Culinary Dunce Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley can't cook.

The 'Atonement' actress - who is currently making her stage debut with Damian Lewis in 'The Misanthrope' in London - hopes Santa Claus brings her some cookbooks this Christmas because she needs to learn how to make more than one dish.

She said: "I am not the best cook in the world. I have tried but I really am hopeless. I can cook maybe one dish. But even then, if you ate it you'd probably end up with food poisoning. This is why I will ask Santa for some easy-to-understand cook books."

The 24-year-old screen beauty has tried to cook for boyfriend Rupert Friend - who she has been dating since 2005 when they met on the set of 'Pride and Prejudice' - but it has often ended in disaster.

She said: "Recently, a friend was teaching me how to make an eggplant bake. I brought it out of the oven in this beautiful bowl - and dropped it. It smashed all over the kitchen, and I burst into tears."
