Keke Palmer recently reunited with the Nope cast to celebrate their 2023 AFI Awards honor. The mom-to-be showed off her growing baby bump in a gorgeous yellow dress as she posed for pictures on the red carpet.

The very pregnant 29-year-old actress was joined by director Jordan Peele and Palmer’s co-star, Daniel Kaluuya, on January 13 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California to celebrate that the film has landed on the AFI’s Top 10 Movies of the Year list.


Recently, the Star alum sat down with W Magazine to talk about the movie. When asked how the movie fell into her lap, she replied, Every now and then, very rare, magical situations happen where people just know that they want you, and Nope was one of those scenarios for me. I got on the phone with Jordan. He told me that he wrote this role with me in mind and wanted me to star in it alongside Daniel Kaluuya. I was just shocked and gagged, and obviously more than ready for the opportunity.”

As for her how she developed her brother-sister relationship with co-star Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer said, “Daniel and I actually spent a lot of time together. Before we started filming, Daniel invited me out to dinner and I was really excited because honestly, I’m a big fan. It was good for me to get the opportunity to break the ice because I didn’t want to fan out on him on set. During the whole filming of Nope we were hanging out and then afterwards, too. He’s someone that I consider a good friend.”

Keke has been in the public eye since the age of 9 and says that it has been a ‘whirlwind’ experience.  “It’s one of those things where how can you know anything else if that’s all you really know? I started acting when I was 9. I was 14 when I did True Jackson, VP, and it was my own show. I remember thinking, Wow! This is crazy! When that show came out, everything changed for me. It was a whirlwind experience.”
