Keira Knightley stars as a singer in her new film Begin Again – and even showcases her vocal talents – so it's fitting that her musician husband was on hand to support the star as she promoted the movie in New York.

Klaxons keyboardist James Righton, 30, and Keira, were pictured leaving their Soho hotel hand-in-hand on Thursday as the actress set off for a press conference in the city.

Begin Again sees Keira play a singer-songwriter who is dumped by her boyfriend (Adam Levine) after he gets a break in the music industry. She teams up with a disgraced music executive (Mark Ruffalo) to try and make a name for herself.
Joining the actress at the press conference were her co-stars Mark, Adam and James Cordon, along with the film's director John Carney.

For the role, Keira, 29, sings on camera – and while she has been praised for her voice, the actress has been a little harsher on herself.
During a visit to The Daily Show this week, the star told host John Stewart she was less than impressed with her efforts.
"I was just quite disappointed that I didn't sound like Adele!" she said. "I wasn't given the songs until two days before I had to go into the studio and I'm not a singer.
"I really don't know how to do this, we just got in there and said 'This has to work'."
