Keira Knightley on topless shoots

Keira Knightley says she's happy to do topless shoots - as long as her image isn't retouched.

The actress, who is married to musician James Righton, was snapped without anything on her upper body - except a pair of long gloves - for Interview magazine.

She told The Times newspaper: "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."

Keira, who stars opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in new movie The Imitation Game, said : "I've had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it's paparazzi photographers or for film posters."

She said: "I think women's bodies are a battleground and photography is partly to blame.... Our society is so photographic now, it becomes more difficult to see all of those different varieties of shape.

"Which is why I'm so glad feminism is back on the table."
