London, Mar 3 (ANI): Keira Knightley is not only Colin Farrell's leading lady in a new film, but she is also playing his agony aunt in reality-the actress has been comforting the actor after he was dumped by girlfriend Emma Forrest.
The 'Pirates of the Caribbean' actress was initially in touch with the Irishman to discuss their upcoming film London Boulevard, for which they begin shooting next month.
But after novelist Emma dumped Colin, the 23-year-old actress has become a close confidant for the actor.
"Keira thought it would be helpful to speak to Colin about their parts but she has been trying to support him while he goes through girlfriend troubles," the Daily Express quoted a source as saying.
The insider added: "Keira says it has helped her understand the man she is going to be playing opposite and is delighted to have connected so well with him."
Emma reportedly walked out on the 'Phone Booth' actor because he didn't mention her in his Golden Globes acceptance speech in January. (ANI)
