Keira Knightley is gracing the December cover of the magazine Allure where she will be posing topless, but with no explicit nudity. What makes this newsworthy is that Keira Knightley has no problem discussing topics that are often American taboo: sex, nudity, and the size of the breasts.
According to the New York Daily News, the 27-year-old actress explained that she does not mind exposing her chest in photo shoots and on film sets because–in her own words–there is not much to see, anyway!
“I’m quite rigorous about what gets exposed,” she told Allure. “No bottom half! I don’t mind exposing my (breasts) because they’re so small — people really aren’t that interested!”
Larger breasts are popular in Hollywood, so Keira Knightley describes how multiple film studios have been photoshopping film stills and posters in order to make her chest look larger than reality.
“They always pencil in my boobs,” she laughed. “I was only angry when they were really droopy. For ‘King Arthur,’ for a poster, they gave me these really strange droopy t–s … I thought, well if you’re going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make perky breasts.”
Keira Knightley has denied all rumors of anorexia, or other eating disorders.
“The anorexic stuff — all of that — it’s always going to have an impact, so I think it did hit pretty hard,” she said. “Because you go, oh, maybe that’s right! I knew I wasn’t anorexic, but maybe my body is somehow not right. You kind of just want to hide it all.”
