Objects in mirror are larger than they appear
Yet another case of Hollywood Photoshopping gone horribly awry... This makes me so angry on so many levels. As if we could ever measure up to the likes of Kate Winslet anyway -- but would it be so wrong for the readers of British GQ to be allowed to admire her as-is? It's one thing to touch up forehead shine and misaligned chins. It's quite another to lop 30 lbs. off a woman. And note to whoever edited the photos: If you're going to alter/stretch the main image, make sure you get the one in the mirror behind her as well.
Kate Winslet got digitally altered to look skinny — and there’s a lot of finger pointing going on over who’s responsible.Article from MSNBC.com's Scoop. Photos from discoverkate.com.
Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...
That's so sad ... but funny. I wish I'd had a chance to see the magazine shoot that Jamie Lee Curtis did. She had photos done of her without makeup (and not touched up), so people could see what stars look like without all the trimmings. What a gal!¤ ¤ credit: tj | 01.13.03 at 07:49 AM | link--this ¤ ¤
Here is a link to an article about that layout with pictures. I am very fond of her for doing that layout.¤ ¤ credit: sphinx | 01.13.03 at 11:32 AM | link--this ¤ ¤

I think it's lame that magazines do that. I remember a few years ago on Oprah, that a magazine did the same thing to Cindy Crawford...slimming her thighs by photoshopping them.¤ ¤ credit: elaine | 01.13.03 at 12:39 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
Jeez, Kate looks terrible.
She looks MUCH better in the mirror. The human body is a perfect work of art AS IS. Don't mess with perfection.(are you reading this, Jackson?)¤ ¤ credit: Chris | 01.13.03 at 01:28 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
how did they think they could get away with THAT much retouching...obviously if you care enough to read about Kate you have seen her movies...and since in every movie she's in you see her naked. Nuff said...it didn't even look like her!¤ ¤ credit: tenika | 01.13.03 at 02:43 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
Unbelievable! I guess they forgot about the mirror, just like Robyn said! What a bunch of idiots!! :op¤ ¤ credit: Maria | 01.13.03 at 03:24 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
I saw this on the news last night and like you I was disgusted! I also wonder why they only did a woman seems kinda funny. There are plenty of famous over weight men they could have targeted .... or would that be pushing the double standard envelope??? (shrugs)¤ ¤ credit: meredith | 01.13.03 at 07:20 PM | link--this ¤ ¤
