Keira is no gym bunny

Keira Knightley “f**king hates” going to the gym.

The actress is known for being super slim and is used to wearing tight corsets, as she’s often cast in period dramas.

However, she rarely makes time for the gym and is lucky not to have to worry about slipping into her onscreen costumes.

“I f**king hate working out,” she admitted to the British edition of OK! magazine.

“But I’m very cyclical. Cleaning my house is the first step. The next step might be that I find a book I like and then I might be able to get back to the gym. It’s all a process. But I will get back into it.”

Keira, 29, admits that she’s prone to procrastinating and fears her own laziness. However, she can usually count on herself to buck up her ideas.

“Normally it’s my own inner self, because I can get to some place where I’m completely depressed,” she explained when asked what motivates her. “And it’s usually because I’ve been doing absolutely nothing.”

Keira has been branching out from period dramas and her latest movie venture is contemporary musical movie Begin Again.

She also appeared in action flick Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and loved the low-maintenance nature of it.

“It was a thrill and it meant I didn’t have to come in as early in the morning [for make-up], which was lovely,” she laughed.

“I got much more sleep than I normally do when I’m working.”
