Keira wasn’t sure about Pirates

NEW YORK: Keira Knightley acknowledges she was a bit skeptical at first about appearing in a movie that shared a name with a Disney ride.

Knightley says that it wasn’t until she was at the premiere of the first Pirates movie with co-star Orlando Bloom that she knew the premise would work.

“Orlando and I were sitting next to each other at the premiere, which was the first time I’d seen it, and we’d had a big talk and decided that if it was awful, we’d still leave the theatre all smiles,” she said. “Halfway through the film, I nudged him and said, ‘It’s quite good, isn’t it?’ and he was like ‘Yeah, it’s really good.’ We had no idea it would work.”
