Lena brands Jezebel’s publishing of un-retouched Vogue photos as “gross”


Lena Dunham is not happy and it’s no wonder!

After she landed February’s Vogue cover – something that was a dream of hers – website Jezebel paid $10,000 for the un-retouched images of Lena. Nice, eh?

In a recent interview, Lena brands Jezebel‘s purchasing of the images as “gross”, saying: “They made such a monumental error in their approach to feminism.”

Jezebel themselves were surely disappointed to find that Lena’s Vogue photos were not even altered that much, but stuck to their guns anyway admitting that while the photos weren’t that photoshopped, that Vogue is still “not interested in reality”. Worst apology ever?

Lena also addressed this lack of apology or back-tracking in her interview, noting: “Instead of going like, ‘Hey, we kinda f***ed up, these pictures aren’t that retouched Lena, enjoy the Vogue spread that you’ve been excited about since you were eight years old,’ they were like, ‘She’s not retouched, but she could’ve been.’”
