"I've had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it's paparazzi photographers or for film posters," the actress, 29, said. "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."
Among other images that misrepresented her body, Knightley had her breasts beefed up for the "King Arthur" movie poster -- even though she'd said that her bust had actually diminished while preparing for the role, thanks to strength exercises.
