Knightley recalled attending the event with her girl best friend, after having a great time, Knightley and her friend kissed for their prom photos.

But later, when the pair looked for their photo on the memory wall… it wasn’t there, “They said it wasn’t appropriate for the wall,” she said. “Scandal at 16!”

This isn’t the first time Knightley has opened up about prom.

“We both turned up an hour late,” she told Vulture in 2014. “I’d been filming ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, and I turned up in leather pants and a crop top, and she was a model for a while, and she’d 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. 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. So, that was my prom. We had a great time!”

“Colette” premiered at TIFF on Wednesday and will hit theatres Sept. 21.
