There has been a a great deal of controversy over the past two days in the UK about whether or not the Vanity Fair shoot of Kate Winslet has been airbrushed and photoshopped beyond recognition. Whether it is because I love Kate Winslet, or because I know how hard she was slammed for the extensive airbrushing that was done when she posed for GQ, I choose to believe that this time she means it when she said the only thing removed were some blemishes and altering some skin color to make it blend.
In her earlier spread for GQ it was revealed they basically made her several sizes thinner and she came out and apologized for that. Kate has always been on the side of women being proud of who they are and what they have and that no one should shy away from a curvier figure. Obviously as a man of extensive curves, I also find there is nothing wrong with them. To me every person should be proud of who they are and how they look and if someone doesn't like it, screw them. I think she looks great in these photos, but I will let you decide if they have been extensively altered or not. I say they have not.
