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!



Just.  Jesus fuck, stop it, she’s gorgeous, I’ve thought she was gorgeous since Cold Case.  It breaks my heart that the majority of mainstream media, of society, are trying to tell her, and so many other beautiful, amazingly talented women that they’re not good enough.  It makes me sick to my stomach.  I hate it.  I hate it I hate it I hate it.  *beats fists of frustrated anger*

What really annoys me about this is actually the fact that they’ve airbrushed out all her (no doubt super-hard-earned) muscle tone. This also goes to criticism about her not being ‘skinny’ enough to play Katniss, as one of my favourite criticisms fo that school of thought argued that for Katniss to be a hunter, she actually has to have a stronger build, with thighs and glutes for running and climbing, core strength for pulling a bow (as evidenced by the fact that she has a tiny waist irl) and so on. Also that not all bodies react the same way to extreme hunger, and that nobody’s criticizing Gale for being perfectly Hollywood gym-toned in an environment where he probably couldn’t be getting enough calories to build that kind of physique.
So yeah, tldr: the un-shopped version of Jennifer Lawrence here has wonderfully toned arms and abs and glutes, and she looks amazing, and the shopped version makes her look the sickly kind of skinny that comes from doing no exercise and starving yourself. Which is valid if that’s your own personal life choice, but it’s obviously not Jennifer Lawrence’s, as she’s mentioned in multiple interviews, and making her look like that is just disrespectful.

Just going to reblog this (again I think) to point out that the (relatively) un-airbrushed image was the one used in GQ.

Just a reminder. 





Also wanting to point out that I think many of the people saying that she wasn’t skinny enough to play Katniss are referring to the fact that Katniss was starving and fairly emaciated in a good portion of the series, NOT criticizing JLaw’s body on the grander scheme.

Though I will put as a disclaimer that the standards of Hollywood really do make me sick. This one in particular I just think has gotten a lot of press when there are other, more alarming cases.
