Keira Knightley dismisses anorexia rumor

LONDON, July 5 (UPI) -- "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Keira Knightley dismissed rumors that she has an eating disorder at the European premiere of the new pirates sequel.

At the premiere of "Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" in London Knightley said, "Whatever people say about my weight, they are all wrong," reported Wednesday.


Knightley also revealed earlier this week that members of her family had suffered from the eating disorder, anorexia, but said that she does not.

"They said to me, 'How does it feel to be called anorexic?' and I had no idea that I was. I can safely say that I'm not," she said, adding that, "I've got a lot of experience with anorexia -- my grandmother and great-grandmother suffered from it, and I had a lot of friends at school who suffered from it, so I know it's not something to be taken lightly and I don't."

"Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" opens Friday.
