LONDON, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Keira Knightley says that while she doesn't plan have plastic surgery, she's not against other women who choose to do so.

"There's a huge pressure on women to look good, and I'm not just talking about actresses but women in general," she told Britain's the Daily Mail.

She said there's a "drawback" to not being able to move your face with some plastic surgery procedures.

"But I don't think I would ever condemn any woman for doing something that made her feel better about herself. If suddenly she's feeling like she's the most disgusting thing in the world and that's what she wants to do and that makes her happier, then I think she should be free to do what makes her feel better in her own body, her own skin and own mind," the Imitation Game actress said.

"Surgery for myself? I hope I don't. I don't plan to. But who knows?" she added.

This isn't the first time Knightley has addressed women's body issues. She's been accused of having anorexia, something she denied in 2006.

"They said to me, 'How does it feel to be called anorexic?' and I had no idea that I was. I can safely say that I'm not," she said at the time, adding that, "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."

Knightley next appears in WWII thriller The Imitation Game, which hits U.S. theaters Nov. 21.
