Actress Keira Knightley is determined to prove she is not dumb after dropping out of school at 17.
But she insists her learning disability and poor academia record only spurs her on more to show she is brainy.
She says, "It (dyslexia) makes me feel I am going to read absolutely everything so I can prove that I am not stupid."
Knightley also admits that giving up university in favour of a film career has left her with a "chip on her shoulder" over her lack of education.
She adds, "I am completely uneducated. Not going to university did give me an incredible driving force because it leaves you with a slight chip on your shoulder. »
The pair met on the set of period drama Pride and Prejudice in 2005 and Wright proposed to the actress at Lake Como in Italy last September.

A source says, "The invitations featured a picture of them together in a hot tub.
"Joe dumped her for sending them without consulting him and she had to tell all the guests the wedding was off." »
