Keira Knightley's guitar experience

Love Actually star can pretend to play the guitar, it seems.
Great deals on musical instruments
Pirates of the Caribbean actress Keira Knightley might have the skills to pretend to play a guitar, but when it comes to producing music she could still have some progress to make, it seems!

"I'm good enough to fake playing a guitar. I'm not necessarily good enough to actually play the guitar," the star has said light heartedly in a BBC Newsbeat chat on the subject of her latest film.

In her time, Knightley has been seen in the likes of Never Let Me Go, period piece The Duchess, comedy Love Actually and Ian McEwen novel adaptation Atonement.

She's about to hit screen as Anna Karenina in a movie version of the novel of that name.

The actress has also talked, with a laugh, about not enjoying singing in her BBC chat.

She said that neither dancing nor singing were 'strong points' for her – though she does do much of the former in the part of Karenina.

"I'm good enough to fake both of them so that's fine," she added.
