Keira Knightley Denies Anorexia

Poor Keira. I guess denial is a major part of eating disorders. I wonder if she has seen these photos of herself because she sure looks sick. Here's more:

"Whatever people say about my weight they are all wrong."

Defending her appearance, the 21-year-old told PEOPLE, "Hollywood is all about the way you look, and I don't think that's the healthy thing for anyone. But, if you're strong and comfortable with yourself, then you're going to be fine."

On Tuesday she addressed the rumors again, saying she was surprised by the suggestion that she had an eating disorder. "(The press) said to me yesterday 'How does it feel to be called anorexic?' and I had no idea that I was," Knightley told the Associated Press. "I'm not saying there aren't people in the film industry that suffer from it, because I am sure that there are. But I'm quite sure I don't have it."

Still, she said there's nothing to worry about. "I've got a lot of experience with anorexia – my grandmother and great-grandmother suffered from it, and I had a lot of friends at school who suffered from it," Knightley said. "I know it's not something to be taken lightly and I don't."

It's called having money and being able to afford a nutritionist. One of my best friends was that skinny up until college. Here's another word: metabolism. If she were that bad off, you'd see her sternum. -Bug

Ya, she definitely isn't anorexic. She is too headstrong and fiesty to care what anyone thinks ... I think she sees herself as a confident young beauty and she is just thin !!!!!

Thanks for all kind welcome messages. You're making me feel all warm and fuzzy. =) I wonder if she's started to work out? Or just more active/busy in general? Just because someone is skinny doesn't mean they're healthy, and just because someone is overweight, doesn't mean their UNhealthy. I do have a problem with her posture sometimes... back straight honey! And she's not always pouting, in the second photo she has a nice big smile!

I can't imagine her anorexic ... She is definitely very thin, but she strikes me as someone who doesn't give a hoot what anyone thinks ... She is one tough fiesty cookie !!! I think she just has a speedy metabolism.

i think she's way too thin but not anorexic. my husband thinks she's nasty as well but smelly or not IMHO she is absolutely beautiful.

Pink angel monkey, thank you honey, you would be surprised how much bigotry there is out there. lucky for me that when i beat my chest and say 'come on you f*ckers, lets see what you got' i make sure i have a back door handy and i can slip my shoes off and run!

I believe lil chickie could be thought of as skinny, why not? That's kind of assuming that everyone who posts here is Orca. I'm skinny too. And? Popsugar us a place with a varied type of reader - chubby, skinny, young, old, male, female, etc. Generalizing based on comments one makes is a really dangerous precedent to set, and Pop doesn't allow personal attacks on other members anyway, so why don't those of us who are doing that kindly refrain, for Pop.

She's definately not anorexic, just skinny. Looking at a girl's wrists is the best way to judge if she's ana or not. If they look healthy and normal then chances are she just has a naturally thin frame, but if they look freakishly boney then she probably has anorexia.

Blah, blah, blah. Clearly, she needs food. And, I don't doubt there are issues with food as it relates to the ever presssing image concerns in Hollywood. Now, on with more important questions: What are the human skulls all about in the background? Her sneering smile coupled with the skulls look positively creepy.

Kiera is gorgeous I think, but this dress didn't do her any favours at all. She's very skinny but I believe her that she isn't anorexic.

She may be naturally small but she looks pretty harsh in those pictures. I think shooting a film, doing the press junket, interviews, opening nights..it gets crazy and who wouldn't drop weight doing all that running around? That said i think this ultra thin trend in Hollywood is a nightmare. Someone posted that they weren't influenced to be thin by seeing these girls but younger girls are. 12 year old girls idolize people like Lohan and Nicole Richie and Paris and all of em are thin as rails... It sucks!

Not the ones that want to smash your head in for talking to their girlfriend nor the ones who want to rape you to 'sort you out' - i copped more hate than most cos im so lound and blunt and tend to dance where angels fear to tread. also i get wound up and tend to punch on with the boys. a couple of times i took on more guys than i could handle.
