Keira Knightley never expected to be so famous.
The actress - who recently claimed she wants to quit acting to escape the endless attention - is surprised by how big a star she has become.
Keira, 22, said: "I never expected to have had the successes I have.
"When you're acting, you escape the real world for about two minutes at a time... I would like to escape it much more.
"There are very few people who have careers like mine, where you can actually do it a lot."
'The Pirates of the Caribbean' actress has also revealed she never reads newspapers, because she hates the way they're written.
She added: "I don't read newspapers. I don't particularly like the way they're written. I don't mean that offensively, I just don't like them."
