Hollywood beauty Keira Knightley underwent an agonising training routine to get into shape for forthcoming blockbuster KING ARTHUR - but lost her breasts as a result.

The movie's producers ordered the 19-year-old to spend two to three hours in the gym each day, followed by weightlifting, bocing, horse-riding, archery lessons and sword fighting in order to be convincing as warrior queen GUINEVERE.

And, while Knightley became extremely fit, she also noticed her breasts shrinking.

She says, "I went up a whole dress size and it was all muscle. But my breasts just disappeared.

"I've stopped working out since then - and now they're back."
