Keira Knightly Will Sue Your Ass For Speculating About Her Weight

January 23rd, 2007 // 4 Comments

BBC News reports that Keira Knightley is sueing a British newspaper for claiming she has anorexia.

Actress Keira Knightley has begun legal action against a newspaper publisher over suggestions she has lied about having an eating disorder.
The Daily Mail published a photograph of the 21-year-old on a beach, with remarks about her weight, in an article about a girl who had died of anorexia.

Ms Knightley claims the article implies she has been dishonest in denying having any such problems.

More on Keira’s lawsuit after the jump.


In a statement via her lawyers, Ms Knightley said she would also challenge the suggestion that she is responsible and to blame for the tragic death of the teenage girl by setting a bad example.

I’m in her corner for being bullshit that the paper claimed she was responsible for the girl’s death. But if all these stick women start getting litigious whenever someone speculates that they have an eating disorder, that’s going to be a lot of fatigued, shivering, bony celebs asking that the heat be turned up in the courtoom and instructing their lawyer that some hot water with lemon is fine and it’s ok, I had a handful of sunflower seeds on the way over, and then asking if sunflower seeds are fattening and then quickly exiting to vomit.

    If they had done nothing more than speculate about her weight she wouldn’t have sued.
    How do I know? Look at all the papers who did just that and who weren’t sued.

    Having said that, I think accusing someone of having a serious illness after they have very publically denied it is out of line and should be stopped. Unless there is evidence, which obviously isn’t the case here.

    Normally chicks that skinny don’t really do it for me, but seeing her in that bikini with the nice nice abs sort of made my peepee straight.

    Most stick-thin women use ana* or bulemia to stay that way. It’s no secret.


  4. If your anorexic bolemic or any deficiency you have muscular atrophy and those are not wasted abs furthermore the pictures of her on the beach with water dripping down the water is gliding off important because eating disorder causes people to develop a thick fur all over the body
