Knightley's Near-death Cow Experience
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY had to run for her life during a stroll in the English countryside, when a stampeding herd of cattle threatened to trample her to death.
The actress was on a break between scenes on the set of period movie The Duchess when the angry cattle attacked - and she was grateful to escape with her life.
Knightley says, "I went for a walk in where we were staying and I turned around and an entire herd of cows were running at me down a hill. I've never run so fast in my life. I actually managed to vault this incredibly high stone wall.
"Death by cow would be a really bad way to go. They weren't even bulls, they were dairy cows."
