Keira Knightley agreed to topless shoot for Interview Magazine only if her boobs weren’t photoshopped

The media obsession with the woman’s body

 

Keira Knightley has revealed that she only agreed to do the topless shoot with Interview magazine only if they agreed not to edit her boobs. The actress bemoaned the media craze for achieving a picture perfect woman’s body.

“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 told The Times.

“That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said, ‘Okay, 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.”

The model’s shoot for the magazine’s September issue was received with mixed reactions. While some critics branded it a PR exercise to give her leverage against competition, while some hailed it as victory for small chested women.

“I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame,” she continued. “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.”
