Keira Knightley poses topless to protest Photoshop

Keira Knightley is like store-brand macaroni and cheese (instead of, say, Velveeta) – you’ll eat it if it’s there, but you won’t be very happy about it. It’s pretty flavourless and doesn’t leave you satisfied but sometimes, you gotta do what you gotta do. She’s okay, really, but I could never quite warm to her, and that seems to be the general consensus. But what she’s done this month to protest Photoshopping.

According to Keira, people are always Photoshopping her, particularly because she’s really slim and doesn’t have a huge chest. When promotion for King Arthur, for instance, they made her boobs SO MUCH BIGGER in the promo posters. That’s a regular occurrence in her life, so she showed her REAL chest for Interview magazine (photo under the cut since it’s NSFW), and she had the following to say about it (via The Times):

I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters. 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.

Fair enough. Be proud of your body, girl – that goes for people of ALL shapes and sizes. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

  • I’ve grown to like Kiera as she gets older. When you compare her to the Ashley Green’s of the industry, Kiera has her sh*t together. And her fashion is tops. (<<< no clue where "tops" came from)

  • And, maybe the agents and directors did what they could to get you a job., spank, slap, slobbery whines.. her acting is rather rancid and banal..

  • are you guys crazy? what have you seen her acting in?
    try watching Pride and Prejudice or Domino
    I think she’s bloody fantastic

  • Honestly I don’t see the point in this. It’s very much like when FEMEN protest topless. Women understand what Knightley and FEMEN are talking about. We know shit is photoshopped. And men, who are the ones who very much need the message about body positivity or feminism, are oblivious because they’re seeing boobs. Most of the beauty/magazine industry is owned by men. They don’t care, and we’re never going to get them to care, not with tactics like these.
