Knightley took on the role of Elizabeth Swan in the movie, and it was the film that catapulted the actress to superstardom. However, she believed that she would not last long in Hollywood and that she would be fired from her first role.
"I remember going to Hollywood... I had only packed a small bag because I was convinced they were going to fire me," nypost.com quoted her as saying.
"Being a teenager that's come out of sort of big blockbuster films, there was a lot of criticism. People saying, 'She's s**t, she can't act, she can't do it. What's the point? She's pouty, she's thin.' Being a teenager, you do read it all.?.?. you go, 'Oh, my God, I'm that awful'," she added.
