Knightley named the UK's sexiest woman

THE actress Keira Knightley was named Britain's sexiest woman yesterday.

The star of Pride and Prejudice fought off competition from Abi Titmuss, Sienna Miller and Kelly Brook to win the accolade from Esquire magazine.

Her "perfect" looks and laid-back attitude helped her scoop more than a third of votes in the online poll for the publication.

Knightley's 35 per cent share of the vote was more than double that of runner-up Miller, who attracted 17 per cent. Knightley also left several other high-profile stars in the shade, including the Dr Who actress Billie Piper, television presenter Cat Deeley and pop singer Rachel Stevens.

Tim Lewis, deputy editor of Esquire, said it was not just Knightley's looks that sets pulses racing.

He said: "I think the thing that people like about Keira is that she seems very relaxed and normal.

"She is grown-up but not too grown-up, and she is fun. She almost has a model look. She has an astonishing face; it is almost perfect.

"You can imagine yourself hanging around with her. I don't think she takes the whole celebrity thing too seriously."

Knightley, who is best known for her breakthrough roles in Bend it Like Beckham and the popular Pirates of the Caribbean, is currently filming sequels in what will be a Pirates of the Caribbean series, the first of which is due for release next summer.
