Actress Keira Knightley shows some skin in her December cover for Allure magazine, discussing body image and career.

Keira Knightley on Her Body: 'They Always Pencil in My Boobs'
Mario Testino for Allure

“They always pencil in my boobs,” Knightley explained to the mag about her slim figure. “I was only angry when they were really droopy. For ‘King Arthur,’ for a poster, they gave me these really strange droopy tits… I thought, well if you’re going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make perky breasts.”

She continued, “The anorexic stuff -- all of that -- it’s always going to have an impact, so I think it did hit pretty hard. Because you go, ‘Oh, maybe that’s right!’ I knew I wasn’t anorexic, but maybe my body is somehow not right."

On her career, Keira admitted, “It’s very, very hard on women who get older…I can say that when I’m 27, you know. Talk to me when I’m 37.”
