There are many famous types who think that throwing a picture of themselves through eighteen hundred layers of Photoshop makes themselves look 1000x better (see: every time Lindsay Lohan busts out the liquefy tool), but Kate Winslet isn’t one of them. Way way back in 2003, Kate called out GQ for jacking her body so much she looked like that time you ripped off Skipper’s head and put it on Barbie’s body. Clearly, Kate still has a page in her burn book dedicated to Adobe and their bottom bitch Photoshop.
During the ELLE Women in Hollywood event that was held earlier this week, Kate told E! News that she made L’Oreal promise they wouldn’t airbrush the Kate out of her face before she signed her contract (Kate is currently cashing checks for Lancôme, which is owned by L’Oreal) because Kate Winslet wants to look like Kate Winslet when she’s hawking $103 night cream. She also side-eyed magazines who are still trying to pass off the whole wrinkle-free 50-year-old thing.
“I can only ever speak for myself and I can only ever do things that are important to me and it’s a hope that other people might follow suit but it does feel important to me because I do think we have a responsibility to the younger generation of women.”
“I think they do look to magazines, I think they do look to women who have been successful in their chosen careers and they want people to look up to, and I would always want to be telling the truth about who I am to that generation because they’ve got to have strong leaders. We’re all responsible for raising strong young women, so these are things that are important to me.”
Beyonce/Kim Kardashian/Madonna/(insert the name of any famous person who sleeps with a stuffed plushie of the Photoshop spot healing brush tool) just forwarded Kate’s quote to their photo perfection team with the message: “Clear some space on the server. I want to be ready for when all those magazines decide to dump their copies of Photoshop and we can buy them in bulk.”
Here’s more of Kate and her SANS PHOTOSHOPPE face in a gold and white dress (I deserve all the eye rolls I got for that one) at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event last week.
