Keira wanted fame later in life

Keira Knightley says she regrets finding fame so early.

Keira's first movie was Bend It Like Beckham when she was 17.

She told Eclipse magazine: "My father says: 'I wish this had happened in five years' time, you could have been 20 and got really p***** and slept with loads of people and no one would have known.' "

"That would have been great."

"It's like you've got to be perfect. Holding any 20-year-old up as a role model is completely idiotic. I think that's b******s."
