Keira Knightley revealed that she will no longer be getting naked on set for nude scenes. She addressed recently in an interview that motherhood had changed her perspective on the kinds of rules she wanted to take, and what made her comfortable on a film set.

Knightley told the Financial Times that she was "completely comfortable" filming nude scenes, but likely won't be doing it again. Her new motherhood has made her question more about her roles and what she wants to do on camera.

'I'm Really Happy With My Body,' Knightley Says


"I'm really happy with my body. It's done amazing things But I also don't want to stand there in front of a whole film crew," Knightley said 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!"

"I have been comfortable earlier with more nudity than I am now. I have had a kid, I am in my thirties, I am very happy with my body," Knightley explained.

Today's Scenes Are More Risque Than They Used to Be


Knightley also spoke about how today's sex scenes differ from the ones of the past. In 2008, she was topless for The Edge of Love, but it wasn't the same as it would be if it were filmed today.

"You can take the whole thing and put it in a completely different thing, and it's on some porn site," Knightley said. She stated that she even added a "no-nudity" clause to her contract. That way she had total control over what she's willing to do.

A Body Double?

Knightley also added that, "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 the final approval of what the edit is."

Knightley wanted fans to know that she's confident in her body, and that that doesn't have to do with her decision. She stated that she simply doesn't "need to get it out that much anymore."

Her Upcoming Role in 'Misbehavior'

Knightley revealed two years ago that she almost quit acting because of the pressures of Hollywood. It was giving her such bad PTSD that she had a mental breakdown in 2007.

However, she's back for a new role in the film Misbehavior. Knightley went on to address more questions about her body. She stated that,

"I always wanted to be top of the class, and I always wanted to be perfect. I tried being five pounds heavier, but then people say you have cellulite, and then five pounds lighter, and then you’re anorexic and causing people to die. It was just so much, but in a funny way I think I was quite lucky in that it was so insane that I sort of recognized it."
