Actress Keira Knightley has put her foot down in Hollywood stating that she won’t do nude scenes anymore because she is a mother.
Keira Knightley, 33, who has daughter Edie with husband James Righton, requires a body double because the days of disrobing on scenes are over. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com reports Keira Knightley admits that she’s “been comfortable earlier with more nudity than I am now.”
Times have changed for Knightley told The Times:
I have had a kid, I am in my thirties, I am very happy with my body. But I don’t feel I need to get it out that much anymore. That was a choice. I get to choose the body double. It is an interesting selection process! It kind of goes like, ‘That’s a little bit like you, but better. She has a lovely body, so she can do this’… then I get final approval of what the edit is.
The actress shot to fame as a teenager with roles in movies including ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, ‘Love Actually’, and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, and has said criticism over her career.
Her changing body left her ”broken”, and eventually led to her suffering a mental breakdown when she was just 22 years old.
I was at a time in my life when I was still becoming. Like most young people, I hadn’t quite found who I was or what I was about. My body was changing, and I didn’t even know how I felt about myself and what I looked like. Yet all of a sudden, people were being very vocal with their views on me as a young woman and as an actress. I lost confidence in myself because I was made to feel that I didn’t deserve to be doing what I was doing.
Keira concludes by saying:
Looking back, that whole period between 19 and 23 is a big blur. I don’t remember it in a linear way because I think my coping mechanisms were kicking in and shutting a lot of it out. My world crashed when I was 22. Everything stopped working and I felt as if I was broken into tiny pieces; as if my brain was literally shattered.
We feel whatever makes her happy is what she needs to do. We love Keira.
