Dornan Bemoans 'Knightley's Ex' Tag

Northern Irish model/actor JAMIE DORNAN has bemoaned his status as KEIRA KNIGHTLEY's ex-boyfriend - because he cannot shake off the tag. The star dated the Pirates Of The Caribbean actress for almost two years before the couple split up in 2005, but Dornan is upset the press concentrate on his relationship with Knightley rather than on his own talents. He says, "People knew me in the fashion world before I started going out with Keira because I've done some good work but it's proving so hard to lose the stigma that's attached. "I can't shake off the title of Keira Knightley's ex-boyfriend. It frustrates me so much because Dave (Alexander, his bandmate in group Sons Of Jim) and I have been writing music together for five years, before I even met Keira, and getting places with it and creating awareness."
