Keira Knightley not prudish about nude scenes


Keira Knightley has no qualms about stripping off on screen because she is "not prudish when it comes to nudity."

The British actress has taken her clothes off on camera for films including "The Duchess" and "The Edge of Love" and she says she is not embarrassed to bare it all for a role.

She tells British newspaper The Mirror, "I'm not prudish when it comes to nudity. If the role calls for nudity, then I'm going to be naked. I'm not afraid to expose myself that way."

However, Knightley, who is engaged to Klaxons rocker James Righton, says she finds love more difficult to fake than passion.

She adds, "I'm much more worried about revealing personal sides to myself, which I find harder to do. The hardest thing to capture about love is the actual physical intimacy between two people.

"The way two people behave when they are next to each other and touching each other, holding hands, resting your head on your partner's shoulder. In your personal life, you generally don't think about the fact you're touching your partner. That's a difficult thing to capture on film."

To say she's not "prudish" about doing nude scenes implies that someone who would rather not do nude scenes is a prude.  Personally I think that nude scenes are just a gimmick the movie industry uses to try and take your attention away from a poorly made movie. Most television and movies these days are made for the lowest common denominator.

Too many people are way up tight about nudity. Is our body something to be ashamed of? If some people would not make such a big deal out of it, no one would even pay any attention.

Personally I feel she's a very talented, well spoken actress. If she can pull off doing nude scenes, then all power to her.
