Keira Knightley is a Duchess

Keira Knightley and blonder boyfriend Rupert Friend take a romantic stroll through Central London holding hands on Wednesday afternoon.

It was recently announced that Keira, 22, will be playing 18th century Georgiana, duchess of Devonshire, in Saul Dibb‘s The Duchess.

Variety describes Georgiana as a controversial blueblood: “An ancestor of Princess Di, she lived an extravagant, profligate and promiscuous life of political and romantic intrigue, becoming an important powerbroker amid Blighty’s ruling elite but also running up catastrophic gambling debts. She was alternately feted and reviled, and widely caricatured by the popular press.”

The Duchess will be begin shooting in October.

    He kinda reminds me of Johnny Depp……in a really savy way.

  • Hmm

    She always seems sad or upset or something. She rarely looks happy.

    sweet

  • Hulla

    She’s awesome.
    She’s also not one of those boring typical beautiful faces like Biel so she will always find great roles.

  • ricki

    Holy crap, her face looks haggard.

    LOL! Rupert Friend’s foot looks so hilarious on picture 5…haha that made me laugh. He’s cute though, I think he looks like Orlando Bloom.

    keira is the most beautiful woman ever.

    I used to think Rupert was annoying, but there’s something rather cute about him in these pictures. I think he’s growing on me. Keira however, needs to take a nap, or better yet, eat a sandwich and take a nap.

  • kelana

    cute couple! so bohemian and cool.

  • Lizzie

    They are both beautiful, but currently his hair annoys me. I like that they are really together, not celebudating.
