Keira Knightley Talks Football Pundits And Code Breaking

Keira.jpg
 
Keira Knightley is the sort of woman you want to grab a beer with. Two in fact. Possibly three, or, at the very least, enough to get you through 90 minutes plus added time.
 
Because aside from being fiercely intelligent and possessing all the magnetising virtues you’d expect from a Hollywood starlet, Knightley holds something of a soft spot for Gary Neville – that bastion of no-nonsense football analysis often holding court on a Monday night.
 
And G-Nev would certainly be a fool not to count himself as a fan of hers. Knightley's latest performance, in Oscar-buzzed biopic The Imitation Game as a wartime code breaker who joins Benedict Cumberbatch’s Alan Turing in cracking the enigma code, might well be her finest performance yet.
 
So naturally, when we sat down to chat, we decided to ask which other pundits she’s taken to-heart, on the off chance she’d ever dreamed of producing her own football show. Turns out she was arguably more excitable on the subject than we were, reeling off a list of names, some of which may surprise you. We'll even forgive her for including Gary's brother.
 
The Imitation Game is in cinemas nationwide from 14 November
