Being pregnant has many upsides, and Keira Knightley discovered one of them while waiting for the 2015 Golden Globe awards to start — you get to skip the restroom line!

Knightley looked stunning, showing off her little baby bump in a beautiful butterfly Chanel number on the red carpet on Sunday, Jan 11. But as show time approached, mom-to-be Knightley suddenly felt the need to get to the bathrooms, and fast!

The restroom line at Los Angeles' Beverly Hilton Hotel on Golden Globes night is almost legendary, but luckily for The Imitation Game star, the kind ladies ahead of her took pity on a pregnant actress, and let her skip through.

Just moments before the ceremony began, Knightley (who was accompanied to the show by husband James Righton) rushed into the ladies' room looking apologetic. "I'm sorry, excuse me, pregnant lady coming through!" she said as she rushed into a stall.

Sadly for Knightley, her good luck didn't run through to the ceremony, where she lost out the Best Supporting Actress award to Boyhood's Patricia Arquette.

But the bathroom issue was one fellow celebrity Anna Faris understood perfectly — having been allowed to cut in line herself just a few minutes earlier. "Oh the ladies room," the actress had bemoaned as she joined the long, long line. "I wanted to wear a catheter for this show!"
