Keira Knightley is the new celebrity to join the list of Hollywood beauties who have taken a stand against Photoshop. In the new photo spread for Interview magazine, Keira Knightley has taken a stand against Photoshop and posed topless during the shoot. Fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier captured the 29-year-old for the magazine's September issue, themed The Photographer's issue.
Knightley is gracing one of its six covers. Also featured on the other five covers are Nicole Kidman (shot by Steven Klein), Naomi Campbell (Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott), Amber Valletta (Craig McDean), Lea Seydoux (Peter Lindbergh) and Daria Werbowy (Mikael Jansson).
In reference to her unedited topless photo shoot for Interview magazine, Knightley told The Times, a British newspaper, "I've had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it's paparazzi photographers or for film posters. That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said: ‘OK, I'm fine doing the topless shot so long as you don't make them any bigger or retouch.' Because it does feel important to say it really doesn't matter what shape you are."
It is not just Keira Knightley who has spoken against photoshop. There are other gorgeous A-listers and singers as well who have raised their voice against photoshop scandals. Take a look.
She is the new beauty to take a stand along with other celebrities against Photoshop. In the promotional poster for "King Arthur," Knightley's breasts were drastically enhanced from the original image. So, she protested against it saying, "Those things certainly weren't mine." She posed topless for Interview magazine to protest against photoshop.
The curvy star has been criticised a lot of times for photoshopping her pics which is untrue. Her worst was when H&M attempted to alter her image when she was dressed in the brand's swimwear collection. Beyonce did not like the idea of hiding her original body through photoshop, so the brand had to release the original images. Yes, these are her real curves!
Kim is always being scrutinized for the photos she posts on Instagram and Twitter. When Kim posted this pic with Blac Chyna, she was criticised for manipulating fans through photoshop. Kim cleared by writing on Twitter, "It sucks when people make up surgery or Photoshop lies when I am so disciplined & work so hard! Just trying to motivate others & show anyone struggling with weight they can totally achieve whatever they want if they are dedicated!"
The supermodel got really pissed with Elle magazine's Brazil cover as she doesn't like to pose nude. This cover of Elle hid her bodysuit worn underneath and Coco wrote on her blog, "For my recent Elle Brazil cover shoot I wore a body suit under a sheer dress, but recently discovered that the body suit was Photoshopped out to give the impression that I am showing much more skin than I actually was or am comfortable with. This was specifically against my expressed verbal and written direction. I'm extremely disappointed that my wishes and contract were ignored."
Even Victoria's Secret Angel, Gisele spoke against photoshop. When she campaigned in her natural look for BLK DNM, the supermodel said, "I love his approach because I feel like women should be really real and raw and it doesn't really happen anymore [in fashion photographs]. I love that feeling of, you know, we are women, we are so different, our imperfections are what make us unique and beautiful."
Brad wanted to show his ageing lines and flaws. The actor chose to be photographed by Chuck Close for this cover of W magazine as Chuck with his camera lens expose intricate flaws and features.
Trying to be honest, Lady Gaga spoke against Photoshop after her pic on Glamour magazine's cover looked much different than she actually is. She said at Glamour Women of the Year Awards in 2013, "I felt my skin looked too perfect. I felt my hair looked too soft. I do not look like this when I wake up in the morning." Gaga further said, "It is fair to write about the change in your magazines. But what I want to see is the change on your covers... When the covers change, that's when culture changes."
