Looking ghastly as ever, Keira Knightley somehow musters the strength needed for a shopping excursion in London over the weekend. Man, she looks so damn HOTTT - in that really gaunt, bulimic and spooky kind of way...
Keira Knightley is really thin.
But she's willing to go to court in order to prove she doesn't have an eating disorder. The actress is suing a British tabloid, saying it implied she lied about having an eating disorder.
At issue is a Jan. 11 story in the Daily Mail about a teenage girl who died of anorexia. It was illustrated with a shot of Knightley on a beach in a bikini.
The Pirates of the Caribbean actress, has "publicly denied suggestions that she might be anorexic or have a similar eating disorder," her lawyer, Simon Smith, said in a statement.
He said that any legal action will reiterate that denial. It might also include a Kate Bosworth photo in order to prove how much smaller actresses can get.
Knightley will "argue that the Mail's article suggests that she has dishonestly sought to mislead the public about whether she has anorexia or similar eating disorder and will show that she does not have anorexia."
Last summer, at the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest London premiere, the girlfriend of Rupert Friend emphatically denied that she suffers from anorexia. "I don't have it. I'm very sure I don't have it," she said.
She added that it's not something to take lightly because members of her family have suffered from it. We do agree. And hope stars such as Mischa Barton have a sense of humor when we mock them for their weight.
Putting rumors of their breakup to rest, Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend, her boyfriend of several months, bundle up for a dinner outing in London on Monday. See below:
Nice to see they're still an item. Maybe rumors of their split can finally be put to rest. A few lingering questions are not ready to be put to rest, however:
First, there were reports that Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend were engaged. Then, they weren't. Now, we have no idea.
But we do have a couple of anonymous sources willing to talk about the relationship!
One pal (maybe it was Scarlet Johannson, they hang out a lot) said:
"Keira's a really loving girlfriend but she's so insanely busy with work ... She's done everything in her power to make Rupert feel important but he still complains that he doesn't get enough attention, and it's causing real friction."
Does that mean this couple will go the way of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston?
Or is there still hope the pair will turn out like Prince William and Kate Middleton?
Another sources said Rupert has told pals he feels like the "fifth element," saying Keira puts family, friends, work and "everything else" before him.
The Hollywood Gossip says: suck it up, dude. You get to often make out with this beautiful star; we're left with nothing but Keira Knightley pictures.
Wanna trade spots?
It's October, and you know what that means -- lots and lots of Hollywood news, rumors and breasts here at the Gossip. Oh wait, that's every month.
What makes the 10th month of the year special is Halloween. Given that you always need a lot of ideas before narrowing them down, we've put together some great costumes for you to potentially use. See below, but beware: What you are about to see may scare the ever-loving $h!t out of you.

Scary! Going as any of the freakish ghouls you see above (from left-to-right, Keira Knightley, Kate Bosworth, crystal meth fiend Nicole Richie, whoremonger Lindsay Lohan, and former OC slut Mischa Barton) is guaranteed to scare the crap out of everyone at your Halloween party. The only downside? No Halloween candy. And if you go as Lohan, you have to stay in character and get busy with at least four guys in the bathroom.
This is an article about Keira Knightley's breasts. Enough said, right, fellas?
Cleavage was one area the Pirates of the Caribbean star did NOT discuss in a recent Elle interview, but she still found time recently to comment on the treatment of her boobs on movie posters in America. The young star is annoyed that her shots are always photoshopped for the U.S.
"I don't have any tits, so I can't show cleavage," she bemoaned. "But you're not actually allowed to be on a magazine cover in the U.S. without at least a C cup because it turns people off."
The chest - and we use that term loosely - of Nicole Ritchie might disagree with that statement.
"Apparently they have done market research and found that women want to see no less than a C cup on other women. Isn't that crazy? So they make my tits bigger."
Knightley says market research in this country shows that men want to see women with no less than a C cup on their cover models. Those pigs!
On the King Arthur poster (pictured), Keira's chest was noticeably larger - but at least they asked her permission:
"Those things certainly weren't mine. I remember we had an interesting discussion when they said, â€˜We want to make them slightly larger and you'll get approval', and I was like. â€˜Okay, fine. I honestly don't give a shit'."
Neither do most men.
Once you finish guffawing over the brilliant pun use in our headline, make time to pick up the August issue of Elle magazine. In it, you'll hear Pirates of the Caribbean swashbuckler, Orlando Bloom, gush about his co-star, Keira Knightley.
"She hasn't picked up any sort of entourage," Bloom said. "She surrounds herself with friends and family, which is key to maintaining a sense of reality even when everything seems unreal. She just possesses that rare grounded quality."
You'll also hear from the cover girl herself on topics such as:
Her Oscar nomination:
"For ages and ages, everybody was going, â€˜Oh, she's just a pretty face. She absolutely can't act.' And I was always going, â€˜Well, maybe they're right; I don't know.' So that at least shut them up for a while."
Her performance in Pride & Prejudice:
"I still have nightmares about that film. I wake up thinking, Oh sh-t, I should have played it like that or I should have done this like that. I can't watch it because I'll just be going, â€˜Why did you do that?'"
Whether she gets paid more to do nudity in films*:
"I've heard stories of actresses who, like, added a million to their contract if they did it, but I guess I started doing it so early on, people just go, â€˜Oh, you don't have to pay her more to do it. You'd have to pay her to keep them on."
What body part she would change:
"I hate my legs. They're awful. I'd make them longer and less wobbly. And I'd tone down my ass. That I could do very simply by just working out, but I obviously don't want it that much."
Her digitally enganced boobs on the King Arthur poster:
"â€¦they showed me the first copy and these things must have been double Es, and they were down to my knees. I was like, â€˜I don't mind you making them bigger, but don't give me fâ€"king droopy breasts! They look like your grandmother's t-ts.'"
Whether she's a good girlfriend**:
"No, I'm awful. I always have freak-outs. I don't know why anyone puts up with me. I'm mostly an emotional wreck."
Rachel McAdams walking out on the nude Vanity Fair cover shoot:
"It was actually pretty undramatic as I remember it. Quite early on Rachel just said, â€˜No, I'm not into that.' She's a lovely girl, and I really respect her for doing thatâ€¦Both me and Scarlett [Johansson] said, â€˜This is definitely something that we're up for.' So why not? It's something to show the grandchildren."
* Could someone let us know what movies Keira has been nude in?
** The Gossip volunteers to act as a boyfriend and find out about said emotion
Many a man -- including some staff members here at the Gossip -- would give up their right arms (or at least protein shakes) for a chance to get with Keira Knightley or Scarlett Johansson. So it's not shocking to see that the lucky guys who have successfully wooed the talented, kissable starlets could, at times, feel a tad insecure.
Sources say Knightley might be bringing out the green-eyed side, if you will, of beau Rupert Friend. Scotland's Sunday Mail claims the actress exchanged unpleasant words with her Pride & Prejudice co-star and steady boyfriend after she joined her Atonement co-star, James McAvoy, for an after-work drink.
"Keira did enjoy a night out with James, but they are just friends and everyone knows he is happily engaged [to actress Anne-Marie Duff]," a friend" of Knightley's. "She has told Rupert to get off her back or get out her life. Keira is a 21-year old girl and a bit of a free spirit."
The Pirates of the Caribbean star began dating Friend in December, a few months after she ended her two-year romance with Jamie Dornan.
Back on this side of the Atlantic, we have Johansson, who has been quietly dating Josh Hartnett for about a year. But, according to the New York Daily News, the actor was "a little anxious" last week when the blond beauty, 21, was whisked to Long Island's Hamptons by Wilmer Valderrama.
"Wilmer was out there for a party and arranged for a helicopter for Scarlett to come out, too. It was just to hang out, but Josh was not psyched about it," blabbed a source.
Understandable. Valderrama, who used to tang Lindsay Lohan as well, is a well-known womanizer. Somehow. Sigh.
In any case, Hartnett supposedly dialed his sought-after squeeze several times during her "innocent" night in the Hamptons.
"Finally, Scarlett just handed her phone to Wilmer and said, 'Talk to Josh. Tell him we're friends,'" recounts the inside source.
An awkward moment for Johnny Depp? Filming a kissing scene with his young (gorgeous!) co-star, Keira Knightly for Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest.
But what makes Knightly uncomfortable? Every time someone asks about her weight. At the London's premiere of Pirates on Monday night, she responded to a question about her figure with: "Whatever people say about my weight they are all wrong."
The 21-year-old continued in an interview with People magazine:
"Hollywood is all about the way you look, and I don't think that's the healthy thing for anyone. But, if you're strong and comfortable with yourself, then you're going to be fine."
Part of the reason why questions about her health came up at the premiere? Knightley's slight figure was on display in a low-cut, backless bronze Gucci dress (pictured).
Nevertheless, she reiteratied that there's nothing to worry about.
"I've got a lot of experience with anorexia â€" my grandmother and great-grandmother suffered from it, and I had a lot of friends at school who suffered from it," Knightley said. "I know it's not something to be taken lightly and I don't."
Also spotted at the festivities were Depp - decked out in a fedora and sunglasses. He greeted fans and signed autographs for more than an hour.
Orlando Bloom, meanwhile, was also present and reports state he couldn't help himself, peeking down the front of Knightley's gown, which opened to her belly button.
"I haven't flashed anyone yet," she joked.
This just in, folks: the sky is blue, the Pope is Catholic and Angelina Jolie possesses the world's most kissable lips.
The latter was voted upon in a poll conducted by beverage manufactuer, Cafe Kiss, as England prepared to National Kissing Day on Thursday.
If any of the women involved in the survey would like our staff to comment on the results, we're puckered up and ready to stick our
nose tongue into such business.
