The star of “I care a lot” said that she was photoshopped on the poster for “Johnny English”.
Rosamund Pike is currently enjoying a worldwide audience with the Netflix hit “I care a lot”, in which she plays the role of a shady legal guardian who drains the bank accounts of his adult wards. The recent press gave her the opportunity to look back on her career as an Oscar nominee for “Gone Girl” and others, including a role in the 2011 action comedy “Johnny English Reborn.” Speaking in practice on the Kelly Clarkson Show, Pike took the opportunity to draw attention to a problem she had hinted at before, namely her body being changed and photoshopped for the poster of this film.
“For the poster for Johnny English [Reborn]”
Pike also said that for a more recent film, last year’s Radioactive, in which she plays Marie Curie, her eye color has changed to her bewilderment.
“For Radioactive, strangely, my eyes turned brown. I still don’t know why. Something like a brown-hazel color. “
In the video, which you can watch below, she added that she also wondered how many times her body was photoshopped without her realizing it.
“These are the obvious times, aren’t they?” When you notice “Oh, I have brown eyes” or “I have massive breasts.” But there are probably countless times when our image is a doctorate and we don’t notice it, “she said. “Because I think we’re all losing control of how we really look.”
Pike is not the only actress to call for photoshopped in promotional materials. Zendaya, another actress with a current Netflix movie, thanks to Malcolm and Marie, called for a body modification done to her in Modeliste magazine back in 2015, writing on Instagram, “If a new photo came out today and I was shocked when I found 19-year-old thighs and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self-aware, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. “
“I care a lot,” starring Pike and director Jay Blakeson, is now on Netflix. Read the IndieWire review here.
