London (ANI): Actress Keira Knightley has shunned reports that her image in new ads for fashion house Chanel has been digitally enhanced. The Pride and Prejudice star insists that all the curves in the picture are 100 percent her own. The 22-year-old actress, who recently became the face of new fragrance Coco Mademoiselle, has always dismissed rumours that her skinny frame is due to an eating disorder.
And now, the Pirates of the Caribbean star asserts that suggestions of her breasts being boosted through computerised graphics are groundless. "I haven't had curves added to my body for a perfume, I don't think - unless you've seen something I haven't," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
The actress has attributed her success in Hollywood to her svelte body. The Atonement star, who battled the world's obsession with her body image last year, asserted that she owes much of her fame to slim figure. "I mean I'm an actress and it's a tool, after all," Contactmusic quoted her as saying. "It's pretty much all I've got. I've got whatever's in my head, my face and my voice and then there's my body, and that's it. And I do trade on that, of course I do," she added.
She recently claimed that stripping for photos was a way of overcoming her insecurities about her body. The Oscar nominated star has posed nude holding just a bowler hat to cover her breasts for a Coco Chanel billboard poster. The actress, who has been honest about her thin frame, said that she grew up thinking that she looked 'weird" and 'too skinny".
