Keira Knightley Agreed to Topless 'Interview' Shoot Because They Didn't Retouch It

Keira Knightley Agreed to Topless 'Interview' Shoot Because They Didn't Retouch It

Keira Knightley is opening up about why she decided to pose topless for Interview magazine’s September issue.

The 29-year-old actress was down to do it because the glossy agreed to not use Photoshop to alter her body in any way.

“I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters,” Keira told the British paper The Times (via Jezebel). “That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said: ‘OK, I’m fine doing the topless shot so long as you don’t make them any bigger or retouch.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are.”

She added, “I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame. Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about Keira Knightley’s decision to do the shoot?

  • WTF

    It is really interesting, other celebs get bashed left and right for being topless on covers, but as soon as it is Keira Kneightly she gets a pass from the majority. Hypocrisy at its best. SMH

  • MSHA

    YOU are the problem. She is more woman than you will ever be or get depending on your gender. large breasts do not define a girl or a woman. Grow up or shut up.

  • MY

    Love her and good for her! Wonderful actress and she actually stands up for women’s rights by being proud of her body!

  • MY

    She’s none of these things and I find it utterly disgusting that you feel the need to name call an actress in order to defend another actress. You are obviously part of the problem.

  • anon

    Because their husbands or their boyfriends don’t fucking own their bodies. Their bodies are THEIR own to do with as they like,if they want to show their bodies to the world then that is THEIR choice

  • Steve

    Because they cant handle not being the center in the world and the best way of being the center of the world (talking about celebs) is posing naked again and again, but the worst is when they talk about women rights despite trying hard to be sex objects, otherwise they are left off maxim

  • Steve


  • soggybiscuit

    but you retouched with yellow dots, why?

  • Steve

    So women has to prove they are women by taking off their clothes ??

  • MSHA

    Seriouly?? Did you even read the comment i was responding too? My comment has nothing to do with taking off clothes. I was resonding to that person calling her a boy because she has small breasts. Her being topless is completely irrelevant. Her breasts are the same size covered or not covered.

  • Steve

    i know it, and despite of that i´m talking about those actresses who are always taking off her clothes again and again to be the center of the world
