Keira wants to be a bricklayer


Keira Knightley has revealed that she is looking into a career in bricklaying.

The 19-year-old, who is paid around 1.5 million per movie, thinks that the career change would be a "positive experience" should her film work dry up.

"Everyone laughs when I say I'm looking into bricklaying. But I decided if an apocalypse ever comes I'd like to be a skilled labourer and not be left behind at a campfire making gruel," she said.

"My friend's looking for a job and we found out you can get 15 to 30 an hour for bricklaying. I've found the courses and the moment I have some spare time I want to do it. I'm sure i can find a positive experience in laying bricks."

Knightley is currently filming Domino reports Digitalspy.
