British actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY’s family and friends have banned her from reading newspapers because she finds it hard to control her temper while leafing through them.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star admits she gets “incredibly angry” when reporters write opinionated news pieces.
She tells American magazine Elle, “I’m a moody bastard. Actually, I’ve been banned from reading newspapers because the way they’re written angers me so much. If I want an opinion, I’ll read the opinion part of the newspaper. I do not want it when I’m trying to get the facts.
“I get incredibly angry. It really f**ks me off. See, I have to calm down about it.”
And Knightley becomes particular irate when reading about herself.
She adds, “What I hate is that they shove in your face – this is what you want to be. And you think, ‘F**k that. I don’t want it. Stop telling me I want to look like her. Stop telling me I want that life.’ I don’t.”
