    Keira Knightley Dismisses Weight Criticism

    Denying that she may have mimicked the Tinseltown trend to become too skinny, a waif-like Keira Knightley told reporters at London's premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest on Monday night: "Whatever people say about my weight they are all wrong."

    Defending her appearance, the 21-year-old told PEOPLE, "Hollywood is all about the way you look, and I don't think that's the healthy thing for anyone. But, if you're strong and comfortable with yourself, then you're going to be fine."

    On Tuesday she addressed the rumors again, saying she was surprised by the suggestion that she had an eating disorder. "(The press) said to me yesterday 'How does it feel to be called anorexic?' and I had no idea that I was," Knightley told the Associated Press. "I'm not saying there aren't people in the film industry that suffer from it, because I am sure that there are. But I'm quite sure I don't have it."

    The questions about her health came up at the premiere when Knightley showed off her rail thin figure in a low-cut, backless bronze Gucci dress.

    Still, she said there's nothing to worry about. "I've got a lot of experience with anorexia my grandmother and great-grandmother suffered from it, and I had a lot of friends at school who suffered from it," Knightley said. "I know it's not something to be taken lightly and I don't."

    Adorned in vintage Cartier jewelry, Knightley said at the London premiere that was happy to be back in her hometown. "We had such a good response in the U.S., but I'm a London girl so it's always special to do a premiere here," she told PEOPLE.

    For his part, Pirates star Johnny Depp was decked out in a fedora and sunglasses to keep his cool in the uncharacteristically hot London. He greeted fans and signed autographs for more than an hour.

    Costar Orlando Bloom was also at the Pirates premiere. Press reports say he couldn't help himself, and peeked down the front of Knightley's gown, which opened to her belly button. "I haven't flashed anyone yet," she joked.

    Among the other stars sighted: singer Charlotte Church, dealing with the heat in a white sundress and flip-flops, and Mischa Barton, sporting a blue baby-doll dress.

    Orlando looked awful in London. Seriously. Find a picture. He had his hair down, and it all frizzed out. It made me laugh

    SHE did, but the bride-in-the-attic dress didn't. That Gucci dress is amazing, I would've fainted if I saw that in person.

    I think the Chanel dress was way nicer than the Gucci one...and her hair was so much nicer at the DL premiere

    I just saw a piece about the London premiere on the news...
    Johnny looked classy...as always
    Orlando was in a suit...but his hair was all messy...
    And personally i think Keira looked so much better at the DL premiere...imo she looked quite 'messy' at London

    I've always thought Kiera was too thin, but that has more to do with my preference for women that have actualy womanly bodies rather than fear for her physical well-being.

    I spent a good part of my life as a stick figure and, boy and I glad that part is over. Not that I wouldn't like to get ride of some of the excess, but I'd NEVER want to be super thin again.

    The Charlotte/Kiera/Tom Vanity Fair cover told a lot about what people fine attractive. Personally, Charlotte wins hands down.
