Billy Elliot star Jamie Bell scrapped wedding dance because it ‘wasn’t up to his standards’

He may have starred as a talented ballet dancer in the 2000 hit movie Billy Elliot, but actor Jamie Bell was so particular about pulling off his wedding dance that he ended up scrapping it.

The 34-year-old married actress Kate Mara in 2017, and during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, the 37-year-old revealed that Bell had canned their first dance a week before their big day because it wasn’t “good enough”.

She said that he was such a perfectionist and was so intent on the dance being choreographed to a tee, that he cancelled the routine when he realised they weren’t as good as he wanted.

“I wanted to learn a swing dance with him because I love swing dancing. It took a lot of convincing because he hates dance lessons,” she said.

“We spent about four weeks doing this swing dancing lesson and learning this whole dance and then literally the week before the wedding he was pacing around the room and I said, ‘What’s the matter,’ and he was like, ‘The choreography is just not good enough. We’ve got to scrap the dance.’ We didn’t do it for the wedding. We ended up slow dancing to our favourite Mexican song.”

The former Fantastic Four co-stars have a daughter who was born in May 2019, but Mara admitted Bell had become a bit of a daggy dancer since they became parents.

“He dances every day. But now that there’s kids, he dances like a dad. You would never know he was Billy Elliot,” she said.

A veteran of the theatre, Porter recently reprised his role as Lola in the smash hit Broadway musical Kinky Boots, for which he won the 2013 Drama Desk and TONY AWARDS for Best Actor in a Musical. His other Broadway acting credits include the Tony nominated Broadway musical, Shuffle Along, directed by George C. Wolfe, Miss Saigon, Five Guys Named Moe, Grease, Smokey Joe’s Café, and Dreamgirls (20th anniversary Broadway concert and LA Ovation Award). His Off Broadway and regional credits include Angels in America (Signature Theater), Romance In Hard Times, The Merchant of Venice, House of Lear, and Radiant Baby (The New York Shakespeare Festival), Birdie Blue (Second Stage), Angels in America (Actors Theatre of Louisville), Going Native (The Long Wharf), Jelly’s Last Jam (Alliance), Topdog/Underdog (City Theatre), King Lear (Exit, Pursued By A Bear), Jason Robert Brown’s Songs for a New World (original cast), Jesus Christ Superstar, Antigone, A Chorus Line, and Chicago. His one-man show Ghetto Superstar: The Man That I Am, debuted at The Public Theater in conjunction with City Theatre of Pittsburgh and was nominated for a 2005 GLAAD Media Award. Porter was also named “Pittsburgh’s Performer of the Year 2003-2004” by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Each week night, THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH James Corden throws the ultimate late night after party with a mix of celebrity guests, edgy musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by offering viewers a peek behind-the-scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches. Additionally, bandleader Reggie Watts and the house band provide original, improvised music throughout the show. Since Corden took the reigns as host in March 2015, he has quickly become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos, such as Carpool Karaoke.
