The news that Keira Knightley posed topless coming out on the same day that the actress’s latest film Laggies premiered could make it seem that there is a connection here that does not have anything to do with feminism, her self image, or the issue of Photoshopping. The timing, to the more cynical, is certainly suspect and what better way to garner attention, especially if the topless torso belongs to an actress who is gorgeous more often than not. While the evidence does lead one to believe that this was just done to put Knightley’s image in the forefront in a bid to publicize the film, the truth appears to be just the opposite.
NBC have launched their nautical drama series Crossbones, starring John Malkovich and thus far the show is neither fish nor fowl and too wordy by far. Following AMC with their attempt at “period” drama the series’ makers cannot seem to decide just what they want the show to be.
