Allison Janney bumped into Prince William and Kate Middleton after her BAFTA win this past Sunday night and just so happened to be not wearing any shoes.
Appearing on “The Late Late Show” on Wednesday night, the Oscar-nominated actress told host James Corden that she ditched her high heels at a post-BAFTAs party at the Royal Albert Hall.
“My feet had had it, so I took my shoes off,” Janney explained. “The awful thing is… I did meet Kate and William, and she was in her heels and pregnant, so I felt a bit like a wimp that I was there in my bare feet.”
Janney, who won the BAFTA for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance in “I, Tonya”, then made the situation even more awkward by calling Kate “honey.”
“That might not have been royal etiquette,” the actress joked.
“But they were lovely,” she continued. “They loved ‘I, Tonya’, and it was a pretty cool thing to meet them.”
