Riley Keough stated in a new Vanity Fairy video interview that she temporarily shut down the “Under the Silver Lake” set after it was discovered she was munching on a granola bar that included peanuts. Keough was not aware at the time that Andrew Garfield, her co-star in the movie, had a severe peanut allergy. Keough and Garfield were preparing to film a kissing sequence that day, so if the granola bar hadn’t been flagged, it might have been disastrous.
“It was actually very stressful,” Keough said. “I was in the makeup trailer and I was eating a granola bar or something, and I was about to shoot a scene where I have to kiss Andrew. And the makeup lady was like, ‘Are there peanuts in that?’ And I was like, ‘I think. I don’t know.’ She ran away and got a producer who was a friend of mine.”
“The producer came in and was like, ‘Riley, Andrew’s very allergic to peanuts and we have to shut the set down,” Keough continued. “It shouldn’t have been at craft, and I don’t know why they’re on set. It was just kind of like, ‘Oh fuck, that’s crazy.’ But also thank God that this woman caught it because I had no idea.”
