Washington: Sexy Brit actress Keira Knightley has chopped off her locks and debuted a sleek new 20s-style bob at the Chanel spring/summer 2011 show during Paris Fashion Week.

"I had my hair bobbed about a month ago, then I had it freshly trimmed again this morning," Us Magazine quoted Knightley as telling UK InStyle.

The new ``do wasn’t for a movie role, I did it for myself," she added.

The actress -- who earned a best supporting actress nod at the 2010 Laurence Olivier Awards for her West End role in The Misanthrope this year -- also wants more stage time.

"I was very lucky," she said, "and I’d love to do more theatre!"
