Keira Knightley is clearly not hurting over her recent break-up with longtime boyfriend Rupert Friend.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star was spotted smooching new boyfriend James Righton of The Klaxons in Hoxton Square in London.

The pair reportedly met after being introduced by mutual friend Alexa Chung, who is currently dating Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys. Alexa and James briefly dated in 2006 but have remained friends since they decided to call things off.

Keira broke up with Rupert over Christmas of last year. According to Keira’s father, the break-up was “unfortunate” but the two will still remain friends.

Following her public smooch with James, Keira and her new beau were spotted walking around the actress’ Hyde Park neighborhood arm-in-arm. Keira was dressed appropriately for a rock star’s girlfriend in a vintage-inspired minidress, brown oxfords and a cropped jean jacket from H&M.
