Most photoshopped celebs: Imagine living in one of those Hunger Games style, dystopian-esque, worlds where people are obsessed with the image of themselves. Although, maybe it’s not so hard to imagine after all (cough, Hollywood). Unfortunately, the disease has spread like wild-fire and the masses, too, are now equally obsessed with the image in the mirror.

Although Photoshop has only been around since the 90s, the industry has long been altering celebrity images (at least since the 1930s) with a “retouching machine.” It took six entire hours for each picture. However, digital alteration was much tamer compared to the extent of today’s photoshopping: they were merely smoothing skin and removing spots and wrinkles – not changing one’s entire body shape. Thank God for Photoshop today then, because Hollywood just wouldn’t be as beautiful without it (just kidding).
An anonymous photoshopper who works in the fashion industry said that 100% of its pictures are photoshopped in some way, stating that a picture would not ever be released without some form of photoshopping. This person said that “Fankensteining,” where a different head is put on a body because the model had a funny look on her face or an arm is put on a different body because it is probably a better looking arm, is fairly common. Also common is photoshopping models to look less bony. Nevertheless, some celebrities are more prone to being photoshopped because they don’t fit Hollywood’s beauty standards (note: most of them don’t). Without further ado, here are some of the most likely candidates. Let’s take a moment and feel a bit sorry for them.
15. Kourtney Kardashian
We can’t all be that surprised to see a Kardashian has made the list. The media likes to take advantage of those forever popular, money-making “how to lose the baby weight” type articles. Seeing as Kourtney Kardashian has given birth to three children already, she has made it onto these types of covers, but always drastically thinner. Some magazines went so far as to claim they had an exclusive with her regarding her weight loss, which they did not. As E Magazine pointed out, her miracle weight loss secret was photoshop. Kardashian got extra real on Twitter regarding Ok Magazine’s screw-up, writing: “One of those weeklies got it wrong again…they didn’t have an exclusive with me. And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26…But thanks!” She threw the magazine under the bus again, saying that they had definitely photoshopped her to make her look like she had lost all of her baby weight, when she hadn’t. Look at that folks, a Kardashian has done it right this time.
