Keira Knightley says no to the intimate scene which directed by a male Director
Keira says she is uncomfortable with the male gaze and being a mother she doesn’t want to do the intimate scene anymore.
Hollywood actress Keira Knightley or Elizabeth of pride and prejudice, in an interview with Chanel Connects Podcast, said to director Lulu Wang and writer-producer Diane Solway that she doesn’t want to do the intimate scene any more which is directed by men. She also mentioned that it is not an absolute ban but only limited to men directors.
The reason for this decision she said: "It's partly vanity and also it's the male gaze". She is so serious about this since she become a mother in 2015 when she took step by adding a “no-nudity" clause in her films.
In the interview, she also said if the story was about the journey of motherhood and body acceptance, and which make her feel sensitive and sorry she would do the film but still, there is a female filmmaker available.
She continued that she understands some films need to feature nude scene but now she is not interested in horrible sex scenes where you're all greased up and everybody is grunting. She also added if a film can't be made without these scenes because it really good in this film and they basically just need somebody to look hot, so, therefore, they can use somebody else. Because at this time she is too vain to do these scene and has become a mother of two children which does not like to stand in front of a group of men naked.
Keira has worked in films such as pride and prejudice, Bend It Like Beckham, Atonement and Pirates of the Caribbean, Misbehaviour, a comedy-drama about the women's liberation movement in 1970s London.
