Growing up, Riley Keough was a normal kid living in the streets of Los Angeles. The only difference between her and the others is she’s the granddaughter of Elvis Presley! At 30, she’s becoming a major superstar in her own right.
Strike A Pose
When she was a teen, Keough started turning heads as a model. “I was only 14 years old and really want to be independent in order to buy what I wanted. The older sister of a friend of mine worked as a model and made good money, so I imitated. But I do not think that will continue, it was a passing phase,” Keough told IO Donna.
As she progressed, she worked with big brands such as Dolce & Gabbana and David Yurman. After a while, Keough lost interest in the profession. “They are very impatient, and photo shoots are boring. If it was my career, I do not think I would have been the best,” she also told IO Donna. Recently, she dove back into modeling for Louis Vuitton campaigns. Their summer 2017 campaign found her teaming up with Jaden Smith.
Lights, Camera, Action
In 2010, Keough made her acting debut in the biopic The Runaways. Soon, she began getting roles in Magic Mike, The Good Doctor, and Mad Max: Fury Road. In 2016, she starred in the Starz anthology drama The Girlfriend Experience. On the show, she played law student Christine Reade. Her performance earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress, Limited TV Series or TV Movie. Keough enjoyed being able to expand on her character’s story through television. “You have hours and hours to tell a story. You don’t have to jam everything into ten scenes, or whatever. I wouldn’t say I was aggressively looking for a TV role, but I was definitely interested in doing TV. The great part about it is that I can do one season, and then go, if I want to. It’s just like shooting a really long film, which is great,” Keough told Collider. In 2018, she returned to TV in the HBO film Paterno and The CW’s Riverdale.
The accolades continued with her performance in the drama American Honey. Keough gained Best Supporting Actress nominations at the Independent Spirit Awards and the London Critics Circle Film Awards. Next, she’ll appear in the films The Devil All the Time and Zola.
Finding The One
While shooting Mad Max: Fury Road in 2012, Keough ran into stuntman Ben Smith-Petersen. The two didn’t start dating until after they filmed reshoots the following year. Weeks after dating, Keough knew she found the one. “Two weeks into dating him, we were at a gas station and I was like, ‘I could see myself having kids with this person.’ It was kind of like I knew I was meeting my husband. It was very cool,” Keough told USA Today. While most people take time to have those feelings, Keough found herself at ease with Ben. “I always felt comfortable around him. You know when you feel weird when you first start dating someone, or like you don’t want to eat in front of them, you wake up and put makeup on or something weird? I just always felt very comfortable with him, always wanted to be near him, even from the beginning,” Keough also told USA Today.
in 2015, the two got married in Napa, California. Actresses Kristen Stewart, Dakota Johnson, Zoe Kravitz were among those at the wedding ceremony. When it comes to having kids, Keough wants to keep the number small. “I have a bunch of work stuff to do and then we’ll see. I probably want like three. Two or three, but less than five and more than one,” she told E! News.
Molly Ringwald Was Apparently The Culprit Behind Getting A Cast Member Fired On The Breakfast Club
It’s been well more than three decades since the movie The Breakfast Club taught us about seeing each other as more than just a jock, a nerd, a beauty, a criminal, or a basket case. Written and directed by John Hughes, this feel-good ‘80s flick has withstood the test of time.
