Actors are expected to be commit themselves entirely to their roles, and a lot of them put not just their heart and soul on the line, but also their bodies. However, for an increasing number of stars, they're drawing the line on just how far they'll go, and for whom.
Keira Knightley has appeared naked in sex scenes in a few of her films, but she's recently added a no-nudity clause to her contract. During an episode of the 'Chanel Connects' podcast, the actress talked about how, after having children, she's not willing to do naked or sex scenes, but specifically with male directors.
“It’s partly vanity and also it’s the male gaze,” she said. “I feel very uncomfortable now trying to portray the male gaze.”
Knightley said she understands the value of those sex scenes, but added, "I’m too vain and the body has had two children now and I’d just rather not stand in front of a group of men naked."
