British actress Keira Knightley is moving away from her native London to live full-time in Hollywood.

The 20-year-old has bought an exclusive apartment near Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, and plans to move in with model boyfriend Jamie Dornan as soon as possible.

But Knightley, who is currently filming a sequel to PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, will have to wait until refurbishments on the property have been completed.

An insider says, "Keira and Jamie are both being offered a lot of exciting movie projects, so she just felt it was the right time to buy a property near Hollywood.

"Keira hates staying in hotel rooms. She wanted a place she can make her own."
