A Pride & Prejudice Double Romance

Keeping it all in the P&P Family

Fans of the 2005 P&P movie will be surprised or perhaps even be happy to know, It is now truth universally known that Pride & Prejudice (2005) stars Keira Knightley (Elizabeth Bennet) & Rupert Friend (Mr. Wickham) and Rosamund Pike (Jane Bennet) & Joe Wright (director of 2005 Pride & Prejudice film) are real-life couples.

In 2004 while on production for their Jane Austen adaptation of Pride & Prejudice, they all met and worked together for the movie, but neither couples (not that I've heard of or I could be wrong here, lol) were an item till after they finished filming P&P or during the promotion of the film in 2005.

23 JOE WRIGHT - DIRECTORTwo excellent Brit-lit adaps and an Oscar nom for Keira Knightley. But you’ve barely noticed him, have you? Because – like the greatest directors – Wright makes tricky tasks look easy.What’s next? Hollywood, baby.

Everybody Loves Jane Austen

From The New Yorker:
