Actress Keira Knightley was struck down with pleurisy last year after her hectic work schedule made her ill.

Kiera Knightley's pleurisy battle

The Atonement star thought she had injured her ribs while rehearsing for a show and battled through the pain, only to find out weeks later she had caught the agonising lung infection.

She told Australia's Harper's Bazaar magazine: "You do period films and you get some sort of weird archaic disease. And I didn't realise, so I went on for another month. I just stupidly never went to a doctor.

"I was rehearsing for this play and and then I found in rehearsals it got so bad that I couldn't stand up any more. And they said, 'Please, can you go to the doctor?'"
