She recently became engaged to Klaxons rocker James Righton.

And it appears his musical interests are rubbing off on actress Keira Knightley.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star was spotted filming her latest scenes with co-star Mark Ruffalo in New York yesterday.

And they seem to be making sweet music together on the set of their new movie Can A Song Save Your Life

The acting duo looked like they were having fun as they played their guitars and sang into a microphone.

Keira, 27, looked casual in jeans, a black T-shirt and a red cardigan as she sipped on her coffee and chatted to a smoking Mark Ruffalo in between takes.

She seemed to take well to the musical instrument as they joked around on set.

Knightley has already showed off her footballing skills in breakout movie Bend It Like Beckham and now it seems she's been hiding her music talents, as well.

Just a day before she was seen kissing Ruffalo in a romance scene for the movie.

The British beauty was seen gently closing her eyes to sprinkle her affections on co-star Mark Ruffalo, but moments later pushed him away with force by placing an arm on his shoulder.

Dressed in cream trousers and navy sleeveless silk top, Keira's character appeared to have a change of heart in the arms of her beau after initially seeming to consent.

Keira, who plays a dumped lover who embarks on a new romance, was earlier seen smiling over a cup of ice-cream in the Big Apple.

The scene took place on a city park bench with The Kids Are All Right actor Ruffalo and True Grit's Hailee Steinfeld.

But Levine's character dumps her for what he thinks will be a successful solo career without her.

played by Ruffalo, while singing in a bar on an open mic night.

Love and happiness ensue.

The movie has just announced another high-profile attachment, with hit musician Cee Lo Green to join the cast playing a successful hip-hop star.
