Washington, Aug 26 : Keira Knightley hates being chased by the paparazzi as it ruins her social life.
The 'Atonement' star is well known for her distaste of snappers who try and secure photos of her personal life.
And the actress has admitted her pals fail to invite her to social events in case they are harassed by eager photographers.
"One of them (friends) asked me if I would mind not going out with them to a restaurant one evening as they find the whole paparazzi thing alarming," Contactmusic quoted her, as telling Britain's Tatler magazine.
"I don't blame them. It can be very intimidating," she added.
