Jennifer Lawrence Offended by Photoshop

As if she wasn’t beautiful enough, Jennifer Lawrence has been left outraged (along with many of her fans) after being ‘shopped’ to drop a dress size for the cover of Flare magazine. Just like Kate Winslet, she believes that being photoshopped is offensive and she has nothing to feel ashamed about.

Lawrence has a stunning face and is in great shape, it wasn’t neccessary to ‘tweak’ her whole appearance. During an interview with Yahoo’s CEO, Marissa Mayer, Lawrence said: “Screw the people who judge you. I experienced it in school before I was famous.

“The world has this idea that if you don’t look like an airbrushed perfect model… You have to see past it. You look how you look, you have to be comfortable. What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.

She goes on to explain, “There are unrealistic expectations for women; it’s disappointing that the media keeps it alive and fuels that fire. It’s something that really bothers me – because I love to eat.”

The unneccessary alterations made to Jennifer include; stretching her neck, thinning her (already toned) arms and waist, they’ve chiseled her cheekbones, contoured her thighs, and lowered her hairline… (why!?)

With more articles about this type of thing circulating, surely the media will take note, we don’t want this and we certainly don’t need this! I would have bought the magazine WITHOUT the photoshopping!
