Keira Knightley: ‘I Knew I Wasn’t Anorexic’ During 2007 Uproar

By Radar Staff

British actress Keira Knightley addressed the longtime rumor of her eating disorder, saying that while she knew she wasn’t anorexic, the constant attention took a number on her psyche.

“The anorexic stuff — all of that — it’s always going to have an impact, so I think it did hit pretty hard,” she tells December’s Allure. “Because you go, ‘Oh, maybe that’s right!’

The Anna Karenina star said she knew she “wasn’t anorexic,” but the scrutiny left her second-guessing herself.

“Maybe my body is somehow not right,” the Never Let Me Go star wondered. “Or my face is not right. Or the way I speak is not right.”

The Academy Award-nominated Pride & Prejudice star, 27, said that “when you’re going through a period where you’re really getting a lot of criticism, you go, ‘Maybe all this is right! You just kind of want to hide it all.'”

“I’m quite rigorous about what gets exposed,” she told the magazine. “No bottom half! I don’t mind exposing my t**s because they’re so small — people really aren’t that interested.”
