Keira Knightley is standing up against Photoshop. After many controversial edits and enlargement, the “Imitation Game” star wants to show the world the untouched and natural portrayal of her body.

In an interview with The Times, Knightley discussed the anger and frustration of Photoshop, which she has endured throughout her career. “I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters. I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame,” Knightley said. “Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape.”

In 2004, when Knightley starred in the movie King Arthur, the image of her on the movie posters caused some buzz after it had been altered to give her larger breasts, which caused some trouble with the movie studio.


In a recent photo shoot for Interview Magazine, Knightley agreed to pose topless for photographer Patrick Demarchelier, with one condition; the image had to remain untouched or edited in any way.
“That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said: ‘OK, I’m fine doing the topless shot so long as you don’t make them any bigger or retouch.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are,'” the actress said.
