Focused on balancing her work life with her personal one, Pirates of the Caribbean star Keira Knightley was spotted smooching her new man, James Righton, in a park in East London.  Righton is the keyboard player for the Klaxons.  According to UsMagazine.com, the actress and the musician were introduced by a mutual friend, Alexa Chung.  This is the first major relationship Knightley has had since breaking up with her boyfriend of five years, Rupert Friend.  “It’s hard to have a relationship when I’m working so much,” she told Marie Claire. “But then you have to think, ‘What is actually important in life?’  Is career your only thing?  That’s sad, because there’s going to come a day when you’re left lonely.  It’s a difficult compromise.  I think you’ve got to strive for balance.  It’s the striving that counts.”
