Kate Beckinsale has revealed how Keanu Reeves and Robert Sean Leonard once helped her avoid a very public wardrobe malfunction!
The actor recalled attending the Cannes Film Festival in 1993 where her movie Much Ado About Nothing was holding its premiere. In a post on Instagram, she explains how the guys stepped up when things were… falling apart…
“I had bought the bodysuit in the Sock Shop at the airport and when I got in the car to drive to the premiere with Denzel and Pauletta Washington, all the poppers in the crotch popped themselves open and it flipped up like a roller blind,” she writes on Instagram, sharing a photo from the red carpet event with Keanu, Robert and fellow star Denzel Washington. They’re all smiling in the pic, of course, as if Kate wasn’t about to flash the world!
“I didn’t feel it was appropriate to go delving around in my undercarriage with all of us in the back of the car so I just quietly panicked. Walked out onto the biggest red carpet of my life and whispered to Keanu and Robert Sean Leonard what had happened.”
She goes on to share that her co-stars held the bodysuit down for her:
“In this picture, I am holding the front gusset down and the two of them are holding the back gusset. Absolute legends who may not even have fully understood the physics of what was happening or even heard the word ‘gusset’ before, but both jumped in to save me no questions asked.”
