Keira Knightley certainly has a knight in shining armour in Benedict Cumberbatch after he defended her when a film critic insulted her acting.
The actress told Elle magazine that Cumberbatch punched journalist Mark Kermode who described her as 'Ikea Knightley' - implying that she was wooden.
The 29-year-old said: "When I saw him (Benedict) again, I said 'Did you punch a journalist?' and he was like, 'I f***ing did'. Everybody needs a friend like that."
The incident happened a few years ago and even the journalist joked about it in a story in the Metro and later again on Twitter.
In the interview he said: "An actor very gently punched me on air for saying something about Keira Knightley. I called her Ikea Knightley as her acting was so wooden."
The actress was praised for recycling her wedding dress on numerous occasions. However she recently revealed a friend split red wine all over the Chanel number. Devastating, huh?! Well apparently not, Keira was just happy it had been a good night. Speaking about the incident she said: "It's quite impressively splattered. But, hey, a good night is a good night and when a dress has had its time, maybe it's had its time!"
