British actress Keira Knightley might be a glamorous celebrity but she has the same nagging doubts about her beauty as other woman.

Knightley confessed that she still has to contend with pimples and can get uncomfortable getting her picture taken, reports

She said: "I look in the mirror and go, 'Oh no! More spots, more acne!' And I'm not comfortable being photographed when I'm being myself. I believe the Aborigines say that every photo takes away a bit of your soul. It's very odd but I think there's some truth in that."

The Pirates of the Caribbean star also wants to walk away from blockbuster Hollywood roles because they are emotionally stunted and don't challenge her anymore.

Knightley said she "cannot imagine" working on another movie on the scale of Pirates of the Caribbean and instead wants to focus on smaller budget movies that will push her acting skills, reports

She said: "I can't imagine ever doing another one. I had five months off from Pirates during the summer last year, when I made Silk and Atonement, and it was so great - I want to be able to explore emotions in smaller projects. That's not to say I won't suddenly read a big Hollywood blockbuster and go 'oooh that might be good' but I haven't yet."
