Kiera Knightly, actress in a thousand (OK that may be hyberbolic) films ranging from Bend It Like Beckham to Pirate of the Caribbean and Atonement, has been with Klaxons musician James Righton since February 2011. The two wed on May 4 2013 and have been happily together since despite their difficult working schedules.
In a recent short interview with E! News she discussed their relationship, calling marriage “alright”. When reminded by the interviewer that her anniversary is only a few short days away, the Begin Again actress look unsure and surprised, asking “oh yeah, is it?” and “thanks”, presumably for the massive heads up he just gave her.
When then queried about their first year together as a married couple she replied ''We're still together so it must have been alright.'' The 29-year-old quintessentially English actress admitted her Klaxons musician spouse tried to teach her to play guitar for her role in 'Begin Again', but quickly stopped as she wasn’t a natural at it to put it mildly.
She said ''He tried to teach me how to play the guitar and I tried not to kill him--so that was about it. And he stopped trying to teach me the guitar 'cause I'm not very good at it.''
