Topless Keira Knightley Says Her Breasts Are Too Small

There are many reasons a woman might decide to go topless (many of them financial), but Keira Knightley might have the strangest reason of all for pulling out her breasts and going topless in the December issue of Allure. Apparently, we’re all lucky enough to get a decent look at her breast size because she feels they are “so small” they don’t even rank.

It sounds a silly, but most girls (myself included) are weird about some body parts and totally happy with others. Since there’s no nipple slip in the December issue, it’s not like Knightley’s decision was too scandalous, but if the magazine had asked to show her other body parts, she might have been a bit more self-conscious.

"Sex scenes in films—I'm quite rigorous about what gets exposed… No bottom half! I don't mind exposing my tits because they're so small—people really aren't that interested!"

Despite Knightley’s openness with her breasts and putting them into little (or at least, tight) costumes, sometimes the people creating posters for her movies don’t even roll with what they have. Knightley says that movie posters will often make her look as if she is more well-endowed than she actually is. Usually, it’s no big deal, but for the King Arthur posters, she was a little peeved.

"They always pencil in my boobs. I was only angry when they were really, really droopy. For King Arthur, for a poster, they gave me these strange droopy tits…I thought, Well, if you're going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make perky breasts."

Knightley has a tall, lithe body, and she seems to like it, so it’s a shame her body might be tweaked for the sake of a poster. Luckily, Allure didn't mess with her chest during the making of the issue, and she’s rocking it on the December cover.
