Keira Knightley Sues Over Eating Disorder Claims
The Pirates Of The Caribbean (PoTC) actress was pictured in the Daily Mail newspaper on the beach in a bikini alongside her boyfriend, the actor Rupert Friend, and remarks were made about her weight in an article about a girl who had died of anorexia.
According to the BBC, Keira claims that the article implies that she has been dishonest in denying having such a disorder.
A statement from her lawyers said that she will challenge the suggestion that she is responsible and to blame for the death of the teenage girl by setting a bad example.
Speaking after the premiere of PoTC: Dead Man's Chest in London last year, 21-year-old Keira said that although anorexia ran in her family she was "very sure" it did not affect her.
"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, so I know it's not something to be taken lightly and I don't," she said.
"But I don't have it, I am very sure of that."
