    THANK YOU. That so doesn’t even look like Tina Fey. And while I’m not anti-retouching, I am pro positive body image, so it would be nice to see celebrity imperfections every once in awhile. I mean, aren’t they “just like us”?

      I know. It drives me nuts. I understand that they want an ‘idealized’ version of people on their magazines, but it confuses me that they think ‘ideal’ looks more like an anime character than a human. Apparently any quality than resembles actual skin is ugly. I actually think Tina Fey is WAY more attractive than whoever this animated character with a huge head is. Ditto on Amanda on the magazine next to her.

    Tina Fey is Greek – she has a butt and hips – very natural, if not desirable things. Why does the “I’m hiding behind a pipe” look make her look like she has a 10-yr old Thai boy’s body, and that, somehow, is more appealing?
