15 Celebrity Photoshop Failures Of All Time That Are Downright Hilarious
Celebrities are really a big reason why most people keep craving for unrealistic body standards. This not only puts enormous pressure on the average Joes and Janes, but has also increased a sense of insecurity about one’s looks amongst them. It is perhaps the sole reason why there is an exponential increase in the number of people opting for plastic surgeries. And for those who are not in a position to afford them, well, photo editing seems like a more viable option.
And even those who go through some of the most expensive surgeries known to mankind, ultimately end up using photoshop to polish their photographs – just to get that perfect figure and be visually more appealing. Over time, it seems even celebs are now finding themselves trapped in the game they once owned. They are using the photo editing features more and more, and it seems that they are even more insecure than an average Joe and Jane!
They may have been masters of this game at some point in time, they are now failing to be more appealing, especially with the use of photoshop. We have compiled a list of fifteen instances when these celebs faced the most epic photoshop fails that are totally hilarious. Let’s check out the article now!
While this leading actress may have removed this photo from her IG handle, the post was downright hilarious. Lohan clearly forgot to fix the details while she was busy editing her photo. As we can see in this picture, the door behind the actress looks curved, which clearly suggests that she added some curves to her body. The distortions were so clear that fans didn’t take much time in spotting this hilarious error – making Lohan take down her post shortly!
While we all agree that yoga is definitely a great way to keep one’s mind and body in perfect shape. However, we didn’t know that Lady Gaga has made her mind so strong with ancient yoga practices that she can now even make a tiled floor wavy, and even bend the mirror from the distance! She’s really cool, we must say!
The Kardashian-Jenner family is busy doing a lot of photoshoots one after the other, all for different brands. However, this ad didn’t exactly turn out as they wish it would. In this ad for leading underwear brand Calvin Klein, the photo looks normal at first instance, but if you look closely, Kourtney’s arms are made to look way thinner than it is possible. Even though Calvin Klein later came up with a clarification that it was due to lighting and use of poor-quality social media images, netizens were clearly left amused as they didn’t buy the explanation at all.
In this Hollywood Issue of Vanity Fair’s 2018 edition, Oprah Winfrey appeared alongside some of the other A-listers of the industry. The issue featured names such as Tom Hanks, Reese Witherspoon, and Oprah Winfrey herself, apart from others. However, what these three shared in common was the fact that the photos of these three were edited to quite a degree.
For instance, in one of the photos, Witherspoon seems to have three legs instead of two! And to make it more hilarious for the netizens, the magazine blamed it on ‘poor lighting’. However, the magazine didn’t even give an explanation for this photo where we can clearly see Oprah having three hands in the picture!
Emma Watson was all over the news when Burberry signed her to be the face of their brand. And even though it was none other than Mario Testino, a legendary photographer, at the helm for this photoshoot involving summer campaign for Burberry, the photos weren’t exactly what he would have expected. For instance, in this photo, we can see Watson’s leg vanish into thin air! Clearly, the person editing this photograph wasn’t experienced at all.
Jordyn Woods And Kylie Jenner
Everything seems to be normal in this 2017 photograph of Jordyn Woods and Kylie Jenner where they can be seen posing together. And while there doesn’t seem to be any significant change in appearance that may make it feel like it’s edited, a closer look clearly proves something else. If you notice the floor and the carpet lines, the latter clearly looks way and distorted, which suggests that the photograph was edited.
When this leading American musician posted a photo of himself with his dear buddy Ricky Van Veen, who was also the co-founder of Collegehumor, it definitely left the netizens rolling on the floor laughing! The photo actually was so much edited that it looked more like a realistic 3D animation from a video game than a selfie! A lot of airbrushing was done to make the skin look smoother than it is. Well, and if we compare a previous photo taken back in 2011 with this picture, we can conclude that he may be a good singer, but he definitely lacks photoshop skills!
Prince William also makes it to this list, thanks to his photo featuring the 2010 edition of the Hello magazine. However, not even the handsome features of Prince were perfect enough for this magazine.
Even a kid can notice that the looks have been drastically altered. Apparently, his receding hairline didn’t make for a good view, so the magazine decided to fill it in. Add to that the pose in which Prince William stood for this shot, which made the receding hairline all the more obvious. However, the move by magazine backfired on them and made the alteration quite obvious to anyone.
And it wasn’t just the receding hairline the photo editors ‘fixed’ in this photograph. They also gave Prince William darker hair, as his blondish hair didn’t quite look good on him.
While most of the magazines edit various body parts of celebs posing for their cover pages, Self magazine it to the very next level. In this September 2009 edition of their magazine they left no (stones unturned) filters unused with their photoshop of the popular singer Kelly Clarkson. The weird part is, the singer has on multiple occasions stood for body positivity and believes in being natural, but clearly, the magazine doesn’t agree with her views. They perfectly thought it was okay to not just photoshop her photo, but also make her lose pounds in the poster and make her look like she probably never has!
While it may seem like a harmless and normal ad for Pretty Little Liars¸ it isn’t. This ad that was shot for the seventh and overall final season of the show in 2016 has one epic photoshop mistake that left the netizens laughing. If you take a look at the photo carefully, you’ll notice that the left leg of Sasha Pieterse (the actress who played Alison DiLaurentis) is clearly missing in the photograph!
Selena Gomez’s makeup artist posted a selfie of this popular singer. The photograph seems quite normal at first, but if one looks at the details, you’d realize that the wall behind Selena in the background is curved! That makes it quite obvious that photoshop was used in the picture. But what made the whole scenario more hilarious is the fact that the shoulder seems to be edited, which made the fans wonder why she would photoshop her shoulder!
It’s clearly not just women who have had an edited photographs to make it seem like they always have perfect bodies, male celebs have also made use of photoshops to appear more good-looking. In this June 2007 cover of Men’s Fitness, the magazine editors used so much editing that this famous tennis star couldn’t recognize his arms in the photo! The tennis player shared in his personal blog that the arms were made really large by editing, which made it look starkly different from how his arms actually are!
Lena Dunham was at the center of online memes this time when her photoshoot with Vogue turned out to be an epic fail. In this photo, she can be seen wearing fancy dress in a beautiful setting with lots of sceneries all around. And while Lena Dunham was more than willing to explain that the photo wasn’t meant to showcase reality or that it was poor lighting effect, a missing arm due to editing blunder left the netizens laughing.
If you were of the opinion that only Vogue could make such a mix-up, you are entirely wrong! This time, it is none other than Maxim. Maxim suffered an epic photoshop fail when they shared Priyanka Chopra’s poster for their 2016 issue. The magazine worked so hard on editing her armpit to look it smooth that they made it entirely non-existent! It seemed like her arm was just directly coming out from her torso.
The photo immediately went viral and netizens left no chance to laugh at this hilarious photoshop fail. However, the Quantico star and former Miss World took the entire incident sportingly and shared the unedited version of the same photo. Needless to say, the original photo was starkly different from the photoshopped one.
In this November 2011 issue of Vogue, Adam Levine posed alongside his ex-girlfriend, Anne Vyalitsyna, and even a cursory glance at the photo makes it obvious that there is something amiss with the photograph. Upon closer look, netizens noticed that so much photoshop was used on the photograph that the editors took out a part of Levine’s torso from the picture! Well, this is deservedly on the first spot on this list.
