Keira Knightley was left embarrassed when she kept dismissing questions about a movie called 'Say When' - only to discover it was the UK title of 'Laggies'

Keira Knightley "didn't realise" her new movie's title had changed in the UK.

The 29-year-old actress was left embarrassed when quizzed in interviews about 'Say When' and kept denying she was in the film because she was unaware it had had its US title 'Laggies' altered to suit a British audience.

She explained: "I didn't even realise it had had a name change here, it's called 'Laggies' in America because that's a term for people who are being a bit lazy. But the guys over here went, 'But in England nobody knows what that is' and they don't it's true, because I didn't know either, so they changed it.

"They didn't tell me until really late so I was doing all these interviews and being asked about this film called 'Say When' and I had no idea what it was and was going, 'I think you've got the wrong person, I wasn't in that.' But I am!"

Keira enjoyed shooting the movie in Seattle because it was a "celebration of the suburbs".

She added: "It was great [in Seattle], it's very very deeply indie, very low budget. It was originally written for LA but Lynn Shelton, the director, is Seattle born and bred and loves making films there, it was a great city. It's definitely a celebration of the suburbs, which I quite liked about it."

Aimless late-twentysomething Megan (Knightley) spins out after her boyfriend proposes, and ends up lying low with teenager Annika (Moretz) and her genial father Craig (Rockwell). Hardly explosive or revelatory, it's a charming, John Hughes-ish exploration of growing pains, and the central trio are appealing; Knightley in…
