Head's up to Keira Knightley's boyfriend Rupert Friend: Don't go renting The Notebook on that next date night. In December's Elle, the actress, 22, admits, "I love romantic films ... But I don't like being raped by sugar." She also opens up about being moody, shooting a sex scene in her new flick Atonement (out December 7) and why she hates the word 'cute'."

On being moody: I'm a moody bastard. Actually, I've been banned from reading newspapers because the way they're written angers me so much. If I want an opinion, I'll read the opinion part of the newspaper. I do not want it when I'm trying to get the facts. I get incredibly angry. It really f**ks me off. See, I have to calm down about it."

On becoming aware of her sexual powers: :"Oh, my god. I don't think I'm aware of it now! No... I'm lying. I don't know why I said that. No, I'm not lying, actually. I'll just have an argument with myself!" 

On her sex scene in upcoming movie Atonement: "There was no knob-touching, for real. But it certainly looked like that." 

On the word 'cute': "I hate cute, I've always hated cutesy. My mom used to ban the word cute. Absolutely banned." 

On cell phones: "I hate them. It rings, and then I realize that I don't want to talk to anyone. So I always press ignore."
