In her ongoing fight for body positivity, actress Jameela Jamil has shared a photo that sees her evidently slimmed down, airbrushed, and whitened.
The Good Place star spotted a photo of herself being circulated that she had almost failed to recognize as herself. In it, her skin was apparently lightened, with her arm being downsized and “titty stretch marks” being smoothed out.
The image was seemingly taken—and possibly further edited—from a 2011 spread by Dutch men’s magazine CLINT, according to The Blast.
Resharing the photo, Jamil wrote, “I was just doing a new spoof motivation sultry pic and was struck by how edited this picture of me is. It made me so mentally unwell trying to live up to this image in person. Airbrushing is the DEVIL.”
Jamil has constantly been vocal about the tendency of the media, beauty and fashion industries to airbrush models in advertising. She fears that the overdependency on Photoshop could warp perceptions about how men and women should look.
