'Pride and Prejudice' star Keira Knightley says she was not a fan of music as a teenager.

The 27-year-old star, who is engaged to wed Klaxons rocker James Righton, said she shunned music because she found boybands offensive and only began to appreciate them when she entered her twenties.

"It's a really weird one. I remember I actively didn't listen to music through my teenage years. I remember being 11 and my friends suddenly got into music, and me still wanting to play, like play make-believe, and suddenly I was supposed to be listening to boybands and I found it really offensive.

"I thought it was literally the fault of the boybands. So I didn't listen to music until my early or mid-twenties and I was like, 'Oh, I get it, this is great'," she said.
