Screen beauty Keira Knightley has discovered the ultimate de-stressing ritual: chopping vegetables.

The slender PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN star has her own flat and is learning to cook, although she admits it isn't her strong point.

She laughs, "I usually just burn a lot.

"I'm really good at making stews though. Chopping vegetables is a very therapeutic thing."
