Keira Knightley won’t act in sex scenes directed by men

Throughout a look on the Chanel Links podcast, the starlet stated “It’s partly vanity and also it’s the male gaze” for why she does not wish to shoot such scenes under the instructions of a male.

Knightley spoke to “The Farewell” filmmaker Lulu Wang and writer-producer Diane Solway about Knightley’s choice to include a no nudity stipulation to her agreement given that she ended up being a mom.

“If I was making a story that was about that journey of motherhood and body acceptance, I feel like, I’m sorry, but that would have to be with a female filmmaker,” she stated.

The “Misbehaviour” star included “I don’t want it to be those horrible sex scenes where you’re all greased up and everybody is grunting. I’m not interested in doing that.”

“Saying that, there’s times where I go, ‘Yeah, I completely see where this sex would be really good in this film and you basically just need somebody to look hot,'” Knightley stated. “So therefore you can use somebody else because I’m too vain and the body has had two children now and I’d just rather not stand in front of a group of men naked.”

Knightley invited child Edie in 2015 and child Delilah in 2019 with partner, artist James Righton.
