The pair have been on several dates, according to reports, after being introduced by mutual friend Alexa Chung
Does Keira Knightley have a new leading man in her life? The Pirates of the Caribbean actress has been spotted out on a string of super-secret dates with Klaxons rocker James Righton, and according to reports, is ‘really smitten’ with the music star.
It’s thought the pair were hooked up by a mutual friend – none other than fashionista Alexa Chung – and hit it off straight away.
‘She’s extremely happy right now and really enjoying spending time with James,’ one source told the Mirror of Keira and James’s budding romance.
‘He’s a real rocker and a lovely guy with it and she likes that whole scene – lately she’s become far more rock and roll and has been hanging out with a really trendy crowd.’
But the ‘smitten’ pair will definitely be taking things slowly, if reports are anything to go by, so we won’t be seeing them together on a red carpet any time soon.
‘Keira’s really smitten with James but wants to just quietly get on with it and see what happens,’ the source added.
‘Keira’s been making sure things move slowly. She certainly won’t be stepping out on a red carpet with James in the near future. It’s really early days.’
Keira split with actor Rupert Friend back in January, following a five-year relationship.
Although the pair have remained tight-lipped on the break-up, sources blamed public scrutiny for the split.
‘Rupert hates the idea of being followed and photographed. Keira partially had to accept it because of her rising profile. It affected the harmony in the relationship. The pressure took its toll and both decided they should go their separate ways,’ one insider revealed at the time.
