Well the article I found to describe her words and actions isn’t the best; I wanted to still point to a bit of news that popped up and made me smile:
Keira Knightley has refused to allow any enhancement of her cleavage on publicity photos for her upcoming movie, “The Duchess,” Britain’s Daily Mail reports.
Studio heads reportedly want to enlarge Knightley’s bosom in the photos, but the actress, 23, put her foot down.
“She has insisted that her figure stay in its natural state,” an insider said. “She is proud of her body and doesn’t want it altered.”
Good on you Kiera! No matter our shape/size; coming to terms with what we have (or don’t, as the case may be) is difficult enough when you DON’T have studios and cameras and the media obsessed with every bit of your life and your body. Having an actress do so in the face of all the blatant airbrushing these days gives me hope for the future.
Knightley has expressed dissatisfaction with her small bustline. “I would love to have [breasts]!” she told Britain’s GMTV last year, adding, “I’m never going to get [them]. I’m naturally who I am.”
How perfectly to sum up that while YES you might sometimes dream of being something else (in size, shape, fashion, lifestyle, etc), that dream doesn’t have to take over your life and negate any self-acceptance you might have for who you ARE. Kudos Kiera, Kudos.
