Knightley Modest About Bifa Success

British actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY gracefully accepted the award for Variety UK Personality Of The Year at the British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) last night (30NOV05), insisting she still doesn't feel like a star.

The PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and DOMINO actress, 20, admits she got a huge kick out of performing in such diverse films but feels undeserving of her success, joking that her pretty face probably swayed the judges.

She jests, "It's all about my personality and nothing to do with the way I look.

"I still don't feel like a star. But it's lovely to be in a couple of films that people have liked so much. That's what you make films for.

"So it's nice to have a few that people have liked. I don't think you can ask for anything more."

Variety's executive editor STEPHEN GAYDOS adds, "There's no brighter star in the world today than Keira Knightley, who's gone in a few short years from breakout success in BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM to blockbuster hits."

Quite frankly, there is NO other actress in the world today that deserves success more than Keira!!!She is absolutely 'NUTS' to feel undeserving of her success, not to mention amazingly modest!!!If this should ever get back to you Keira, you make us proud to be British!!!
