Knightley Left Waiting

British actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY found herself waiting at the back of a long line to get on DISNEY WORLD's PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ride - even though she stars in the film it's based on.

The stunning actress, 18, was virtually unknown in America before she hit screens in the box office success alongside JOHNNY DEPP and ORLANDO BLOOM. And she learned just how much more her celebrity status needed to rise when staff manning the lines at the popular Florida tourist attraction failed to recognise her.

She recalls, "I said, 'Listen, I'm doing the film.' And they're like, 'Yeah, get to the back of the line!' I couldn't pull any strings."
