1 1 DREAMY KNIGHTLEY

Oct 25 2003

Pirate beauty Keira is sexiest film star

By Steven Ventura

PIRATES of the Caribbean beauty Keira Knightley is Britain's sexiest female film star.

The rising actress whose mother grew up in Ayrshire first shot to fame as Queen Amidala's handmaiden in Star Wars: Episode I.

The 19-year-old won more fans in Bend It like Beckham before starring with Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in the swashbuckling Disney hit.

But dishy Bloom lost out as Britain's sexiest film star to Bridget Jones hero Colin Firth, who won female hearts as Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice.

More mature sex symbols Alan Rickman, Sean Connery and Sean Bean also made the top five in the poll of 4500 people by internet provider Tiscali.

Firth's Bridget Jones co-star, Hugh Grant, Irish stars Colin Farrell and Liam Neeson, and Scots Robert Carlyle and Ewan McGregor also won places.

Richard Ayers, editor of tiscali.co.uk, said: ``It was great to see a scrap between the older fans of Firth, fighting offthe teenage hordes of whipper-snapper Orlando.

``It was a triumph of sensual seniority over youthful exuberance.''

Surprisingly, cinema darling Catherine Zeta Jones did not make the list of top British screen sirens.

Kate Winslet came second, followed by Rachel Weisz and Liz Hurley, known more for her dresses than her acting.
