This is not the first time a famous actress has made such a decision. What is the reason for it?
Keira Knightley is known, among others. from the films “The Duchess”, “Atonement” and “Pirates of the Caribbean”. She recently chose not to participate in any strip scenes or sex scenes in films directed by men.
She announced everything during the recording in the Channel Connects podcast. It was not the first time she had made such a decision. When she became a mother (in 2015), she already refused to show her body in films. Interestingly, in 2019, in the movie “At Home Another”, during the intimate scene of her heroine, she played her double, which the actress chose herself.
As reported by Polsat NewsKeira, after giving birth to two children, added a special clause to the contract. All because the actress feels uncomfortable when she has to fit into the male point of view in the movies. At the same time, he understands that some directors need someone who will look attractive.
“My body is after having two babies, and I’d rather not stand naked in front of a group of men,” she says.
However, she is still open to getting involved in a project that would show the path of motherhood and body acceptance, but could only be realized with the director.
Keira is heavily involved in the popular #MeToo movement and opposes the objectification of women. He is involved in productions dealing with the topic of discrimination. The last film she starred in, “Rebellious Miss”, tells the story of the Miss World Lodyna competition in 1970, to which the organizers only invite white women. Keira plays a feminist activist there.
Interestingly, from the beginning of the #MeToo movement, there are “intimacy coordinators” in the film industry who oversee erotic scenes and provide actors with comfort and respect while filming such scenes.
