Chrissy Teigen: No more Photoshop!
Chrissy Teigen thinks it's "unfair" that women alter their photos so dramatically.
The 29-year-old model is a regular on social media, posting snaps on Instagram daily for her 2.1 million followers to enjoy.
Last week she uploaded a snap of her bruised thighs from "bumping" them on the kitchen drawer, and the picture also appeared to show stretch marks.
It wasn't necessarily an intentional move, but Chrissy is glad she stuck by it.
"I was actually just taking a picture of the bruises and then I saw the stretch marks in there. I have those apps, the Facetune and Photoshopping ones, and I just didn't feel like doing it anymore - and I'm never doing it again, because I think we forgot what normal people look like now," she explained to talk show host Meredith Vieira.
"I mean, people are nip-tucking [their photos]. It's gotten to the point where they're not smoothing their skin anymore, they are actually changing the shape of their body and everybody else. Nobody can compare to that when you're fixing yourself so much. It's so unfair."
Chrissy believes the phenomenon began with treatments such as Botox, but now it's easier for women to alter their appearances without going under the needle just by using technology. She admits seeing people in real life who have tweaked their photos is a shock, as they look nothing like they do in their pictures.
The star is known for her down-to-earth and honest nature. She displayed this even more when she recalled the first time she and her husband John Legend met US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.
"I hit him pretty hard in the back. It was a very... He was definitely a little thrown. I don't think people really do that to him much," the model giggled.
"I start googling, every single time, how do you address them? Is it Madam First Lady? And then that all goes out the window. I'm like, ‘What's up B.? Barack, yo.'"
