Knightley Fears She's Past It

Actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY is petrified of being outshone by new, younger stars and feels she may have passed her prime, despite being only 20.

The DOMINO actress shot to stardom at 14 when she played SABE in STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE and has since starred in a number of high-profile films including PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and PRIDE AND PREJUDICE.

Despite her superstar status, the pretty brunette fears the height of her film career may be coming to an end.

She says, "One magazine called another young actress 'The next Keira Knightly' and I'm thinking, 'Hold on, am I past my prime already? I'm only 20 years old'."

This girl has some seious self esteem issues! She should do what the Americans do best....get a therapist! She has so much self doubt about herself and her abilities. She is Twenty years old for god sake! She needs a Life! Half the poor and sick people in this world would love to trade her for their problems I'm sure! Maybe she needs to see the underpriveledged first hand. Keira, go to India, Africa or any number of third world countries and see how the other half lives! or DIES at the age of 20
