British beauty Keira Knightley and new beau BODYROCKERS star KAZ JAMES were desperate to keep their romance discreet at the London premiere of her new film Pride And Prejudice last night (05SEP05).

Despite reports the slender actress "wants the world to know that she and Kaz are a couple" by attending the event together, James in particular was keen to remain in the shadows.

He left the assembled media at the premiere less than convinced by protesting, "I'm just here to see the movie."

Meanwhile, Knightley remained equally evasive, saying, "My brother is my date."
