Awww. They were such a cute couple!
Keira Knightley and actor Rupert Friend have split after five years of dating, and reportedly her busy schedule and constant media attention were factors in the break-up.
The pair met in 2005 when the beautiful actress played Elizabeth Bennet to Friend's Mr. Wickham in the screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.
Knightleyâ€™s father tells the Sun:
- "Yes, they have broken up. But that's the way things go, unfortunately. The only option is to get on with things. They were together for quite a long time and it is always hard breaking up. She's focused on her work."
Keira is currently busy with theater and movie projects, while Friend also has several movie projects in the works. Keeping busy is the best way to get over a break up!
