Quote of the Day

"She is proud of her body and doesn't want it altered."—A source close to actress Keira Knightley, who has "refused to allow her cleavage to be enhanced on publicity photos for her upcoming movie The Duchess, according to reports. Film studios bosses apparently wanted to enlarge Knightley's assets in the photos so she appears more buxom in her low-cut period costumes, but the actress has put her foot down and said no."

(As before, yes, I know there are constant reports that she is anorexic, but considering in candid papz shots not at ritualized post-starving celebrations premieres / award shows, she generally looks like a healthy young woman—as opposed to, say, this—and bearing in mind that I always see pictures of her walking everywhere, which is what you do in London, instead of taking limos everywhere, I'm disinclined to let the accusations preempt a commendation of her continued forthrightness about the beauty illusion. YMMV.)
