Since Knightley appeared as the decoy to Portman's QUEEN AMIDALA in STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE, the British actress is constantly confused for the Israeli-born LEON star.
According to reports on the set of the sci-fi prequel, their own mothers couldn't tell the two apart once they were in costume.
But Keira takes it in good humour: "Natalie Portman's a gorgeous girl so it's great. Maybe I'd have a problem if somebody said to me, 'Wow you look like Jim Carrey'
"I actually bumped into Natalie a couple of months ago. We look nothing like each other nowadays.
"We did when we did Star Wars, but now we don't resemble each other at all."02/12/2003 21:07
