Kate Winslet claims this isn’t airbrushing at work

November 4th, 2008 // 75 Comments

Kate Winslet is featured in the latest issue of Vanity Fair and is reportedly pissed at recent comments claiming her pictorial was airbrushed. Her rep issued the following statement to People:

“Kate is furious at suggestions that her body has been airbrushed. She is in terrific shape and what you see is how she looks or she would never have agreed to pose for those shots.”

The Daily Mail brought in an airbrush artist who offered the harshest critique – because it’s true:

The face: ‘There is no real detail in her face. Any detail or wrinkles have been removed. There are no eye bags, contours and smile lines. The whites of her eyes have been cleaned up and are now a really clean, crisp white. I’d say her lips have possibly been made slightly fuller as well.’
The skin: ‘Her skin has generally been retouched all over so she has no lines or blemishes at all. Her skin is completely perfect.’
The hands and feet: ‘There are no wrinkles or lines or veins on her hands and feet and this just is not natural.’
The figure: ‘Her back and lower body have been pinched in to make her look thinner and to give her some curves. Her bottom has been rounded off so it looks nice and pert. I would be very surprised if her bottom was like that naturally. Her thigh appears to have been made slimmer so it appears more toned.’

Okay, seriously, who is looking at these pics and thinking: “Yes, that’s exactly how a woman looks.” (Not counting World of Warcraft fanatics, and everyone who beats me at Halo.) So, c’mon, Kate Winslet, cut the crap. The freaking T-Rex from Jurassic Park looked more realistic. Your ass looks like Toy Story – and I’m talking the first one. Not the shinier second one where Woody gets too cool for the other toys, and I yelled “Stop being a dick!” in a theater full of toddlers.

    I wish someone would make me wak bowlegged for a week with a stupid grin on my face… *sigh*

    Idiots. It’s not airbrushed. It’s photoshopped. :D

  3. Obama

    I would love to spread her ass apart and bury my nose and tongue in her asshole.

    this is weird, just yesterday i read another online gossip blog that said she was pissed BECAUSE they photoshopped her. she has publicly said that she loves her full figure and was angry the LAST time they photoshopped her, so i doubt she’d shed the pounds like this.

    They Photoshop everyone. It doesn’t matter how nice your ass is in “real life,” it’s still got veins or zits or blotches, etc. They airbrush the shit out of every photo they put in magazines (except for the “stars without makeup” ones). Her ass does look a little too perfect to be true, but so what? Who wants to see an unperfect ass in a photo spread? Not me, and I don’t particularly want to see Kate Winslet’s ass.

    RE “airbrush” – sorry, I meant Photoshop. They don’t airbrush anymore. The only people who still airbrush are those dudes at the state fair who do those cartoony pictures of people for $10. And people who customize vans.

    She is hot and sexy. She even uploaded her private sexy photos and videos at the fitness & celebrity dating club ^^^^^^FitnessKiss. C O M^^ ^^^^. She has a personal account there. She drives lots of guys crazy.

    I agree with 47 and 48, this is just good photography.
    Kate is sexier than hell and I am a woman saying that.
    And to Rick, who is at the most 14 years old. Not every woman who has had a kid has what you call “a Mommy body.” Well, prolly your Mommy , who you spy on when she showers.

  9. Correction – I got airbrushed at FantasyFest…

    It would’ve been kinda hard to be Photoshopped and walk down the street…

  10. Sarah Palin

    G0ds will must be done. Pray for that. Pray for our servicemen being sent to fight wars, they are being sent to do g0ds will. Pray for them as they do g0ds work.

    And most of all, pray that I am elected Vice President! Oh yea, pray that John McCain is elected President!

    botox, plastic surgery, little photoshop… all digital shots need a little touch up.
    it doesn’t even look like her… kinda bummed, but her face looks a lot tighter now.

  12. #6 Rick — you’re an ass.

  13. hyd

    is that fur for f@#* sake. what the hell is wrong with these celebs. real sexy.

  14. Was it a “shot” for HUSTLER-magazine?

  15. John McCain

    Okay so I messed up with ole Palin. Just out of interest who would have voted for me if I’d had Winslett running with me?

    Just so I can get an idea for next time…

  16. @25. Max Planck – YIKES. That wikipedia pic could use a touch up. I’m wondering if they’ve been touched DOWN.


  17. nina

    she has my ass! LOL

  18. Maria

    ……Kate Winslet is still alive?

  19. stormybroad

    ummm sexy? shes a pale pudgy plain jane u can find in most pubs in the uk……Applause to the airbrush artist he/she took at least 80lbs off

    #6, pregnancy doesn’t come close to doing that to most women. Certainly not ones who take care of themselves. But Kate’s never had a good body even before the kid. So, it’s probably true here.

  21. Nikky Raney

    uh the people at the daily mail need better hobbies.

  22. omars

    I’ve seen similar work done with skillful lighting, and the color palette used in the publishing. No “airbrushing” (more properly, photoshopping…who uses an airbrush in this century?) required.

  23. MissyJStyle

    It is a requirement in all high-end fashion magazines to have a clean, flawless picture, i.e PHOTOSHOPPED. NO ONES skin looks like that in a normal photo OR the greatest camera on Earth. ALRIGHT KATE, if it hasnt been airbrushed, we want to see the original picture! And we’ll all compare the two! I bet you there’ll be a hell of alot of difference! She looks like she has alien skin, like its painted almost. Shes been shaped, brushed, you name it. That is not her naturally. Who is she trying to kid???? Shes gained and lost weight, had kid/s, shes over 30, does she think we are the biggest f**king idiots ever?
    Come on, show us the original picture f**king liar.

  24. ya know.. i really don’t care what anyone says, airbrushed or not i would wreck that chick… i would do unimaginable things to her and i dont even need my hands..

    she is almost “too” perfect in this pic. i enjoyed her more at nuerotic impulsive Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

  25. Psyx

    Huh… I find it odd that the ‘airbrush expert’ tells us that the perfectly smooth hands and feet mean it’s been altered. Ehmm…you can’t see her hands or her feet! Her hands are almost covered by her hair, and the shoes cover the most part where the veins are. I vote – very careful lighting, makeup, posing and props.
