Keira Knightley’s paid £30k a year (THE SUN)

By GORDON SMART, Showbiz Editor

FOR an actress famous for playing posh girls, KEIRA KNIGHTLEY lives a pretty frugal life.

Accounts just released show that despite being one of the highest-earning actresses in the world, the star paid herself just £30,000 last year.

That’s a long way from her total earnings.

Keira’s firm Kck Boo Ltd banked £1.5million through her films and commercial deals with fashion firms.
And the details show she has cut down on spending outside of her salary, too.

A source said: “Keira took home £20,000 in dividends from the company in 2012 and a salary of £11,000.
“Her biggest expenditure put through the books was £41,000 on security but she spent little else.

“Her travel costs were just over £4,000 and she didn’t pay for a personal trainer, despite spending almost £1,000 on one the year before. The accounts also show that she did not shell out a penny on clothes and make-up.”

You can see how Keira avoids High Street shopping. Clothing brands and make-up firms queue up to hand her free gear.
