Keira Knightley Does Harper’s Bazaar

skinniest-days - Keira Knightley Does Harper's Bazaar

Long-time-no-see Keira Knightley is the cover girl off the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar – and inside, the gorgeous actress talks about becoming a mom and how her priorities changed compared to her skinniest days.

On the way pregnancy changed her body and changing her perspective:

“It’s a different body, as it should be, because it’s done an extraordinary thing…I thought I was going to go, “God, I’ve got to get back into shape.” I actually went completely the opposite. I went, “F**k that, I’m not putting that pressure on myself in any way.” So it’s taken me a long time to get back into my jeans. I’m nearly there. Not quite there, but nearly there…”

… says 31 year-old Keira, who gave birth to her first child, daughter Edie in May last year.

Keira Knightley Talks Brsuty and Hair

On British versus American beauty-maintenance:

“I think we Brits are very low-maintenance. For good or bad, you rarely walk around New York or LA and see women as grungy as you do in London. In the US they always have their hair and nails done, which isn’t big culturally in England. I am not a sleek person in any way. When I look sleek, I feel like I’m pretending.”

On her makeup style as a teenager:

“I wore smudgy black eyeliner. And I didn’t do anything with my skin until I started getting acne, at which point I did everything possible to get rid of it. I tried a million products, but none of them worked. I had bad skin up until I was 25. I later learned that it was more about diet and hormonal changes.”

On how her routine has changed now that she’s had a baby:

“I have naturally crazy, curly hair, and since I’ve had the baby it’s become 10 times thicker. So now I’ve been finding quite a lot of dreadlocks. Tangle Teezer, £10.60, is the only thing that works for detangling my dreadlocks….My new approach is, “Do what you can remember, and don’t worry about it too much.”’

On hair loss:

“I have dyed my hair virtually every colour imaginable for different films. It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head! So for the past five years I’ve used wigs, which is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair.”

On her best beauty advice:

“I was told very early on that if a make-up artist tries to take your eyebrows off, that means he or she is absolute s***.”

… says Keira.

On what she’s learned about her body since having a baby:

‘As a woman, you go through those periods where you look in the mirror and you think, ‘Oh, if only I had different legs or arms or whatever. And then, you go through pregnancy and labor and then feeding the kid and you go, “Wow, my body is totally amazing, and I’m never going to not like it again, because it did this, and this is f~~~ing extraordinary.”‘

On having similar looks with other actresses:

At the airport a woman mistook me for Anne Hathaway. Actually I think I have to apologise to Anne Hathaway because the woman (at the airport) thought I was being really rude as Anne Hathaway not giving her a picture as Anne Hathaway but I was really only saying that I promised I wasn’t Anne Hathaway — which I am not.’Actually it’s the first Anne Hathaway I have had. Generally I get a lot of Rachel Weisz and Natalie Portman.’

On becoming a mom:

I don’t want to deny my femininity. But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.

… says Keira, who is currently pregnant with her first child.

Keira Knightley: “It really doesn’t matter what shape you are”

FFN_f_51527368 - Keira Knightley: "It really doesn’t matter what shape you are"

On posing topless for a magazine:

‘I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters.
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.’

On how her b~~~~ were enhanced on for the promotional posters for King Arthur in 2004:

‘They painted my t**s on me for the films, which is extraordinary because it’s kind of a dying art form – in the past, they used to have whole sections of the studios devoted to bosom make-up. And I loved it, completely loved it. Because it was the first time in my life I had big t**s, and I didn’t even need surgery.’
