Actress Keira Knightley is said to be dating rocker James Righton, who is with the British indie rock band Klaxons.
The 26-year-old star was introduced to Righton by their mutual friend Alexa Chung four weeks ago.
“She’s extremely happy right now and really enjoying spending time with James,” mirror.co.uk quoted a friend as saying. “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.”
“Alexa set them up on a date as both of them were single and they hit it off straight away. Alexa’s taking all the credit for them getting on so well – she’s like Cilla Black when it comes to hooking up her friends.
“Keira’s really smitten with James but wants to just quietly get on with it and see what happens,” the friend added.
A source said the actress wants to take things slowly.
“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,” the source said.
