ditto’s full figure - said:

“Look up insecurity in the dictionary, ‘For insecurity, see Keira Knightley.’ Constant insecurities. But I’m 22 and my body is alright at the moment. It’s not going to get much better. I know I might as well compose the most of it.”

Keira is currently starring as Elizabeth Swann in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End’. The adventure movie has been a worldwide box office smash, taking $401 million since its global opening last Wednesday

Keira Knightley relieved to get by Elizabeth Swann!

Keira Knightley is “relieved” to be taking on a new role in latest movie Atonement, considering 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, considering it has more depth than that of her Pirates character, Elizabeth Swann.

She tells British film magazine Empire, “that 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.”
