Knightley Preps Beau For Movie Career

Subscribe To:

Rising teen star KEIRA KNIGHTLEY has convinced her model boyfriend to launch a film career.

The 19-year-old actress and Irish hunk JAMIE DORNAN have been dating for six months, although the KING ARTHUR beauty refuses to speak to the press about their relationship.

According to pals of Knightley, the movie babe has encouraged Dornan to sign with her agent.

A friend says, "Jamie's always wanted to act. Keira's convinced him that he has talent and really pushed him to go with her agent."

Knightley is would love to star opposite Dornan on the big screen, although she is wary of choosing a project after JENNIFER LOPEZ and BEN AFFLECK's heist film GIGLI spectacularly bombed at the box office during their ill-fated relationship.

The pal adds, "It would have to be the right project for Keira. She's only young, but she's wise enough to avoid a repeat of Gigli."
