Keira Knightley had a lovely time at a private screening of her new movie “The Imitation Game” in Silicon Valley, even if she wasn’t quite sure who anyone there was. The actress told Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night about rubbing elbows with some billionaire nerds, including Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sergey Brin.
Explaining who hosted the evening, Knightley said: “Some rich … tech … person called Yuri, who was very nice.”
The Yuri she’s referring to is Yuri Milner, a venture capitalist with his hand in several Internet tech businesses.
“I went to Yuri’s very large house. And his friends, who included Mark Zuckerberg and Google people … called Sergey, who was also very nice,” Knightley said, seemingly unknowing of who Sergey Brin is.
Brin co-founded Google and has a personal fortune estimated to be around $30 billion.
“These are all very, very wealthy people,” Kimmel said to her.
So wealthy, in fact, that someone in attendance approached Knightley and offered to show her his “spaceship.”
“Somebody actually came up to me and said, ‘Well, if you ever want to see a spaceship, here’s my card,’ which has never happened to me before,” Knightley said. “So I may phone him and say, ‘Yes, show me spaceships.'”
Very few men can use a pickup line quite that good.
“The Imitation Game” also stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, the British mathematician who helped break Germany’s Enigma Code during World War II.
