Straight from her press-tour with Benedict Cumberbatch for ‘The Immitation Game,’ Keira Knightley is stripping down for all of the right reasons. Knightley’s topless photo-shoot for Interview magazine came with a few rules and regulations from the popular actor. Keira Knightley explained her rules to the Times of London saying, “I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters.”
Knightley then added, “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,'” she continued. “Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are.”
It’s always an odd realization that even women and men as gorgeous as Knightley get touched-up after they leave the shoot. “I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame. It’s much easier to take a picture of somebody without a shape; it simply is. Whereas actually you need tremendous skill to be able get a woman’s shape and make it look like it does in life, which is always beautiful. But our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape,” she explained.
