When millions of little girls across the world flip through their mommy’s magazines to catch a glimpse of their favorite celebrities, they’re often dumbfounded by how perfect they look. This will of course lead to lives of eating disorders, rampant self-esteem issues and the ultimate realization that they will just never measure up — all caused by a glorious thing we like to call airbrushing.

Airbrushing, or photo retouching, is an essential part of this industry. I don’t think any female celebs are okay with their image running au naturel. Everyone needs to feel pretty, and technology has made this a reality. Now, let me just say that I’m not judging anyone. If I was being photographed for something that would reach a greater audience than my immediate Facebook network, I would be a f*cking nightmare. First of all, I wouldn’t eat for months (thus sending the french fry industry into immediate peril), and I would hire the most expensive retoucher out of pocket to guarantee that I looked like a prince.

Regardless, many people take issue with airbrushing since it perpetuates myths that everyone famous is perfect. And also, sometimes it just looks completely ridiculous. That said, click through the gallery above for some of the most unrecognizable airbrushing jobs in Hollywood history. Let us know if there is anyone we missed!
