Keira Knightley, whose new film Misbehaviour celebrates inclusivity, feminism and beauty of all kinds, said sexual objectification of women still takes place.

Misbehaviour tells the true story of feminists who disrupted the broadcast of the Miss World contest in 1970.

Commenting on the issue of sexism that the film delves into, Knightley said: "Sexual objectification of women still exists, and often women are still valued primarily for their looks. The only industry in the world where women are paid more than men is modelling. I think there is a conversation to be had over that."
