English actress Keira Knightley also stated that due to her male point of view, she is no longer included in the sexuality scenes in male directors’ movies.
35-year-old famous British actress Keira Knightley made a statement that caused controversy in the film industry.
Keira Knightley explained that due to the male point of view, male directors are no longer included in the sex scenes of their movies. Keira Knightley, who is married to musician James Righton, said that if a movie is directed by a male director, the work refuses to appear in sex scenes.
Speaking on the radio series of French fashion giant Chanel, the actress said she was very uncomfortable showing her body on a movie set since she gave birth to her two daughters.
Stating that part of this thought is due to pride and some to the male gaze, Keira Knightley said, “I am very proud, now I have a body with two children and I prefer not to stand naked in front of a group of men.”
Emphasizing that she feels as if she is also on a journey to accept her body during her motherhood journey, the artist said that this was a decision against male directors.
Knightley stated that the decision only covered male directors, and that female directors’ films could take place in sexuality scenes.
The actress has previously appeared in daring scenes in movies such as Atonement, After the War, and Colette.
