Keira Knightley engaged to The Klaxons' James Righton
Actress Keira Knightley is engaged to James Righton, the multi-instrumentalist British rocker from the band The Klaxons.
Knightley's publicist confirmed the news to The Associated Press but refused to elaborate on details of the proposal or wedding plans. The couple met in March 2011 and have been dating ever since.
The Klaxons rose to prominence in 2006 and became celebrated in the British music press for their so-called "new rave" sound, which was amplified by a colourful, glowstick aesthetic in their visuals and music videos. They are rumoured to be working with LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and The Chemical Brothers on their next album.
Knightley's big break was the 2002 film Bend It Like Beckham. She's since starred in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean and Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method.
