Is It Her?

Below is an example of why I obsess about my weight. So frustrating that Hollywood still tries to get away with crap like this.

MIRAMAX ADMITS QUEEN LATIFAH’S BODY WAS ALTERED IN AD FOR “CHICAGO” TO SHOW A SVELTE IMAGE
Wednesday, April 2, 2003
Miramax, the distributor for the Oscar-winning “Chicago,” admitted to Inside Edition Queen Latifah’s body was altered in a print ad for the film, blaming it on a “ratio mistake.”
Inside Edition reported Wednesday that when it contacted Miramax after noticing a lithe Latifah in an ad, the company admitted it altered her body, saying it was an error.
A day after Inside Edition’s inquiry, Miramax changed the “Chicago” ads, and they now show Latifah in all her plus-sized glory.
Ad Week’s national editor Jack Feuer told Inside Edition he wasn’t surprised by the alteration. “It happens all the time, especially in movie ads.”
Feuer added, “I assume a ratio mistake is what we in journalism call spin.”

  1. People seem to “buy into” the fantasy of what they long to be. Perhaps, we should simply be happy with what we ARE, instead of what “they” tell us to be!
