Keira ‘too sexy’ for tele­vi­sion


Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PER­FUME ad­vert star­ring ac­tress Keira Knight­ley has been banned for be­ing ‘TOO SEXY’.

The TV ad for Chanel’s Coco Made­moi­selle, which shows the 27-year-old star in a saucy jump­suit rid­ing a mo­tor­bike to a pho­to­shoot, was aired dur­ing an ad break in the movie Ice Age 2: The Melt­down.

Dur­ing the ad Keira, 27, lies on a bed flirt­ing with a pho­tog­ra­pher by giv­ing him a se­ries of smoul­der­ing looks. He then helps her out of her clothes be­fore she crawls around on all fours wear­ing just a bed sheet.

The ad ends with the snappa on top of a top­less Keira on the bed.

One viewer com­plained, say­ing it was too saucy to be shown in the mid­dle of a kids film and ASA (the Ad­ver­tis­ing Stan­dards Agency) agreed.

An ASA spokesman said: “The sex­u­ally sug­ges­tive ma­te­rial was un­suit­able for young chil­dren.

“A re­stric­tion should have been ap­plied to pre­vent the ad from be­ing broad­cast in or around chil­dren’s pro­gram­ming.”
