Hollywood actress Keira Knightley hates the celebrity party circuit and is determined to shun it throughout her career.
The Jacket actress is thrilled with her soaring popularity among directors, but insists she loathes her celebrity status and finds parties boring.
She says, "I don't like parties much - I'm not a very social being.
"And the whole celebrity aspect of this job is never what I aspired to. I don't mind it when people recognise me in the street - though it's a bit weird when they know me and I don't know them."
