Zap2it is reporting today that Keira Knightley admits to having a body double for the lap dance scene in her new movie, Domino.
In an early sequence, model-turned-bounty-hunter Domino Harvey (Knightley) elects to diffuse a tense situation by bribing a gun-toting fugitive with the promise of a lap dance. Thanks to director Tony Scott’s trademark fast-cutting style, the scene is sexy and disorienting, with parts of Knightley’s body seemingly disassociated from the whole. Although the 20-year-old actress appears topless later in the film, something about some of the lap dance shots seems a little fishy. Asked if the dancing was all her, Knightley doesn’t hesitate.
“No, It’s definitely a body double, I don’t have that body,” she says with an utterly disarming grin. “What a bum! I wish I had that bum! No, it was fantastic.”
Keira’s more comfortable showing her breasts than her tushy in this movie. She’s also cool enough to admit she used a body double. They superimposed Phoebe Cates’s face on my body for that infamous bikini/pool scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High and I never got credit for that one. But I did let Mr. Hand take advantage of me on his desk. What can I say? Call it a fetish. Aloha, baby.
Below are screencaps of that lap dance scene and Keira at a Domino press conference.
