Elizabeth Banks has recalled how she once broke the zipper on her dress just minutes before she was due to arrive at a movie premiere.
In a recent throwback post uploaded to Instagram, the actress/filmmaker opened up about how she suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction while on the way to a screening of Lee Daniels’s drama Precious at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009.
Sharing a snap of her in a silver Zac Posen dress, Elizabeth told her 3.2 million followers that the zip on the back of the gown popped open moments before stepping out of the car with her publicist Jessica Kolstad.
“The zipper popped in the car. I’m sure it was my a*s and not the dress. @imajesspot miraculously got the top to hold, we made it a ‘keyhole’ but you can tell from my face and body I am trying to move as little as possible because the zipper was just opening the whole time I walked,” the 46-year-old wrote alongside the snaps, which included a shot of the back of her broken dress. “It busted totally open as soon as I sat in the theatre, exposing top crack so I wore my husband’s tux jacket the rest of the night.”
Eva Longoria, who inspired the Pitch Perfect 2 director to share her embarrassing wardrobe blunder, commented on the post: “We’ve all been there!!!”
While Julianne Moore showed her support by simply leaving a flame emoji.
