The pregnant “Imitation Game” star attended the Newport Beach Film Festival pre-BAFTA private reception at ME Hotel in London on Thursday night, wearing metallic Tabitha Simmons pumps, while she covered up her baby bump in a custom Michael van der Ham dress.
Knightley was joined by her co-star Benedict Cumberbatch at the event. Both are up for Oscars for their performances in the “Imitation Game.”
And in case you missed it, Knightley is making headlines for re-creating Meg Ryan’s famous orgasm scene in “When Harry Met Sally.” To honor Hollywood’s recent British invasion, photographer Jason Bell directed a short film to accompany Vanity Fair‘s all-U.K. edition of the magazine’s annual Hollywood portfolio. (You’re not going to want to miss Dame Judi Dench’s response to Knightley’s Meg Ryan tribute.)
Bell told Vanity Fair that he offered the stars options of scenes to re-create, saying, “I didn’t know which bit [Keira] would do. She kind of laughed, and said, ‘It’s the orgasm we’ve got to do.'”
“Once you had Keira Knightley faking an orgasm and Judi Dench saying ‘I’ll have what she’s having,” it was a pretty easy sell,” Bell continued. “Everyone just said, ‘Sure, what do you want me to say?'”
Other famous Brits included in the short film were David Oyelowo, Benedict Cumberbatch, Emily Blunt, Jamie Dornan, Felicity Jones, Damian Lewis, Natalie Dormer, James Corden, Tom Hiddleston, Chiwetel Ejiofor and many more.
