British star Keira Knightley bribed security guards to let ticketless friends into the pre-Golden Globes Vanity Fair party - with packets of crisps.

The DOMINO star turned up at the event on Monday (16JAN06) with seven friends, including her agent, despite only having two invites.

She says, "What's a girl to do? I gave the security guys my best smile and confessed that there were eight of us and only two tickets.

"They said to me, 'What else you got?' and I said, 'Well, we've got two packets of crisps,' and they said, 'OK, that'll do.'

"So we wafted into the poshest party of the night with two packets of ready salted."
