Hollywood superstar says former United star is 'absolutely amazing' in new role as TV pundit
Hollywood hottie Keira Knightley yesterday revealed that she's a huge fan of former Manchester United footballer-turned-TV pundit Gary Neville.
The 28-year-old actress, who has starred in hit flicks like Bend it like Beckham, Atonement, Anna Karenina, Pirates of the Caribbean, among others, will have a massive fan-following of her own, but she, in turn idolises Neville.
In fact, she likes the TV commentator so much that she has bought a new TV to watch him.
"He is just fu****g amazing. Absolutely fu****g amazing. His commentary... it's just amazing. He's amazing. They've added loads of other pundits alongside him now, but I preferred it when it was pure Gary Neville," Keira told the Fashion Telegraph.

Keira even got into trouble for not having a TV licence, that is mandatory in the UK. "Football is the reason I got a TV. I didn't have one before... and I got hounded by the TV licence people. I'm like, 'I don't have a f****** TV licence because I don't have a TV! Please come in and see that I don't have one'," she explained.
Meanwhile, Keira's comments have gone down very well with Neville, who retweeted a link to her story with an interesting hashtag —#benditlikeneville.
