Keira Knightley Kissed Best Girlfriend at Prom, Teacher Disgusted

by The Next Family October 29, 2014



Keira Knightley had a great time at her prom. And by that, she means she went dressed in leather pants, brought her best friend who dressed as a boy, kissed for the photo, and were told the picture was “disgusting.”

“I went to prom with my best mate, Emily. We both turned up an hour late, and I’d been filming Bend It Like Beckham, and I turned up in leather pants and a crop top,” Knightley said.

“Emily was a model and had 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,” she said.“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,” Knightley said. “So that was my prom. We had a great time!”

Knightley is currently filming Laggies, a comedy about adults who just can’t seem to get adulthood right. Knightley plays a woman in her 20s who decides to live with a girl in high school in an attempt to take a break from her life.

“I f—ing hated high school, so I wouldn’t revert to high school ever,” Knightley said of her real-life high school experience. “When I was a teenage girl, I was like, ‘Ugh, I don’t really like this,’ so that’s never been my place in time.”

Laggies is now playing in New York, L.A. and Seattle.

Representation of Modern Families in Kid-Friendly Entertainment

by The Next Family March 24, 2016 1 Comment


By Alex Temblador

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.

The same can be said of other...
