At today’s London premiere of the sequel to the Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Man’s Chest, Keira Knightley told an interviewer she was surprised and miffed that she couldn’t get a beer at the L.A. premiere the previous day, which was held at the happiest place on Earth — and as it turned out the driest — Disneyland.
Knightley told Radio 1 DJ Jo Whiley that “the one in LA was a dry premiere — there was no alcohol because it was Disneyland, which was kind of outrageous and really unexpected. I got in there and went ‘I’d like a beer please’ and they said ‘oh no, sorry, there’s no alcohol in Disneyland’. I said ‘what? I’m British, are you mad?’ So yes, tonight should be good.”
Hilarious. Of course, making money off Johnny Depp’s performance as inspired drunken pirate Jack Sparrow doesn’t seem to be a problem for Disney.
“Hey Mickey, want to join me for a pint?“
