It's a lie
By the way, in case you didn't get the point of the Naked post, it's patently not true that female actors have to be a certain weight to look "Fuckable" on camera.
There is no reason other than misogyny for Keira Knightley to look like a concentration camp survivor and be praised in magazines like Entertainment Weekly for her high "style" in "Atonement."
If you doubt me, go back and look at her six pack in her breakout film "Bend it Like Beckham." Back when her starving body hadn't consumed all of its own muscle tissue.
Time's up, people. Get on board the truth train.
Because the next stop is sexual agency, where it doesn't matter if a lead female character is "Fuckable" or not.
Usurp this gaze, fuckers.
