Seeing some of our favorite celebs, like Melissa McCarthy, badly Photoshopped isn’t anything new but it’s still kind of offensive just the same. Â The most insulting part of it, in my opinion, isn’t even that it’s basically like saying “you’re too fat/thin/pale/tan/short so we need to fix you.” Â No, the worst part for me is that it insults the intelligence of fans and moviegoers. Â I mean, HELLOOOO, we know what our favorite actors and actresses really look like! Â Who do these movie studio graphic artists think they’re fooling? Â Jeez.
For example, here is how Melissa looks to the regular, unsuspecting eye when she shows up to a red carpet event:
Okay. Normal, right? Â Pretty eyes, adorable dimples, etc. Â Now look at how she appears on the U.K. poster forÂ The Heat, her new movie with Sandra Bullock:
Ummm…. ????????? Â What’s wrong with her face? Â It looks like they not only completely altered it but they slapped a layer of Clorox bleach on it for good measure. Â And why are her eyes brown? Â I haven’t seen the movie, of course, so maybe her character wears brown contacts or something. Â Doubtful, though. Â So why would you screw with those lovely baby blues and those dimples? Â Fortunately for them, this doesn’t have any effect on whether I want to see this movie or not because I love Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.
Unfortunately this isn’t the first time Melissa McCarthy has been a victim of Photoshop. Â This poster forÂ Bridesmaids is just a tad touched up:
We love her the way she is. Â She loves the way she is. Â ENOUGH WITH THE PHOTOSHOP STUFF, okay? Â She’s not afraid to stand up for what she believes in, Â so I would lay off the ‘Shop. Â Unless you want to re-touch photos of me where my head is on Halle Berry’s body (pregnant or not, really) or go back to Photoshop 101, just stop it already.
