Classic Quotes by Keira Knightley and Jamie Dornan about their relationship:

"The song ['Only on the Outside'] hurts so much when I sing it. It's about the difficult times in a relationship. We were so in love. I was intimidated by certain things that came with her fame and I felt out of my depth. It's still hard to talk about it." Jamie Dornan 5/2006
"[We] have decided to call a halt to [our] relationship in its current phase but [we] remain completely committed to each other as friends and will continue to see each other in this capacity." Jamie Dornan 8/9/2005
"I think it's important to make time for the people in your life who you love and who love you back." Keira Knightley 7/2005
"There is a big pressure when you go out with someone such as Keira. The man is meant to be the alpha in the relationship on the money and power front, and clearly I was not. You feel like you have to be dominant in other areas and that causes problems." Jamie Dornan 2/2006
