Keira Knightley youngest star on Forbes list
Keira Knightley is the youngest Hollywood actress to appear on the Forbes ‘most bankable stars’ list.
The 23-year-old earned her place in the list thanks to her role as Elizabeth Swann in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, which have grossed $2.6 billion at the worldwide box office.
The top 100 ‘most bankable stars’ list is determined by factors such as box office success, a star’s ability to attract financing and guarantee cinema distribution, and whether or not their name alone is enough to pull in film fans.
Keira came 42nd in the 14,000-strong list.
Will Smith was number one on the list, with one film producer saying: ‘He has shown, time and again, that, in today’s world, regardless of the material, people want to watch Will Smith.’
