Edie Righton fears for the future of America. Then again, Edie Righton is 19 months old and calls brussels sprouts “balls,” so maybe take her concerns with a grain of salt.
The daughter of actress Keira Knightley and Klaxons keyboardist James Righton was distraught to hear Donald Trump had been elected president of these great (?) United States.
During a visit to a special Christmas episode of “The Jonathan Ross Show,” airing Saturday, Keira claimed her little one climbed into her parents' bed the morning of November 9 and fully expressed her exasperation.
The 31-year-old said,
She's like this watching the television, completely silently and totally still for about four minutes and she rolls over onto her back and she closes her eyes and she goes, 'Fuck!' I'm very proud.
Right on, Edie Righton, right ~da fuck~ on.
Baby Edie has enough to focus on without Trump's presidency distracting her from the important stuff.
We've actually been testing out and making Sunday roasts to see if she could sit at the table for long enough for the Christmas dinner… All that keeps happening is she looks at the brussels sprouts and she goes 'Ball! Ball!' and she grabs them and lobs them at you. I'm hoping that doesn't happen on Christmas day.
This is an extremely expressive child. Expect the unexpected, Keir.
When the actress -- who earned an Oscar nom for her work in 2015 for "The Imitation Game" -- isn't wrangling Edie, she's promoting the release of her upcoming film "Collateral Beauty," in which she plays Love alongside Helen Mirren's Death, Jacob Latimore's Time and Will Smith's bereaved parent.
Basically, if you're looking for something heavy-handed to cry to in the back of a dark, stale movie theater this winter, this gang's got you covered.
As for Edie, she's booked through April. Later, haters.
