British actress Keira Knightley refuses to move to Los Angeles, because the city drives her crazy.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL star has become an overnight sensation in Hollywood, but is quick to quash speculation she might leave her native London for Tinseltown.

The 18-year-old says, "The city is not for me. When I was there for a long period for the first time, my brain turned to mush.

"I went on a ridiculous shopping trip and bought loads of clothes that didn't fit. It was a catastrophe.

"I even had pedicures and manicures - something that's not my style at all. My friends would kill me if they knew."
