British actress Keira Knightley said on Monday that she will no longer shoot nude scenes for male-directed movies.
“I do not have in front of this [filmar escenas de desnudos] an absolute ban, but I do have it with men, “Knightley said during a Chanel Connects podcast. “It’s partly vanity and it’s also ‘male gaze’ [o ‘mirada masculina’, el concepto femenino sobre cómo los eventos se muestran desde el punto de vista de un hombre heterosexual]”, Explained
Although the Pirates of the Caribbean star acknowledged the need for some nudity in certain movies, she said she didn’t want it to be “those horrible sex scenes where you’re greased up and everyone is groaning.” “I’m not interested in doing that,” Knightley said.
“There are times when I say, ‘Yeah, I completely see where the sex would be really good in this movie, and you basically just need someone to look sexy,’ so you can use someone else. As I am too vain, and my body has already had two children, I prefer not to be naked in front of a group of men, “said the 35-year-old actress, who since 2015, when she became a mother, has included a clause ‘ no nudity ‘in their movie contracts.
Additionally, Knightley stated that if she is offered a film that focuses on female life experiences, she would insist on working with a female director. “If I were doing a story about that journey of motherhood and acceptance of the body, I would feel something like ‘I’m sorry, but that would have to be with a filmmaker,'” she said.
