Keira Knightley won't do any more sex scenes unless they are filmed by women


Film fans can forget about any more saucy scenes involving Keira Knightley – unless a female director is calling the shots.

The Love Actually and Bend It Like Beckham star says the thought of acting out steamy storylines now fills her with dread.

Keira says sex scenes with male directors leaves her feeling “very uncomfortable” – and she doesn’t see herself doing another.

They became so unbearable that she now often has a “no nudity” clause written into her contracts.

Speaking on the Chanel Connects podcast, the mum-of-two outlined why she now says no when the subject crops up in negotiations.

Keira said: “It’s partly vanity and also it’s the male gaze. I don’t have an absolute ban, but I kind of do with men.

“I don’t want it to be those horrible sex scenes where you’re all greased up and everybody is grunting.

“I’m just not interested in doing that.”

The 35-year-old actress hasn’t totally ruled out stripping off again but it would have to be totally right.

She suggested such a scene would need to be part of a story about motherhood – and a woman would need to be in charge.

She added: “If I was making a story that was about that journey of motherhood and body exception I feel like, I’m sorry, but that would have to be with a female filmmaker.

“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’.

“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.”

Last week she told the podcast about her bitter paparazzi experiences.

“It is brutal for young women within this industry,” she said.

“Being followed around 24/7 by packs of up to 30 men with their lenses, through my windows and being called a whore every time I left the house in order to invoke a reaction because the pictures were worth more if I was crying.”
