Keira Knightley On Having Body Anxiety Issues

In an interview with Vogue magazine, the Pirates of the Caribbean star said, “I don’t think anybody is completely comfortable in their body. Firstly, it’s the superficial thing of seeing your flaws on the screen. That’s probably going to be all that you see and you focus on the bits you don’t particularly like. But I’ve had to get over my own body anxiety issues so it doesn’t get in the way of telling the story. I’ve never seen myself as being attractive in that glamorous way.”

Keira Knightley added, “I’m incredibly self-conscious about a lot of parts of it, but equally, I’m aware that it works in certain environments. If you are using your face, if you’re selling it, then you become so aware of the flaws because people tell you. And they do so brusquely. So then you start seeing it.”

The actress stated that the anxiety she has about her body is complex. If someone asks her to stand in the room and take her clothes off, she will say no. Keira also said that she feels incredibly shy about going out in a bathing costume in a swimming pool. Further, about body image anxiety, Keira Knightley shared an anecdote about going on a holiday with her friends in France. They were all lying out at the beach. People took off their clothes and had fun, but Keira said she just wore jeans and a top. She didn’t want to take anything off.

On the work front, Keira Knightley was last seen in Boston Strangler in 2023. Directed by Matt Ruskin, the film also stars Carrie Coon, Alessandro Nivola, David Dastmalchian and Morgan Spector. The film received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. She’s also a part of an upcoming Netflix series called Black Doves.
