Actress Keira Knightley agreed to pose topless for an Interview magazine feature on one condition: She didn't want her body modified with Photoshop. After her unedited shoot with fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier hit newsstands, Knightley explained to the Times ,. I've had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it's paparazzi photographers or for film posters. 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. Knightley's stance on photographic nudity may come, at least in part, from having been burned before.
This Topless Photo of Keira Knightley Came With a No-Photoshop Clause

Keira Knightley recently posed topless in Interview Magazine as her own personal protest against photoshopping. Knightley told The Times she demanded the not safe for work photos be unedited so people could see what she really looked like. Though the studio bore the brunt of that scandal, the actress herself came under fire in when she and Scarlett Johansson posed nude with a fully clothed Tom Ford on the cover of Vanity Fair , in a picture that emphasized the gap the demands made of famous women and men in terms of playing up their sexuality. Rachel McAdams reportedly skipped the shoot after realizing the women would be asked to pose in the buff. But Knightley is taking a stand now. She has turned down many a role because she thought she was being asked to do things male actors are never asked to do—specifically gratuitous sex and violence.
Keira Knightley had body double for nude scenes in 'The Aftermath'
Love, loss, betrayal and remorse underpin The Aftermath, with Keira Knightley portraying a grieving mother and wife in search of understanding and reconciliation, in post-war Germany. Having already appeared in two acclaimed World War II sagas - The Imitation Game and Atonement - it might seem like Keira Knightley is retreading well-worn ground by starring in The Aftermath, yet another war-based drama. But Knightley insists there's something "different and intriguing" about her latest war escapade, which compelled her to join up to it. It really opened up my eyes to what it must have been like for that generation, just after the war, on a personal, physical and political level as they tried to rebuild their lives, their cities and their continent. There was also another compelling reason for Knightley's appearance in The Aftermath — the opportunity to rekindle her on-screen relationship with Jason Clarke, who she'd previously starred alongside in Everest, as his wife Jan Hall.
Speaking to Jonathan Ross in , the British actress revealed that she has a very specific nudity policy, one that favours the top half of her body. So, for a scene in her dismal Tony Scott action movie Domino in which her character performs a striptease, Knightley requested a butt double. The girl we picked had a lovely bottom. In weirder Keira Knightley body double trivia, she also hired one for Atonement.
