She stated she would consider performing naked again, but only under the female direction

The British actress, 35, has starred in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and Atonement. She suggested such scenes would need to be part of telling a story about motherhood.

According to Sun, asked why she often has a “no nudity” clause written into her movie contracts.  Keira replied: “It’s partly vanity and also it’s the male gaze.

“If I was making a story that was about that journey of motherhood and body exception I feel like, I’m sorry, but that would have to be with a female film-maker.

“I don’t have an absolute ban, but I kind of do with men.

“I don’t want it to be those horrible sex scenes where you’re all greased up and everybody is grunting. I’m not interested in doing that.”

The married mum of two said if the story was about motherhood and “how extraordinary that body is” she would “be up for exploring that with a woman who would understand that”.

She said: “I feel very uncomfortable now trying to portray the male gaze.”

Speaking on the Chanel Connects podcast, Keira continued: “Saying that, there are times where I go, ‘Yeah, I completely see where this sex would be really good in this film and you basically just need somebody to look hot’.

“So therefore you can use somebody else because 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.”

Keira began acting as a child and appeared in the Star Wars movie The Phantom Menace as a teen in 1999.

She was seen in nude romps in 2008’s The Edge of Love and 2018’s Colette — both directed by men.
