Not that we ever doubted how amazingly awesome Keira Knightley is to work with, but it's still nice to hear her co-stars gushing over the Oscar nominee.

"She's so down to earth and level headed and works astonishingly hard and keeps it light and easy breezy on the set," Matthew Goode says in an interview included on the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray editions of the The Imitation Game. "[She] has a really good sense of humor. It's like having a sister on set, which is fantastic."

And Knightley had no problem being the lone female star of the movie. "She knew exactly how to control the group of lads…and get over that lads mentality," Allen Leech said.

Fellow Imitation Game Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch believes the film is the "best work she's ever done.

"She's just brilliant, really brilliant," he said.

The Imitation Game tells the story of Alan Turing, the real-life Brit (Cumberbatch) who broke the Nazi code during World War II, only to commit suicide years later after he was prosecuted for being gay.

Knightley plays Turing's fiancée Joan Clarke.

Graham Moore won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Imitation Game.

The Imitation Game will be available for digital download on March 20. The DVD and Blu-ray go on sale on March 31.
