Anderson Slights Beautiful Knightley

X-FILES star GILLIAN ANDERSON has slighted upcoming British actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY - claiming her success is solely down to her good looks.

Despite becoming one of the most exciting prospects in Hollywood following her star turns in BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, Anderson was unimpressed by the 18-year-old's performance in the high seas romp alongside JOHNNY DEPP and ORLANDO BLOOM.

She says, "I only watched bits of that film when I was on a plane. I thought she was very, er, beautiful. That must be why she got the job in the first place."
