Keira Knightley accompanied her London Boulevard co-star Ray Winstone to a football match, and he’s said he was impressed with her ladette attitude.
The British actress had her big break in football film Bend It Like Beckham and, while she is now seen as a glamorous Hollywood star, Ray revealed to Zoo magazine: “Keira is a big football fan, and loves getting into the spirit at matches.”
He went on: “Keira’s a West Ham fan as well, which I love.
“She came to a game with me once. We went with all the boys and she had jellied eels and cockles and all that – pie and mash, too. She is a rank West Ham fan.”
Like Keira, Ray has had a lot of success in Hollywood but he insists he would never move to America.
He said: “I like the US and enjoy working there, but it’d be like living above a shop. I’m an Englishman and I live in England. It’s great to work in the sun, but there’s nothing like the green fields when the wind is in your face and you have to put your overcoat on. It’s crazy, but I do look forward to putting my overcoat on.”
