Actress Keira Knightley says she will no longer strip on-screen because she is a mother in her 30s. I have had a kid, I am in my 30s, I am very happy with my body. I get to choose the body double.
But now a bevy of women, in a matter of days, have taken back the tit. And you probably do. Comedian Tig Notaro, who had a double mastectomy after a breast cancer diagnosis, did a topless set on Thursday night after being catcalled from the audience.
When Keira Knightley talks about her breast size in a candid interview we get some valuable insight into how Hollywood creates magical illusions. Honestly, there' nothing the special effects department can't pull off. Of course their magic doesn't just stop with fiery explosions, alien births, and realistic dinosaur skin.
Speaking to Jonathan Ross inthe British actress revealed that she has a very specific nudity policy, one that favours the top half of her body. So, for a scene in her dismal Tony Scott action movie Domino in which her character performs a striptease, Knightley requested a butt double. The girl we picked had a lovely bottom.
Keira Knightley may be an English rose, but there's long been one particular media thorn in her side: her weight. While the Anna Karenina star famously and successfully filed suit against a British tabloid for labeling her anorexicthe actress has long faced accusations that she's too skinny. And the weight of those words hasn't left her unaffected.
Miss Knightley has appeared topless in films such as The Edge Of Love and The Duchess, but she said that she has 'never done a scene where I felt, 'Whoa, that went too far'. Now, however, Keira Knightley says she resists appearing naked on screen because she is a mother in her thirties. The actress, 33, uses a body double for scenes in which her characters appear nude and likes to choose them herself.
But our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape. Keira Knightley is topless and beautiful just the way she is and that is the point that she is trying to communicate with the masses. She has never been one to shy away from showing off her figure, but why manipulate that into something that it is clearly not?
Keira opened up about the difficulties of breastfeeding her newborn with her busy schedule despite being on maternity leave. Hollywood megastar Keira Knightley has confirmed the name of her newborn daughter two months after giving birth. Keira announced the name in a candid interview with The Daily Telegraphwhere she also said that she had planned to take six months' maternity leave. She's had to make exceptions, though, including the premiere of her film Official Secrets earlier in October.
Keira Knightley recently posed topless in Interview Magazine as her own personal protest against photoshopping. Knightley told The Times she demanded the not safe for work photos be unedited so people could see what she really looked like. Though the studio bore the brunt of that scandal, the actress herself came under fire in when she and Scarlett Johansson posed nude with a fully clothed Tom Ford on the cover of Vanity Fairin a picture that emphasized the gap the demands made of famous women and men in terms of playing up their sexuality.
Knightley chose to flaunt her underendowed, uneven breasts to make a point: Using Photoshop to edit celebrity bodies perpetuates the myth that beauty equals perfection. Actually, in her field, it does. Knightley bucked the trend by not getting breast implants and publicly regretted allowing a movie poster for King Arthur to portray her with an enhanced bust.
