Today, the 35-year-old explained how she feels ‘very comfortable’ doing passionate scenes with male directors around. Moreover, she commented on how uncomfortable it is to have your body exposed, ever since she gave birth to two daughters.
Call it insecurity, personal choice, or whatsoever-the starlet is loud and clear on what she firmly believes in.
A change worth noticing
In case you’re wondering what’s the big deal, well, Keira is famous for her racy and revealing roles. Some notable examples worth a mention include racy scenes in movies like Atonement, Colette, and The Aftermath. Now, it’s a whole different ballgame altogether.
Keira talked about how she would only agree to similar roles if she knew that the film director involved belonged to the female gender.
The famous celeb appeared on the Chanel Connects podcast where she talked in detail about her decision and personal choice.
“For me, it’s partly vanity, but also partly the male gaze,” she boldly explained.“In case I was making a real-life story about the journey to motherhood or a journey of the body and acceptance, I’m sorry but it would need to be with a female filmmaker.
In addition, the star added how she doesn’t have an absolute ban but at the same time, she does with the male gender.
Oscar nominee justifies the decision
The Official Secrets star mentioned how getting greased up with everybody grunting isn’t her cup of tea anymore. “I’m just not interested in doing that,” she explained.
While she did admit how some sex scenes do add an element of artistic expression into a movie, she boldly mentioned that ‘someone else’ should play them.
“I am just too vain now. My body had two kids now and I would just rather not stand naked with a group of men staring.”
Keira is more interested now in exploring how motherhood changes the female essence of relationships. Moreover, she believes it’s a journey that not too many people talk about. But it’s rare and raw, and something that intrigues her more than sex scenes with men watching.
Today, the star’s primary focus is her husband, singer James Righton as well as her two girls, Edie and Delilah.
