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.”
