Hollywood A-list bombshell Keira Knightley has revealed a surprising amount of passion for Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville.

The former Manchester United star is not known for his ability to attract the world's best looking celebrities but he became the envy of millions of men following Knightley's bizarre admission.

Pirates of the Caribbean star is known to be a huge fan of football and is one of many stars who claim to support West Ham, which also boast fan-ship from the likes of Ray Winston, Russell Brand and Katy Perry.

But instead of falling for West Ham favourites like Mark Noble and Winston Reid, Knightley has revealed that her favourite football icon is none other than the former Manchester United right-back Gary Neville.

Quoted in the Daily Mail, Knightley said of Neville's commentary: "He is just f****** amazing! Absolutely f****** amazing! 

"His commentary...Well, it's just amazing. He's amazing."

However, she shot down Neville's wildest dreams when she admitted that her love for the pundit was purely down to his work in football.

When asked if she had a crush on the Red Devils legend, she said: "No! Football is basically the reason I got a television.

"I didn't have one before because I didn't know where I was going to be, so there was no point.

"Now I have one because it was getting ridiculous watching football on the laptop."
