Keira is greatest ever starlet

Keira Knightley is the greatest ever movie starlet, according to a recent poll. The Pirates of The Carribean' actress was voted top ahead of Wizard of oz’ star Judy Garland and fellow blonde Scarlett Johansson. The 21-year-old rose to fame for her role in Bend It Like Beckham' and has already been nominated for an oscar for her role as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride And Prejudice’. The survey by Yahoo! Entertainment asked 1,600 movie fans to name their favourite starlets. A poll spokesperson says, “A starlet is an actress who people instantly think of as being young, vivacious, stylish, popular and – most of all – talented. Scarlett may be the talk of Tinseltown but it’s Keira’s class that leads the pack.” The rest of the top eight included Natalie Portman, Shirley Temple, Lindsay Lohan, Brooke Shields and oia Farrow.
