Los Angeles: Actress Keira Knightley admits she has a host of hang-ups with her face, thanks to her ‘bad skin’.

"I`m incredibly self-conscious about the fact that I get bad skin. Actually, I`m incredibly self-conscious about a lot of parts of it but, equally, I`m aware that it works in certain environments and for certain things," showbizspy.com quoted Knightley as saying.

The 26-year-old says she doesn`t consider herself glamorous.

"I`ve never seen myself as being attractive in that glamorous way. But at a certain point, I`ve had to get over my own body anxiety issues so it doesn`t get in the way of telling the story. It`s something I`ve had to face," she said.

But she does get conscious sometimes.

"I was on the beach the other day. I was in France on holiday with some friends and we were all lying out. They were all totally fine taking everything off and I was sitting around in my jeans and a top. I kind of didn`t want to take anything off," she added.
