Rosamund Pike has spoken out against airbrushing women’s figures, revealing she was given an “impressive chest” for a movie poster.
The actress was shocked when she realised her cleavage had been altered in an advert for the 2011 film Johnny English Reborn, in which she played behavioural psychologist and Johnny’s love interest Kate Sumner.
“For the poster for Johnny English (Reborn), my breasts were augmented,” Rosamund said during an interview for The Kelly Clarkson Show. “In the poster for the character shot, I’ve got a really impressive chest. Which I don’t have.”
That isn’t the only time Rosamund noticed her appearance had been altered to promote a film. The 42-year-old star revealed her eye colour was changed to brown for the Radioactive posters last year, admitting she “still doesn’t know why” the decision was made.
Rosamund finds it disturbing that augmentation has become so commonplace in society, claiming people have forgotten what some stars really look like.
“Those are the obvious times, right? When you do notice, ‘Oh, I’ve got brown eyes,’ or, ‘I’ve got massive breasts,'” she said. “But there’s probably countless times where our image is doctored and we don’t notice it. Because I think we’re all losing our grip on what we really look like.”
