Wafer-thin Keira Knightley has revealed she now feels 'more comfortable' with her fragile figure after employing a personal trainer to build up some muscle.
After years of banner headlines about her size zero figure, Knightley has finally conceded she did at one point look 'scrawny'.
'Now I work out once a week with this woman, who's great – I need a drill sergeant standing next to me to make me do things,' she said.
Her confession came after her own mother went public to deny the 23-year-old was anorexic after a string of frighteningly thin appearances.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean actress has revealed during a break from a manic filming schedule that she had hired a personal trainer to bulk up.
Knightley said: 'Until this year, I've worked pretty constantly and I think you get to the point where you just need to stop for a minute.'
She added: 'I hadn't worked out for about a year. A friend bought me a few sessions with a personal trainer for Christmas, so I've stuck to it.
Before the trainer, I think I'd lost weight if anything. I lost muscle, so I looked scrawny. I don't know if it has changed anything, but it did make me feel good.'
The actress also launched another one of her now famous rants about the media.
'I've only ever caught the worst things written about me. I've never seen anything good,' she complained. Read the full interview in Glamour magazine out now.
