Oscar-nominee Keira Knightley has dismissed rumours she is moving to Los Angeles - insisting she is too settled in London.

The PRIDE + PREJUDICE star, who will contest the Best Actress Academy Award next month (MAR06), claims she would hate to be so far away from her family and friends.

She says, "I've no plans to live in America - I'm a London girl. I would never leave.

"I'm 20 and my family and my friends are there, and a lot of work for me comes from there - and I get the p**s taken out of me there much more than anywhere else!"
