Star wants to stay at home and cook for a while

Keira Knightley has not signed up for any more movies because she wants to chill out at her London home.

‘It’s been a strange year as far as films go,’ she says. ‘With the writers’ strike in Hollywood, a lot of financing has fallen through.

‘So I’m going to sit in my flat, read books and cook. I don’t have a TV and I don’t like to shop.’

But The Duchess actress, 23, doesn’t want to turn her back on her profession for good.

‘You stand on sets and think it’s a ridiculous thing to do for a living,’ she tells the Daily Star.

‘Then you get caught up in it with people who absolutely love trying to create great stories.’
