Let’s just be honest – sometimes, looking at photographs of celebrities can be discouraging because they appear to be pretty much perfect. We stare at photos of celebrities with perfectly glimmering hair, perfectly toned bodies, and gorgeous, flawless skin and it can seem completely unattainable. “I’ll never look like that!” we exclaim, staring at the magazine covers. Well, here’s a reality check for those who didn’t know – they don’t even look like that.
Sure, it can seem obvious that celebrities are completely made up in certain photoshoots where they’re sporting a more dramatic make-up look or complicated outfit. For those photos that are a bit more natural looking, on the other hand, it can be tough to spot what’s natural and what’s just really, really good photoshop.
Luckily, a lot of celebrities lately are speaking out about not wanting to participate in that unrealistic culture of too-perfect. They want to be honest and upfront about their fans. Yes, their image is often altered to get the best photospread. That’s just the entertainment business. However, celebrities are beginning to take the initiative and share their own unphotoshopped photos. Images that formerly never saw the light of day are surfacing for the public to see and helping us see just what technology can do vs. what Mother Nature has done.
Here are 10 photos of celebrities without photoshop.
10 Bethenny Frankel
9 Kim Kardashian
8 Taylor Swift
7 Eva Longoria
6 Britney Spears
5 Kelly Clarkson
4 Jennifer Aniston
3 Katy Perry
2 Piper Perabo
1 Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett is most certainly not a shy, shrinking English rose; throughout her career she’s been outspoken about many issues. For one of their issues, the U.K. magazine Intelligent Life decided to unleash Blanchett in her full glory – no photoshop added – on their cover. It’s a bold statement in a world where people will critique a slight bulge in Kim Kardashian’s thighs, but all the advocates for natural, unphotoshopped images rejoiced. Blanchett’s wrinkles and slight imperfections are visible, but it just makes her beauty all the more striking. Take note, glossy magazines – you don’t need to photoshop a celebrity to within an inch of their life just to sell magazines. We bet Blanchett’s issue was flying off the shelves.
