Actress Keira Knightley ( The Imitation Game, Colette ) admitted that she felt uncomfortable getting under the ” gazes of men” while filming intimate scenes.

In the Chanel Connects podcast, Knightley said that after becoming a mother, she decided to add a clause to her contract refusing to act in nude, writes Variety.

“This is a man’s gazing. If I were to film a story about a journey through motherhood and acceptance of my body, I think it must be a female director, ”Knightley said.

“I don’t want those awful sex scenes where you’re all oiled up and all grunting. I’m not interested in this, the actress continued. – I am very uncomfortable now describing male gazing. There are times when I say, “Yes, I totally understand that this sex would be really good in this movie and you just need someone to look hot.” So you can use someone else … This body now has two children, and I would rather not stand naked in front of a group of men. “
