Mr. Darcy would be scandalized.

In this month’s Allure, Keira Knightley explains that she’s “quite rigorous” about which parts of her body she’ll bare onscreen. Specifically: “No bottom half! I don’t mind exposing my tits because they’re so small — people really aren’t that interested!” You’d be surprised, Keira.

The Oscar nominee also laments the dramatic photoshopping her chest is often subjected to on movie posters and in ads: “For King Arthur, for a poster, they gave me these really strange droopy t-ts … I thought, well if you’re going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make perky breasts.”

Of course, Knightley’s cover interview isn’t all about showing skin. The Anna Karenina star also speaks out about the hurtful rumors that she had an eating disorder in 2007 — “I knew I wasn’t anorexic, but maybe my body is somehow not right. Or my face is not right. Or the way I speak is not right. When you’re going through a period where you’re really getting a lot of criticism, you go, Maybe all this is right!” — and her fiancé, Klaxons keyboardist James Righton.

No word on how he feels about her chest, though.
