25 Controversial Photoshopped Celebs

From Jessica Alba to Jessica Simpson, Artificial Thin is In

— January 28, 2009 — Pop Culture
Famous faces like Jessica Alba and Jessica Simpson know that when it comes to digitally enhancing your photos with programs like Photoshop, you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

Jessica Alba went under the digital knife for her Campari calendar shoot just months after giving birth; in one of the articles below, we can compare the ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots side by side. And after seeing months of Photoshopped images of Jessica Simpson, newspapers and tabloids were shocked to see the real Simpson perform live over the weekend.

For all the good that Photoshop can do--covering up post-baby bloat, erasing a pimple or stray case of blotchy skin--it sure causes a lot of trouble. Just as the media has zeroed in on Jessica Simpson and Jessica Alba for their respective ‘weight gain,’ so too have they railed on Sarah Palin, Brad Pitt and Madonna for releasing photos and magazine covers sans Photoshop.

Is Photoshopping worth the headache? See for yourself by clicking through the controversial articles in the slideshow below. Just for fun, we’ve also included three celebrities besides Jessica Simpson and Jessica Alba who have come under fire in recent months for being either too thin (Megan Fox) or too fat (Eva Longoria and Britney Spears).
