In today’s world, social media is an important aspect of a celebrity’s life. More often than not, the biggest celebrities also have the biggest social media presence. The celebrities who aren’t as prominent but are rising stars also see a growing social media presence as the way to build their stock. However, this race to get the most followers can also lead to creating unattainable beauty standards. Photoshop is often the tool to attain this. However, people are becoming harder to fool. Celebrities are often being called out on it now. The following are celebrity photoshop fails you won’t believe.
Selena Gomez came to prominence as a kid when she starred on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place. On the show, Gomez starred as Alex Russo, a wizard in training. However, this picture suggests that her wizarding ways didn’t end with the end of the show. This is a picture that Selena’s makeup artist had posted. However, fans were quick to pick up the distortion in the doorway here. This landed the former Disney star on a list of celebrity photoshop fails.
Gwyneth Paltrow has graced cinema and television screens around the world with iconic performances. These include roles in movies such as “The Talented Mr. Ripley”, “Seven”, “Hook”, “Shakespeare In Love”, and many more. Furthermore, she’s also beloved by fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for her portrayal of Pepper Potts. However, all this makes her addition to a list of celebrity photoshop fails all the more disappointing. Also, this photoshop attempt couldn’t be less subtle. The picture gets funnier the more you look at it.
In his prime, Andy Roddick was one of the fiercest servers in the tennis world. He often broke the record for the fastest serve. Roddick has thirty-two ATP singles titles and one grand-slam. He reached the Wimbledon final in 2004, 2005, and 2009. He lost all three of those matches to Roger Federer. However, all three of the finals have gone down in Wimbledon folklore. The fact that Roddick was such a strong server might be why Men’s Fitness magazine photoshopped his arms. It could be symbolic. Or it could also be misleading.
Lindsay Lohan came to prominence when she was a kid and did a double role in “Parent Trap”. However, it’s hard to not put the star from Herbie Fully Loaded on this list of celebrity photoshop fails after this debacle. It’s bad enough to edit yourself to an unattainable body standard. However, it’s worse (and funnier) when done poorly and with minimal effort. The world to Lohan’s left is slowly distorting like it would in a sci-fi movie. The frame of the door is also wavy.
Beyonce is an icon today. Any singer and song-writer with twenty-four Grammy Awards and seventy-nine nominations are bound to reach such heights. The legendary singer also has a fair amount of acting experience. She has appeared in Pink Panther (2006), Carmen, Austin Powers, to name a few. Beyonce was also the voice of Nala in Lion King. However, she dropped the gear with this photoshop attempt. The stairs between her thigh gap look completely distorted. Or maybe the stairs became wavy because of the singer’s awe-inspiring aura. Unlikely.
Ariana Grande is one of the biggest pop stars of the modern era and has a hundred and fifty awards to her name. She has an enormous following on social media, and her list of accolades stretches around the block. As far as pop artists go, she has one of the most influential followings. Ariana Grande also has eleven Grammy nominations to her name and has won once. However, all of these achievements make this photoshop fail even bigger. Her right-hand looks unnatural and much longer than normal.
Taylor Swift is one of the most influential pop icons of this generation. She will go down in history as one of the greatest artists. Her narrative songwriting has received a lot of plaudits and media coverage. She doesn’t often post pictures on her Instagram in swimsuits. That’s also why this one got so much coverage. More eyeballs on the picture meant that they could and did catch all photoshop attempts easily. The guard-rail to the right of the woman on the extreme is completely warped.
It might not be wise to upset Gordon Ramsey. Apart from his brilliant cooking, the celebrity chef is known to have a bad temper. He showed his mad man side in cooking shows like Masterchef and Hell’s Kitchen. He is often terrifying contestants with very explicit but also very creative insults. This is also why it begs to wonder if Kris Jenner asked his permission to photoshop him in this picture. The Jenners and Kardashians are known to use the tool often. However, it’s hard to say how the celebrity chef feels about it.
John Mayer attended the Berklee College of Music but disenrolled and moved to Atlanta. He was part of a band called Lo-Fi Masters for a short while before splitting. However, Mayer kept doing gigs on his own before Aware Records picked him up. This was his beginning to superstardom. In 2003 Jon Mayer won his first Grammy. However, surely he’s joking with this photoshopped selfie with his friend, right? Their faces look smooth as butter and almost animated.
Oprah Winfrey has broken many barriers in the media industry, and people worship her as a media icon. This is why her title of “Queen of All Media” is a very appropriate one. Apart from being an actor and producer, Oprah is best known for the Oprah Winfrey Show, which became the highest-rated television show of its kind. Oprah also became the first African-American multi-billionaire and the wealthiest African-American of the twentieth century. She is also not to blame for this photoshop fail. This was a picture taken by Vanity Fair, which shows Oprah with three hands. This also explains her productivity.
Emma Watson is best known for playing the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter Films. Hermione Granger’s character is a very brilliant wizard who knows all the difficult spells at a younger age. This would explain her disappearing right leg in this shoot Watson did for Burberry in 2010. She has fought some of the most powerful wizards in the world and defeated them. You’d think making her leg disappear would be fairly easy compared to that.
Filipa Hamilton is a French-Swedish model. Since the age of seventeen, she had worked with the Ralph Lauren brand, but this photoshop controversy resulted in her falling out publicly with the company. The company used this image for publication in Japan. However, once it had surfaced, it was circulated all over the internet and ridiculed in blogs. Often enough times, you have to pay attention to a picture to see if it’s photoshopped. However, one glance at this, and you’re left staring and scratching your head.
Kim Kardashian West
No list of celebrity photoshop fails is complete without the addition of Kim Kardashian. The reality television star and her family are known to distort their pictures often. The one shown above is no exception. Almost the entire background behind her in this picture is completely distorted. The car at the back looks like some vehicle from the future. It almost looks like a motorcycle with four wheels. The ground is also wavy, making it look like Kim just stepped out of a portal.
The sport of boxing has come under heavy scrutiny as of late. It’s no coincidence that the criticism has been directly proportional to Jake and Logan Paul’s emergence in the sport. Both the brothers are prominent Youtube stars, and the fact that they’re headlining fight cards with experienced boxers on it does not look good. It also doesn’t look good when they use photoshop to make their shoulder muscles look bigger. The stripes in the background are even fading into his shoulder.
This celebrity photoshop has to be one of the funniest because of how it’s not subtle at all. It’s almost as if Amanda Holden has done it on purpose in a fit of irony. The water and dock she’s standing on looks completely distorted. It looks like the water planet from Interstellar. Maybe she was also part of the scene when Mathew McConaughey and his crew touch down on the water planet. This means she witnessed the scene where the ship gets wiped out by the waves and didn’t try to help. Not very nice.
