Keira Knightley Refuses to Do Nude Scenes Now That She's a Mother of Two

March 9, 2020

Keira Knightley is officially finished with taking on risqué roles in Hollywood.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Knightley opened up about how motherhood has changed her outlook on what she's comfortable doing on screen.

The actress and mother said she always felt "completely comfortable" filming nude scenes on camera, but revealed that will never happen again.

"I'm really happy with my body. It's done an amazing thing," Knightley said. "But I also don't want to stand there in front of a whole film crew."

She added, "I have been comfortable earlier with more nudity than I am now. I have had a kid, I am in my thirties, I am very happy with my body."

Knightley implied that today's sex scenes are a bit racier than the ones she's filmed in the past, like when the actress went topless for 2008's "The Edge of Love."

The mother of two has placed a no-nudity clause in her contract, saying this has given her "total control" over the sex scenes she appears in.

While the actress still has confidence in her body, she said she doesn't feel a "need to get it out that much anymore."

Fox News reported that Knightley will star in "Misbehaviour," a film which highlights a group of women who want to disrupt the 1970 Miss World beauty competition in 1979.
