London, June 24 (IANS) Actress Keira Knightley, who recently got engaged to musician James Righton, wants to improve her culinary skills, and she has turned to her mother for guidance.
"I'm an alright cook. Not brilliant, but alright. My mum's a really good cook, but we had a really small kitchen, so she could never actually teach me any of the stuff that she made. But now she's starting to," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Knightley as saying.
"I've gotten really good recipes, which are excellent. I'm good at, like, a one-pot dish. It's the timing. I always walk away at a wrong point. And then everything burns! But stews and curries, I'm good at that," she added,
Knightley also revealed she doesn't have many celebrity friends, whom she could call during a crisis.
Asked what famous people she would call if the world was coming to an end, she said: "I don't have celebrity friends like that. I mean, I have ones that I'd kind of call up to say, 'Hello, how are you? How is everything going?' But no, my friends aren't actors."
