Keira Knightley announced that she will no longer be getting naked on the film set for nude scenes. She revealed recently in an interview that motherhood had changed her perception of the kinds of rules she wanted to take, and what made her comfortable on a film set. Knightley told the Financial Times in an interview that she was completely comfortable filming nude scenes, but she won’t be doing it again. Her new motherhood has raised her concern more about her roles and what she wants to do on camera. Though Keira has criticized certain aspects of the #MeToo movement in the past, she has always been a big supporter of change in Hollywood.
At 34, Keira Knightley has decided to take control of how her body is portrayed in a movie. The actress has added something new in all her future movie contracts: a no-nudity clause. Now that she is the mother of two, she’s revealed that some of her perspectives have changed. In other words, her contracts needed an update. The no-nudity clause basically gives Knightley the final decisions on any nude scenes in future movies. She revealed that she also has control over body doubles. She gets to choose the body double for her. “It is an interesting selection process! It kind of goes like her body looks a little bit like you, but better. She has a beautiful body, so she can do this and that’…then I get the final decision of what the edit is.” Thus, even if a director insists on a nude scene in his or her film, Keira gets the final word.
In an interview with The Financial Times, Keira Knightley quickly guaranteed us that she doesn’t regret performing nude scenes in the past. She always felt completely comfortable doing it when she was younger. She never did anything that she didn’t feel comfortable about. Now, however, she simply doesn’t want to stand there in front of a whole film crew naked anymore. She said that she’s really happy with her body. Knightley explained, in reference to her and her husband James Righton’s two daughters, Edie (4) and Deliliah (6 months). She also added that The nipples droop, she has been more comfortable with nudity earlier than she’s now. Keira Knightley explained that she has kids, she’s in her thirties, and she’s very happy with her body.
Keira Knightley also spoke about how today’s nude scenes are different from the ones of the past. In 2008, she was topless for a movie called The Edge of Love, but it wasn’t the same as it would be if it were filmed today. She explained that anyone can take the whole thing and put it in a completely different thing, and it’ll end up on some porn site. She has now total control over what she’s willing to do. Keira revealed that two years ago that she almost quit acting because of the pressures Hollywood had over her. It was giving her such bad PTSD that she had a mental breakdown.
