Actress Keira Knightley says she was upset when her pictures appeared in magazine articles about the "skinny celebrity" debate.

"When all that blew up, I felt terrible. It appeared that I was promoting something when I absolutely was not. I am thin because that's what I am, and I was thinner at that point because of the work I do. Nothing else," people.com quotes her as saying to a magazine.

The pictures were taken when Knightley had just finished filming "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End".

She added: "I had lost weight. We were filming in searing temperatures and shooting fight scenes in which you were wearing a wetsuit underneath a load of corsets, fighting with heavy weights in the water. Can you imagine a more advanced cardio workout than that done hour after hour?"
