Keira Knightley recently appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers and shared a story from her prom night.
The actress attended the event with her best friend, who was a girl and gay. The two decided to take a prom picture together in which they kissed.
However, when they went to look for the photo on the event’s photo wall, they couldn’t find it. When they inquired about its whereabouts, they were told that it was deemed “inappropriate” for display.
“They said it wasn’t appropriate for the wall,” Knightley said on the show. “Scandal at 16!”
This wasn’t the only memorable moment from Knightley’s prom night. In an interview with Vulture in 2014, the actress shared more details about the event.
“We both turned up an hour late,” she said.
“I’d been filming Bend It Like Beckham, and I turned up in leather pants and a crop top, and she was a model for a while, and she’d been in Paris shooting something, and she turned up as the boy.
“So, she had a black tie with ripped jeans on, and everybody else was completely dressed up, obviously, in that kind of finery.
“And then we had our picture taken underneath the thing, and she’s kissing me, and we were told that that was disgusting.
“And one of the teachers took us both aside and said we were never going to come to anything if we didn’t know how to dress appropriately for events like that.
“So, that was my prom. We had a great time!”
In addition to discussing her prom night, Knightley also talked about her experience kissing her Colette co-star Dominic West. West wore a long beard for the film, and Knightley described their kissing scenes as very uncomfortable.
“It was sort of like kissing a walrus,” she admitted. “I mean, not that I know what that is like—as I’d imaging kissing a walrus would be. It’s amazing because he’s really a sexy man, and he’s really not in the film at all in any way.”
The actress also shared a story about her 3-year-old daughter, Edie, and her recent habit of cursing.
It’s not clear what Knightley said about this topic, but it seems to have been a lighthearted moment in the interview.
