Keira Knightley learning how to play music instruments
Hollywood superstar Keira Knightley might be a busy actor but has been making sure that she has enough time in the week to learn how to play music instruments.
It can't be too hard given that the teacher is her boyfriend James Righton, from the hit indie outfit Klaxons.
The Hollywood superstar has become increasingly interested in music since she started dating Righton in March, reported the Sun.
A source close to newspaper said: "Keira is turning into a proper rock chick. She might be as posh as they come but she has no qualms about letting herself go on a drum kit. She's a quick learner, too, so it won’t be long until she can play at a decent level."
The entertainment industry is already abuzz with speculation about whether she will be looking to produce her own album or in fact feature on a single of the Klaxons.
She is by no means the first Hollywood star to dabble in music.
Jennifer Lopez, who first started off as a dancer and moved into acting, is currently dominating the charts with her infectious pop music.
