Keira Knightley has explained why she has refused to reprise her role in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film.

The actress, who starred in the previous movies as Elizabeth Swann, revealed that she only ever intended to appear in the trilogy.

"I said when I finished the trilogy that that was going to be it - I had a wonderful time on it and I met some extraordinary people but you know, I think, for me three is enough, definitely," she said at the Laurence Olivier Awards.

Discussing future roles, Knightley added: "I've got three films coming out - London Boulevard, Never Let Me Go and Last Night - then I'm just off to do another one called The Talking Cure."

Penelope Cruz today revealed details of her part in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which will be released on May 20, 2011.
