Rosamund Pike is opening up about having pictures of herself edited without her approval! As Entertainment Tonight shares, Pike appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Wednesday, where she talked about some of the bizarre ways she's seen the industry alter her image— and the negative impact of Photoshopping.
Pike says she's had her chest and eyes adjusted in posters
Pike told Clarkson that over the years, her image has been edited in various ways to market the films she's in— a decision that's been made without her consent! "For the poster for Johnny English [Reborn], my breasts were augmented," the actress said of the 2011 comedy. "In the poster for the character shot, I've got a really impressive chest. Which I don't have."
As the Daily Mail mentions, Pike actually had the studio take down the Johnny English poster since she was uncomfortable with the edit. She also commented on the change made to her appearance in the poster for Radioactive, her 2019 biopic about chemist Marie Curie! "For Radioactive, strangely, they made my eyes brown," she shared. "I still don't quite know why."
Pike shares how altered photos can affect self-image
Pike then went on to explain why she feels altering the body through Photoshop can be dangerous. "Those are the obvious times, right?" the I Care A Lot star said, referring to the unwanted image augmentations that she's received. "When you do notice, 'Oh, I've got brown eyes,' or, 'I've got massive breasts.'"
However, the actress points out that not all Photoshopped edits can be as obvious, which can create a distorted perception of self-image. "But there's probably countless times where our image is doctored and we don't notice it," Pike continued. "Because I think we're all losing our grip on what we really look like."
Clarkson has also spoken out about her own struggles with body image. Last year, the singer and talk show host revealed that early on in her career, she was body shamed by being shown photos of naked women whose figures she was supposed to emulate.
