Lorde has spoken out against photoshop, explaining "flaws are OK". These other celebrities agree and also opt for au naturel when it comes to their photo shoots.
One of the reasons that we love Lorde so much is that she defies the usual standards of celebrity. The 17 year old has previously posted photos of herself on her Instagram account with a caption explaining she is wearing acne cream in the pic.
'Royals' singer Lorde has spoken out against photoshopping
Recently the ‘Royals’ singer shared two photographs of herself from Lollapalooza music festival in Santiago, Chile. One photograph of her had been photoshopped to smooth over her skin, while the other was natural. Lorde commented on the photos, ‘i find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)’.
Lorde is the latest celeb to say no to photoshop, these other stars also opt to go au naturel when it comes to digital touch ups.
Not only is singer Jessica Simpson involved with Operation Smile, a campaign which aims at motivating youths to embrace inner beauty rather than superficial looks, she also practices what she preaches. Simpson has turned down photoshopping of her own images, refusing to let magazine Marie Claire touch up her images when she shot a feature with them in 2010. "I don’t have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business," she told the magazine. Bravo, Jessica.
Keira Knightley was shocked to see her digital boob job on the King Arthur posters. Photo editors had added in two rather large additions to Keira’s slender figure, which the actress wasn’t best pleased about. For her next movie Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End she instructed the production company that she did not want to be photoshopped for the promotional posters.
Queen Bey was not happy when she saw the photoshopped images for her H&M campaign. She’d wanted only “natural photos” to be used for the shots, several of which feature her in a bikini. If we had a body like Beyonces, we wouldn’t want/need to be photoshopped either!
We have to admit, it was pretty funny when the GQ pics of Kate Winslet started doing the rounds in 2003. Kate looked slimmer than we’d ever seen her, in fact, she was slimmer than anyone had ever seen her aside from the photo editors. The problem was, in the background was a mirror with her reflection that the editors had failed to spot and left untouched. Kate didn’t deny the photoshopping, instead she was very vocal about the touches that the mag had made, “The retouching is excessive”, she admitted, adding, “I don’t desire to look like that...I actually have a Polaroid that the photographer gave me on the day of the shoot...I can tell you they’ve reduced the size of my legs by about a third. For my money it looks pretty good the way it was taken.”
We love Brad Pitt, wrinkles and all
Brad Pitt is like a fine wine, the older he gets, the better he becomes. Brad knows this and told W magazine on a recent shoot not to edit out his wrinkles. We actually prefer Brad now that he’s a silver fox, so he definitely did the right thing.
