KeiraknightleynudechanelPoor Keira Knightley was so traumatized by all the critical press about being too skinny that she did the only thing a girl can do:

She took off all her clothes. For a Chanel ad. So there.

She’s told press that she did it to make her feel less "inadequate" about her body.

I bet she feels better already. And that big fat Chanel check probably helped dispel all those baseless feelings of inadequacy.

The actress wears nothing but a bowler hat in the print ads for Chanel’s new Coco Mademoiselle fragrance. Shades of "The Unbearable Lightness of Being."

In the TV commercials, shot by her "Pride and Prejudice" and "Atonement" director, Joe Wright, she slips into a crimson gown and dashes playfully around Paris with a mysterious man, as only the spritely actress can.
