With the recent emergence of viral campaigns by several leading companies such as Dove
against photoshopping and women’s body-shaming, actress Keira Knightley has once again come out as a contender in the movement, which hopes to spread body positivity amongst the female community.
Previously known for having spoken out against photoshopping, such as in her King Arthur
movie poster, Knightley has now stepped out and posed topless for Interview Magazine
During her interview with The Times Of London
, she recalled having blatantly told the magazine that she would only go through with the shoot if her chest was in no way photoshopped to be larger in the resulting photos, since Knightley considers this a strategy against the photoshopping rampant in today’s media.
Unlike the nude hack which defamed many of Hollywood’s leading ladies not a month ago, Knightley takes baring it all as a way for her to spread the message to the masses that women’s bodies are indeed perfect the way they are, and the use of photoshop and airbrushing, etc. disregards that fact. With The Times of London
, she went on to share her experience and personal feelings about the debacle as well, and was quoted as saying:
I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or film posters. I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame. You need tremendous skill to be able to 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.
