Kate Beckinsale starred alongside Keanu Reeves, Emma Thompson, and Denzel Washington in the 1993 movie, Much Ado About Nothing. While the cast of the film attended the Cannes Film Festival that year, Beckinsale ended up having a wardrobe malfunction where the bottom of her bodysuit came undone.
“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 went on, stating that she, “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,”
This happened in the back of a car when the actress was surrounded by other actors from the film, so she was unable to fix the issue. This resulted in her having to get on the red carpet at one of the most important moments in her life with an outfit that could fall apart at any moment.
