You know how beautiful A-List Hollywood actresses are always going on talk shows and saying that they were ugly ducklings as teenagers, or that boys never asked them out in high school. Surprisingly, that seems to be the case for Keira Knightley, who recently confessed that she went to her prom with a girl because a boy never asked.
Knightley was out promoting her new film Laggies with co-star Sam Rockwell. The British actress revealed her prom woes during a game of 20 questions, “Neither of us got invited by anybody else. No guys came anywhere near us. But she had black tie because it was black tie.”
It appears that the girl in question was actually a close friend of Knightley’s. In fact, the two are still in touch, “She actually texted me at lunch. She is over from New York visiting her mum in England and wondered if I was there to have dinner with her.”
Knightley also disclosed her teenage penchant for what Rockwell described as “angry music.” She explained during the game that along with Nirvana and Reef, that she was also into a little hardcore rap metal. “And then who were the ones who did, ‘Killing in the name of…F–k you, I won’t do what you tell me.” That of course is a lyric from Rage Against the Machine’s Killing in the Name.
Laggies is out in limited release starting today. Here’s the synopsis for the film:
Overeducated and underemployed, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) is in the throes of a quarterlife crisis. Squarely into adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to think about her future and no one to relate to, Megan is comfortable lagging a few steps behind – while her friends check off milestones and celebrate their new grown-up status. When her high-school sweetheart (Mark Webber) proposes, Megan panics and- given an unexpected opportunity to escape for a week – hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year old Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad Craig (Sam Rockwell).
