Knightley: 'I Knew I Wouldn't Win Oscar'

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY admits she didn't have a 'hope in hell' of winning the Best Actress Oscar for her role in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. The actress shocked Hollywood when she was nominated for the prestigious prize at the age of 20. If she had won and beaten other nominees REESE WITHERSPOON, JUDI DENCH, CHARLIZE THERON and FELICITY HUFFMAN she would have been the youngest ever winner. Witherspoon won - and Knightley insists she wasn't surprised. She says, "I knew I didn't have a hope in hell - my dad went to the bookmaker and the best odds he could find were 33 -1. He put a fiver on anyway!"

Haha! That's funny. I was rooting for her, but Reese did deserve it as well. Better luck next time!
