‘That’s not even me:’ Ashley Benson on celebrity photoshopping

Ashley Benson has spoken out against the norm of photoshopping celebrities. 

The Pretty Little Liars star told StyleCaster how she took issue with how photoshopped some of the posters and promo materials for the cult teen show were.

'PLL had put up this poster and it was from our first season and it was completely crazy,' she told StyleCaster

'Nobody looked like themselves.'

'They’ll photoshop out a mole, make your boobs bigger or your waist four sizes smaller, and you’re like, 'That’s not even me.'

'You never know how it’s going to turn out because you have no control and you’re not editing the photos, but it sucks when you’re like, 'Wow. That’s a completely different person.'"

She also told the publication how she hopes to inform her fans and followers whenever there is photoshop trickery afoot. 

'I always make sure to tell people, with any sh*t that I do or anyone else does, that unless it’s announced that it’s not photoshopped, it’s photoshopped,' she told the mag.

'And don’t get down on yourself for not looking a certain way because it takes a lot of hair and makeup, a ton of good lighting, and after the shoot, it’s all this editing.'

Kudos to Ashley for reminding us that when it comes to celebrity photo shoots, things probably aren't exactly as they seem.
