Blake Lively confesses to photoshopping her photographs, but we can't tell the difference
Blake Lively, in the interview, talks about how many times people consider those photos to be the truth but advises them not to blindly trust what they see.
Blake Lively and Gigi Hadid sat down together for Harper’s Bazaar cover star for May and during the interview, the girls spoke about the beauty standards that have been set by the society and how they are often pictures of the celebrities where they have been photoshopped.
Blake is aware that many times people consider those photos to be the truth but advises them not to blindly trust what they see. “It’s so important for young people not to compare themselves with what they see online,” she said to Gigi. "It’s our job as actors and/or models to be in shape. We have access to gyms and trainers and healthy food." Despite this, Blake confessed that most of the photos are photoshopped.
"And then on top of that, 99.9 percent of the time the images are Photoshopped. I’m guilty myself of being at a photo shoot and saying, ‘That looks terrible on me.’ And they’re like, ‘We’ll fix it.'” she said. At the same time, Gigi opened up about the times when she has been criticized by the media and people for her changing appearance. Recently, the model was called 'too skinny'.
“If I could choose, I would have my ass back and I would have the tits I had a few years ago,” she told Blake. “But, honestly, we can’t look back with regret. I loved my body then, and I love my body now." Even though there are many internet trollers out there, Gigi tends to not pay attention to what they have to say.
“Most of it is just nonsense. But it can still hurt,” she said. “Nowadays, people are quick to say, ‘I used to love Gigi’s body, and now she just gave in.'” She confessed that her sudden weight loss and body transformation stems from an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s disease, which is an inflammation of the thyroid gland and can cause weight to fluctuate.
“When I had a more athletic figure, I was proud of my body because I was an amazing volleyball player and horseback rider. But after discovering that I have Hashimoto’s, I needed to eat healthily and work out,” she shared with Blake. “It was weird as a teenager, dealing with this when all of my friends could eat McDonald’s and it wouldn’t affect them.” But Gigi and Blake have learned to accept their body for what it is and want people to do the same.
