Keanu Reeves Saved Kate Beckinsale from a wardrobe malfunction at the Cannes film festival

Kate Beckinsale has revealed how Keanu Reeves saved her from a wardrobe disaster 20 years ago.

On Monday, the 49-year-old actor reflected on attending the 1993 Cannes Film Festival in an Instagram post. The post also featured a throwback photo from the event, in which Beckinsale appeared alongside Keanu Reeves, Denzel Washington, and Robert Sean Leonard at the Much Ado About Nothing premiere.

After mentioning that her mother was the one who discovered this old photograph, Beckinsale addressed some of the difficulties she had with her outfit at the time.

“Fun fact though: 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 jokingly wrote.

Beckinsale accessorized her green bodysuit and skirt with a silk cardigan, brown earrings, and a silver barrette for the occasion. She went on to recall how she warned her peers about the wardrobe issue in the caption.

“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,” she wrote. “Walked out onto the biggest red carpet of my life and whispered to Keanu and Robert Sean Leonard what had happened.”

She then thanked Reeves and Leonard for holding onto one end of her gusset, which was the bottom part of her bodysuit that had broken, while she posed on the red carpet.

“In this picture, I am holding the front gusset down and the two of them are holding the back gusset,” she explained. “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.”

Many fans and celebrities expressed their amusement at Beckinsale’s story in the post’s comments.

Naomi Watts commented, “Hysterical,” with two clapping hands emoji and a sobbing laughing face emoji.

“Wow, that’s genius,” said another, while a third added, “Love this story!”

Others praised Reeves and Leonard for assisting Beckinsale during the film festival.

“I love the casual ‘nothing to see here’ expressions. “Well bloody done!” one person wrote.

“Oh my goodness, you are the epitome of the show must go on – kudos to the two most awesome guys for actually saving the day.” “I like them even more now,” said another.

The Underworld actress posted a throwback photo after walking the red carpet at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Beckinsale wore a mint green translucent bodysuit covered with jewels to the premiere of The Pot-au-Feu on Monday. Her hair was pulled back in a ponytail and she had a similar green train around her waist.

She reflected on her first time at the Cannes Film Festival as she posted pictures from the event and received compliments on her outfit on Instagram.

“76th Cannes Film Festival in my dream dress – remembering my first time on these steps in scuffed steel toe-capped Dr Martens 30 years ago.” “Both are magical,” she said in the caption.
