Hollywood star called out the attention of Cosmopolitan Philippines for editing her photo to make her look slimmer.
Hollywood star Lili Reinhart, who is one of the casts of ‘Riverdale’, called out the attention of a magazine in the Philippines for photoshopping her body to look slimmer.
The American actress shared her thoughts about it on her Instagram account.
In her series of IG posts, Lili pointed out that there has been movements for women’s rights but it need to be improved, based on the article published in Preen.
She cited herself as an example of the fact that that fighting for right women around the globe must be intensified in its truest sense.
The Hollywood star shared screenshot photos of her shoot for Cosmopolitan and the one which the Philippine magazine photoshopped to make her slimmer and her waistline has a noticeable change from the original photo.
Lili also posted photos of her co-star Camila Mendes from the same photo shoot, before and after photoshop editing was done also on her waistline.
The actress wanted to iterate that she and Camila worked hard to feel confident and comfortable in the bodies that they have. Doing that is a battle, according to Lili, and seeing photos like what she cited are great obstacles for them.
Her last post was an encouragement for her fellow celebrities not to conform in the art of photoshopping their body just to look slimmer in photos or any part of the face, based on the article.
For the Hollywood star, it will just further fuel an unrealistic body image.
Previously, Camila Mendes also shared on her IG account that she is already done with dieting as her way to embrace being healthy rather than being skinny.
When did being thin become more important than being healthy? I recently went to a naturopath for the first time in my life. I told her about my anxiety around food and my obsession with dieting. She phrased a pivotal question in such a way that struck a chord with me: what other things could you be thinking about if you didn’t spend all your time thinking about your diet? I suddenly remembered all the activities I love that used to occupy my time. At some point in my life, I allowed my obsession with being thin to consume me, and I refused to make room in my mind for any other concerns. Somehow I had stripped myself of all the pastimes that brought me joy, and all that was left of me was my anxiety around food. My passion for education, cinema, music, etc. — all the interests that used to occupy my mind — had been eaten away by my desire to be thin, and it made me miserable. I’m done believing in the idea that there’s a thinner, happier version of me on the other side of all the tireless effort. Your body type is subject to genetics, and while eating nutrient-dense foods and exercising regularly will make you healthier, it will not necessarily make you thinner, and the current system fails to make that distinction. I’m sick of the toxic narrative that the media consistently feeds us: that being thin is the ideal body type. A healthy body is the ideal body type, and that will look different for every person. I’m #donewithdieting – join me in this movement and share your story!
