I think the main, horrifying thing about these airbrushed pictures being distributed, is there has been a lot of media hype calling this beautiful girl fat. It’s like, the media refuses to let her be proud of her body. They’ve even changed her face shape, making her almost unrecognisable. We always rant about how airbrushed photos affect us, but imagine how they must affect the people being airbrushed. Imagine feeling super confident and good about yourself after a photo shoot, and then seeing the end result and realising you weren’t good enough for the magazine. It must be crushing.I remember, when my friend was practising photo shopping, she took a photo of my face and airbrushed it without my permission or even warning me. Personally, I found the un-airbrushed photo of myself more attractive, since it looked like me, but the airbrushed version was so disheartening. She’d changed the shape of my nose, elongated my face and taken out the scars by my eyes and the scar on my chest from my operation. She only did it as light hearted practice for her art exam, but it crushed me. She didn’t realise, and perhaps the photo-editors don’t realise, that by airbrushing out all the little imperfections on my face she made me feel like I wasn’t good enough. The little scars and freckles and the bump in my nose were all things that made me, me, and she took them away.Similarly, by changing Jennifer Lawrence’s body, they’re telling her that no matter how successful she is, no matter how talented she is, she will not be good enough because of the things about her that make her who she is. And I just find that sad. 


Couldn’t have said it better.

Bless this post!


hold on - they actually airbrushed her? seriously? are you kidding me? jennifer has a body that the majority of women would DIE for. why should she have to fit a damn mould? i swear, the media makes me sick.

This is just fucking sad. Because…God, she’s lovely—she’s got firm, strong-looking arms and thighs, a round, full face. She looks healthy. But apparently the title of The Hunger Games got taken a little too literally and she can’t be attractive unless she looks like she’s starving.

    Sorry, but she looks bad after the photoshopping. They removed the definition of her stomach, causing her to look...
