Benedict Cumberbatch punches journalist for Keira Knightley

Jun 5 2014, 2:20pm CDT | by

Benedict Cumberbatch once "joke-punched" a journalist for bad-mouthing Keira Knightley.

The 'Atonement' star defended his stunning co-star by lashing out after a member of the press reportedly said something rude about her at an event.

Speaking in the July issue of ELLE UK magazine, Keira recalled: "When I saw him [Benedict] again, I said, 'Did you punch a journalist?' and he was like, 'I f***ing did.' Everybody needs a friend like that."

Despite her budding friendship with Benedict, 37, one thing the pals won't be doing together is karaoke as the 29-year-old actress hates singing in front of people.

She explained: "I hate karaoke. Like, I really, really hate it. I have to be so drunk I'm nearly about to fall down before I sing in front of anybody. It just terrifies me.

"But, also, among the people you go with, there will be somebody who secretly has an amazing voice, and you're just like, 'F*ck off.'"

As well as her hate for public singing, the brunette beauty also has insecurities when she's out and about doing her every day routine because she gives off a "bad energy".

She said: "I have an on/off switch and, when I'm doing publicity, I'm absolutely OK, but when I'm not working and people come up to me, I've not got the head on to handle that. I don't give off a nice energy and that makes me still feel awkward. I think it's dreams and fantasies. People want you to be a specific kind of person and if, in the flesh, you're not, that can be tremendously disappointing."

Nov 4 2014 10:40am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

Keira Knightley covers the latest issue of The Edit (net-a-porter’s in-house online magazine), likely to promote The Imitation Game. Funnily enough, she doesn’t mention the film at all. Great promotion, Keira!! But it’s still a nice piece because Keira seemed to be in a funny, brassy kind of mood and she wanted to talk about feminism and Hollywood and sex. You can read the full profile here and here are some highlights: She doesn’t believe in fa ...

Keira Knightley Hates Fairy Tales: Why Should You “Wait For Some F*cking Dude To Rescue You?”

Oct 31 2014 3:48pm CDT | Source: Gossip Cop

(Getty Images) Keira Knightley has no use for fairy tales. She tells The Edit, “I left them behind. Why should you be told to wait for some f***ing dude to rescue you?” It’s part of the actress’ larger reaction to Hollywood double standards and gender inequality. She explains, “The people who make movies, whether it’s directors or producers or money people, look for things they can identify with, and if they’re all predominantly middle-aged white men, then what you see are things that middle ...

Duchess Kate & her family could get a private screening of ‘The Imitation Game’

Oct 13 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Did you guys see this People Magazine article a few days ago? It’s all about whether People Mag should refer to The Artist Formerly Known as Kate Middleton as “Princess Kate” or “Duchess Kate” or “Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge” or whatever. We’ve had that debate so many times before. Back in 2011, just after William and Kate got married, I made the editorial decision to refer to her as “Duchess Kate” in headlines, even though that’s not the real royal title style. Her real ti ...
