The actress is a West Ham fan

Keira Knightley loves watching football on TV.

The actress, who found fame in 2002 film Bend It Like Beckham, is a West Ham supporter and admits she only invested in a telly to get her footie fix.

‘Football is basically the reason I got a television,’ says Keira, 29.

‘I didn’t have one before, because I didn’t know where I was going to be, so there was no point. And I got hounded by the TV licence people.

‘I’m like, “I don’t have a f*cking TV licence because I don’t have a TV! Please come in and see that I don’t have one!”

‘But now I have one because it was getting ridiculous watching football on the laptop.’

Keira‘s also become fond of cooking competition MasterChef and finds it quite moving.

‘I love MasterChef. It makes me cry,’ the pretty brunette tells Stella Magazine.

‘Oh my God, it’s just so f*cking emotional. It means so much to them. I get to the end and I weep. I just f*cking love it.’
