Keira Talks Body Image

Posted by Kimberly on May 3rd, 2007

In the new issue of Elle Magazine, Keira Knightley has a lot to say about her weight. She’s been snapped on a few occasions baring her concave chest and looking thinner than she usually does, which of course sparked speculation of eating disorders. In the article she explains that she lost weight while filming Pirates of the Carribean, mainly because they were filming in “soaring heat” and she’s wearing heavy corsets and what not….makes sense.

On trying to gain weight, she says:
I took it very seriously. I went to the doctor to be checked out and asked him what I could do to put on weight. he told me that for someone my body type to get to a size 12 (which is about an 8 in the US), I would have to eat a lot of s*** food, stop exercising and drink loads.

About going to parties:
At parties, I stand on my own, grinning aimlessly. I can never thin of a thing to say. I wish I was Sienna Miller. I watch that girl and she’ just fabulous. She talks to everyone and laughs and smiles and looks as if she is genuinely enjoying herself. Please don’t wish for that, Keira.

And on fame in general:
The celebrity thing is completely crazy. I think I just have to move away or give it up altogether. I couldn’t have kids in the situation I’m in now. But I could just do something else. That’s probably what’s going to happen. I’m just not so hungry any more. I made a decision very recently that I wanted a life instead.

She also mentions that she does NOT like being “thinspiration” on pro-anorexia websites, and that ideally she’d rather have a curvy shape like Monica Bellucci.

Great pics (even thought he shoot is old), I still think she’s one of the top 3 prettiest females in Hollywood. And I love the styling. Check out the rest of the images on the flip side.
