Keira Knightley hates being pursued by the paparazzi - because it ruins her social life.
The Atonement actress is well-known for her distaste of snappers who try and secure photos of her personal life.
And the star has admitted her pals fail to invite her to social events in case they are harassed by eager photographers.
She tells Britain's Tatler magazine, "One of them (friends) asked me if I would mind not going out with them to a restaurant one evening as they find the whole paparazzi thing alarming.
"I don't blame them. It can be very intimidating."
