Keira Knightley Goes Topless in Daring New Photos (NSFW)

Keira Knightly protests Photoshop, posts topless in magazine

In the 20+ years since Keira Knightley has been acting, she says she's seen her body "manipulated" and changed for countless different reasons—on movie posters, in magazines and pretty much everywhere else she's walked by and caught her own image. (The most notable example of this was of course that "King Arthur" poster from 2004, in which her chest was noticeably enhanced.)

But when she showed up to a photo shoot for Interview magazine back in September, the actress now reveals that she finally put a stop to it all—by posing completely topless, no Photoshop allowed.

"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," she told British newspaper The Times. "Because it does feel important to say it really doesn't matter what shape you are."

And so, for the mag's "Photographer Issue"—in which photographers were asked to depict their "ideal woman"—Keira let herself be captured as she really was: wet hair, bare chest and all, with absolutely no "fixes" to be made later on.

The results, as you might imagine, were absolutely gorgeous:

"I think women’s bodies are a battleground, and photography is partly to blame," continued the 29-year-old Knightley. "Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape."

For the record, we are loving just about everything Keira has to say on this matter, and couldn't agree more. But then again, the actress has been telling it like it is for some time now. You might remember the actress became quite outspoken back in February when an interview with Harper's Bazaar turned to feminism.

"I think it’s great that the discussions are finally being allowed to be had [about feminism], as opposed to anybody mentioning feminism and everybody going, 'Oh, f--ing shut up.' Somehow, [feminism] became a dirty word," she said at the time.
