I know this is not very popular but it's my opinion:

First when I saw Keira, approximately 2.5 years ago and, of course, the following months/years, I thought she was a very talented actress, of course she is still a talented actress, an a very natural women which has nothing to do with this typical starlet-life (not extremely luxurious, not a very great tendency of publicity etc.) but with this Vanitiy Fair photoshoot Keira is for me more than ever a boring, standard Hollywood b... which apparently does everything for money and publicity. Do you really think Keira has this done only for art? Definitely not! First was the Esquire-photoshoot, now Vanitiy Fair, what's next if the pay or/and publicity is good enough? Playboy?

Please do not understand me wrongly, I think Keira is a great actress and I don't have any problems with nudity but the trend in which Keira is going more and more, is completely sad. It can not be, that a nude-photo, like this ugly Vanitiy Fair photo, has more attention in the press as a performance by Keira in a movie. But now, it is so, and that shouldn't be in Keira's interests if she would like to be a serious actress.

I can't believe people (men) are upset at seeing keira naked (or nude). Has someone stolen your testicles?

So she isn't a serious actress because of posing for Vanity Fair ? Sorry but I don't understand You. And if she really want she'll pose even for Playboy or CKM etc. I have nothing against that. She's not a little girl...

Kate Winslet is a serious actress, She keeps getting great roles.
She has been nude several time, even full frontal nudity.

What he said.
And, why hasn't anyone said anything about Scarlett's participation? Doesn't the fact that we are seeing her bare ass diminish her standing as a serious actor?

I hadn't realized the guy who runs Keiraweb.com posted a rebuttal to everyone here who disagreed with Keira's decision to do the VF cover. He rambles on and on and doesn't take into account that different people will sometimes hold differing opinions. In other words, he reacts like the typical fanatic.

In fact, his first line seems to be directed at me:

Quote:
I am astonished and appalled at the reaction by Keira's fans to the publication of this arty little photo - or should I say former fans?


It's the February 8th entry:

It's pretty comical actually.

Hreh - 'the guy who runs Keiraweb' is KKW's very own Knightleynews, a.k.a. Paul, who used to provide KKW with Keira news and collect articles on his Keiraweb.com site - which slowly but surely has turned into The Place to be.

I'd say he disagrees with you, yeah

Perhaps the steam coming out of your ears obscured your vision for a while. After the first 25 emails of support for what I wrote I stopped counting them.

I don't see why this is such a big deal for everybody. And I don't see why you would stop being a fan of Keira because of this. I respect her and her descisions, she has every right of showing her (gorgeous) body if she wants to. I think it's a tasteful picture, except from that guy, he's a little disturbing.
A lot of great actresses have done artistic nude photos and appeared nude in a movie, this doesn't make them slutty or worse actresses. I think it shows that they are confident and doesn't care about what people think of them, they do what they want to do and are proud of it. That is something that I respect and I wish I would be more like that. But everyone has the right to their own opinion, otherwise it would be a very boring and unhappy world to live in.

I'm not entirely sure why certain people think nudity is so bad.
Frankly those who think whether you make the decision to pose nude has any affect on their talent, or their 'respect' for a celebrity goes down due to it are narrow minded.

I don't actually think the photo is that great. I don't think they have the bodies to really pull off a shot like that. I'm still in shock that they've hidden scarlett's breasts, as they are one of her many attactions.

Well in the states nudity is frowned upon, it's dirty, too much religious prudery in peoples lives.
