Keira Knightley would get drunk if world was ending

Keira Knightley would get drunk if she knew the world was going to end.

The 27-year-old actress admits she would much rather ‘drink an awful lot’ before her time on earth was over rather than be sober in an attempt to forget what is going on around her.

Speaking at the Los Angeles Film Festival for the premiere of her latest comedy movie ‘Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World’ – which sees Dodge (Steve Carell) search for his high school sweetheart accompanied by Penny (Keira) when the pair learn the apocalypse is imminent – she said: ‘I’d drink an awful lot, I wouldn’t want to be sober at the end of time.’

As well as getting intoxicated, Kiera admits she would be so ‘terrified’ of how much pain she would be in if a giant asteroid landed on the planet that the brunette beauty would hide in the corner of her room and break down in tears.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: ‘I’d hide in a corner and cry! I think! You know, we sort of went through all those kind of, ‘What’s on your list?’ Like would you jump out of a plane? Would you go to an orgy? Would you take lots of drugs?

‘Honestly, if someone said a meteor is going to destroy the earth in 20 days, I think I’d be so preoccupied with whether it was going to hurt or not that I’d just be terrified! And in a corner.’
