Courtesy of MegaKeira Knightleyis a versatile actress who has been seen in everything from blockbusters to indies to period films. Throughout her career, she has been in films where she has been seen nude and in sex scenes. Now, since having children, she added a no-nudity clause to her contract. During an episode of the
Chanel Connectspodcast, the Oscar-nominated actress talked to filmmaker Lulu Wang and producer/journalist Diane Solway about how she is no longer willing to do nude or sex scenes — specifically with male directors.“It’s partly vanity and also it’s the male gaze,” she said on the podcast. “I feel very uncomfortable now trying to portray the male gaze.” headtopics.com
She understands that some directors need “somebody to look hot” and there are those “horrible sex scenes where you’re all greased up and everybody’s grunting”. For Knightley, she is at a point in her career where she is no longer interested in doing that. She understands the value of these types of scenes but she said that they can find someone else.

I don't understand why movies need sex scenes in general. Majority of the time, it doesn't even affect the story so you could just fade to black or have a door close to allude to it and nothing would change. Im more bothered she’s making the awkward Keira jaw face here 😂 Also men shouldn’t watch her movies with sex scenes
Somebody watched Portrait of a lady on fire 🔥 Meanwhile, people struggling to make ends meet during the coronavirus Good for her! 👏🏽👏🏽 Good for her. LOL who cares. That's not acceptable. I want you naked all the time! Little known hollywood secret, she got the Pirates part by sleeping with the producer. The entire crew knew it was going on. Just sayin
She should do whatever she feels is right for her. Just like any other actors should. What about the 'male gays'? Does that change anything for you Keira? lol It’s really all up to the actress or actor how they want to do those scenes so good on her for standing by what she’s comfortable with and not conforming to what others might want.
W Good for her, and I love how she explained the reasoning behind her decision. Ok Reasons to stan Keira Knightley ❤️ Good for her ✊🏽 Who? whyyyyy
