Keira Knightley had to undergo hours of gruelling training each day in order to get in shape for her new movie King Arthur.

THE PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL beauty bulked up her slight frame to play heroine GUINEVERE in the epic.

But, as Knightley explains, it was not all down to her: "I had to do one-and-a-quarter hours of boxing and weights every day, on top of swordfighting lessons. But I'm such a lazy f***er. If someone isn't standing over me going, 'You will lift this!', I won't do it, and I haven't since I stopped filming which was, oooh, two months ago."
