After her swashbuckling turns in Pirates Of The Caribbean and King Arthur, there's little doubt that Keira Knightley is a force to be reckoned with. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that she has taken victory in our poll for the movie industry's most promising teen star.

Nearly 20,000 of you logged on to vote on whether Keira Knightley or Scarlett Johansson was a hotter talent. And the British actress has romped home the winner, with 62 per cent of the vote.

Despite being number one in the popularity stakes, Keira insists she has little in common with the heroic characters she plays. "I'm rather lazy and the idea that they keep casting me in these very strong and very active roles is actually rather difficult for me," she admits.

But we can expect to see more of her sword-wielding skills in the not too distant future, because the 19-year-old will soon reprise her role as Elizabeth in the Pirates Of The Caribbean sequel.
