The notoriously reserved Keira Knightley, 29, covers Elle UK's July 2014 issue, in which she dishes about her close circle of friends, including her Atonement co-star Benedict Cumberbatch.
Just how close are the two?
Apparently, Benedict once "joke-punched" a journalist in the face for dissing Keira.
"When I saw him again, I said, 'Did you punch a journalist?' and he was like, ‘I f*cking did,'" Keira recalls to the magazine with a grin. "Everybody needs a friend like that."
Though one thing the pals probably won't be doing together?
"I hate karaoke. Like, I really, really hate it. I have to be so drunk I’m nearly about to fall down before I sing in front of anybody. It just terrifies me," she admits. "But, also, among the people you go with, there will be somebody who secretly has an amazing voice, and you're just like, 'F*ck off.'"
The beautiful actress also admits to having surprising insecurities when it comes to being out and about in public.
