Keira Knightley: I'm a real tomboy

Keira Knightley has revealed she thinks of herself as a tomboy.

The 26-year-old actress and model for Chanel is used to dressing up in glamorous frocks for the red carpet, but told Marie Claire magazine she favours more masculine style.

Keira said: "I'd go with boyish chic. Growing up I was a tomboy. I didn't wear skirts until I was 14. I hated them. I love a man's shirt."

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star was a bridesmaid at her brother's wedding recently.

She revealed: "It was wicked. But I destroyed it by the end of the night. They had Indian food and I managed to drip every single curry, and every single drink, down the front. I went to the toilet and caught it in the door. I was the worst bridesmaid ever. But it was a great night."

Keira, who began dating Klaxons star James Righton earlier this year, revealed she has plenty of male friends too.

She said: "I have a mix of both - great guy friends and girlfriends.

"I have one girlie girlfriend but I'd say my girlfriends are more boyish. And I suppose the guys aren't great jocks, they are sort of artistic and tend to be directors or writers or musicians or actors. The boys have a sensitive side."
