Keira Knightley hates going to parties.
The actress - who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in 2005 movie 'Pride and Prejudice' - says despite her profession, she hates the partying lifestyle that comes with it.
She said: "I don't like showbiz bashes very much. I'm not sociable and I seldom, if ever, set foot in any London clubs. I went to Vanity Fair magazine's post-Oscars party last year but I just stood in the corner, drinking champagne. I have very few real showbusiness friends."
Keira also revealed her biggest extravagance stems from her love of beautiful footwear.
She added: "If I see a pair of shoes that I adore and they haven't got them in my size, I still have to have them. My boyfriend Rupert Friend and I just bought a house together in Richmond, Surrey, and it might not have a lot of furniture but it's got a lot of my shoes!"
