Keira Knightley fits into a 23-and-a-half-inch corset!September 19th, 2008 - 5:25 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Sept 19 (ANI): Keira Knightleys look-alike turned out to be her perfect body-double after she managed to fit into the actress 23-and-a-half-inch corset.
Justine Gale, who was used as the stars body-double, has revealed the entire experience of playing the character.
From sharing a tent with hundreds of extras, I now had my own trailer complete with a bathroom, which was half the size of the huge dress I was wearing, creating all sorts of interesting challenges, FoxNews quoted her, as saying.
The first thing that struck me was the attention to detail. When required to play drunk, I had to study Keiras interpretation of Georgianas swagger in order to produce the same movement for continuity purposes.
My skin and hands were whitened where necessary to get a perfect match and I waved goodbye to my L.A. tan.
When pulling in my corset, all measurements were checked … I was most thankful for that on the day a new wardrobe assistant mistakenly pulled me into a 22-and-a-half-inch waist. Ouch! Im sure Keira felt the same and thankfully I was “let out” an inch,
In the film, Knightley is playing the role of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, who was the great-great-great-great aunt of Princess Diana. (ANI)
