I Cannot Hate On Photoshopping And Photo Retouching

I’ve been taking self-portraits for the entire two years that I’ve been doing photography — that’s why I bought a DSLR camera to begin with, actually. I’ve Photoshopped every single photo of myself I’ve ever presented on Flickr, on my web site, on LinkedIn, Reddit — anywhere. I’m not ashamed of that. Keep reading »

Keira Knightley Poses Topless And Unretouched In Interview Magazine

“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.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are. … I think women’s bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame. Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape.”

Keira Knightley was tired of retouchers Photoshopping her out of the Itty-Bitty Tittie Committee over the years, so when Interview magazine asked her to pose topless, she had one very firm request, she told The Times: No. Changing. Anything. The result isn’t particularly shocking — as a slender woman, she hasn’t had to deal with her overall body shape being altered — but it’s definitely refreshing to see she’s got one breast that’s slightly bigger than the other and little armpit chub, just like me. See the NSFW version (NIPPLESSSS) after the jump! [The Times via TIME; Interview] Keep reading »

Keira Knightley Poses Wet & Topless For Interview Magazine

Keira Knightley Poses Wet & Topless For Interview Magazine

Bee stings represent! Proud itty-bitty titty committee member Keira Knightley has dropped her top and gotten drenched for the latest issue of Interview, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. Looking at the technically NSFW, uncensored photo (after the jump), I’m reminded of just how silly it is that women’s nipples are sexualized, while men’s nipples are not. I say this even as I have censored Keira’s nips on the homepage, because again, lady nipples = SUPER SEXUAL PORN. But it’s so dumb. If you’re a small-busted woman like Keira, your chest really isn’t any different looking from the average dude’s. That’s not an insult, that’s just a fact. I’m not taking up #FreeTheNipple as my cause of choice or anything, but seriously, nipples — who cares? [Interview] Keep reading »

Keira Knightley Would Like You To Know That “Love Actually” Is A Cinematic Legend

“It’s obviously the greatest movie ever made.”

I adore “Love Actually,” and I will never understand why it’s attracted such a legion of haters, but I think Keira Knightley is going a bit too far in saying it’s best movie ever. In an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” interviewers mentioned film critics’ long-lasting conundrum over whether the rom com was a blessing or a curse to Hollywood, and Knightley insisted “Love Actually” should be shown on cable more often than it already is. I’m really hoping she was joking. Keira, there are so many quality movies out there that don’t involve Hugh Grant dancing and creepy doorstep love confessions! Maybe her new film “Begin Again” will even be a contender, if only for scenes of her with wonderful Mark Ruffalo and all that summery footage of New York City. [TIME]

Keira Knightley Thinks It’s Weird That Feminism Was Ever A Dirty Word

“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, fucking shut up.’ Somehow, it [feminism] became a dirty word. I thought it was really weird for a long time, and I think it’s great that we’re coming out of that.”

I heartily agree, Keira Knightley! The actress talked to Harper’s Bazaar UK about, amongst other things, her feelings on feminism and her relief that feminist discussions have become more frequent and open. Check out the full interview at the link! [Harpers Bazaar UK]
