Sexy actress Keira Knightley nearly killed a horse with a bow and arrow during preparations for her next movie.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL star was training for her part as QUEEN GUINEVERE in King Arthur when the incident happened.

She says, "I went to knight boot camp. You get up at 6am, ride horses and run around a field.

"I also did sword fighting, a bit of boxing and archery - but I almost killed a horse. It popped up from behind a hedge and I nearly took it out."
