One of the biggest moments at the Met Gala this year happened in the bathroom of all places. As you might recall, Kylie Jenner shared a bathroom selfie to end all bathroom selfies. It featured pretty much anyone and everyone you could ever imagine, including  Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner of course, A$AP Rocky, Paris JacksonLily Aldridge, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Dakota Johnson, Frank Ocean, Brie Larson, and more.

And now we know exactly how it all happened, thanks to Michelle Monaghan who was also in the photo. "It was the right time, the right place," she told The Daily Dish at the Hulu Upfront presentation on Wednesday. "Everybody's bladders were in the same position."

Michelle's The Path co-star Hugh Dancy and wife Claire Danes may not have been in the right place or time for that particular snapshot, but the couple didn't miss the chance to don their finest couture for the splashy event. In fact, Claire, who sported a light-up ball gown last year, was very excited to rock her Monse-designed outfit for this particular reason.

"She was so stoked to be wearing pants that she had failed to mention the enormous white shirt that hanged on the floor. So I was a little surprised by the information that she hadn't shared, but I thought it was awesome," Hugh shared. "I probably have uttered those words ['we have to be in the car now'] at some point, but no it's easy and it's fun particularly that event cause it's so extreme and the clothes often are so amazing."

So, did Hugh have any good gossip for us about what went down when the photogs weren't snapping? "The craziest thing is just all of these people, every single one of which you almost you recognize just hanging out and probably all feeling as mildly uncomfortable as I do," he said. "It's incredible in that setting."
