Celebs Who Got Busted Photoshopping Their Social Media Pics

Via Instagram/@rondarousey.

Ultimate Fighter Ronda Rousey is the latest celeb to get busted using Photoshop on her social media pictures. In this case, Rousey swears that the photo,which was taken during an appearance on the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon, had been edited without her consent.  In the picture you can see that her famously-buff arms have been noticeably slimmed down.

Team Fallon denied that anybody on their end had done the deed, so it looks like someone from Rousey's management team was responsible for the digital lipo. Rousey followed up by apologizing for the gaff on her Instagram, stating "I know it was done with severely misplaced positive intentions - but this goes against everything I believe and I am extremely proud of every inch of my body."

WAIT. Lindsay Lohan did something dishonest?! I simply can't believe it!

All pearl-clutching aside, let's all take a moment to remember that just about EVERY celebrity photo that you see in magazines and on websites has been digitally retouched to make stars look better than they do in real life. It's true!  Even those "candid" paparazzi shots sometimes get a little "magic wand" action. Even the "beautiful people" need a little digital help sometimes. 

Didn't have time for an eyebrow wax?  Photoshop it.  Got a pimple?  Photoshop it. Put on ten pounds while vacationing in Cabo?  Definitely Photoshop it! If it were only that easy for the rest of us, eh ladies?

What happens when stars do their own editing on their so-called "personal" social media accounts instead of letting the pros handle it? Well, sometimes they mess up... and sometimes they get busted messing up, and when they do... it's hilarious!

Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr was criticized after she Instagrammed a picture of herself and two other Victoria's Secret models at a past Angel fashion show.  Kerr claimed that she didn't know the image had been altered when she uploaded it (A LIKELY STORY, am I right?) and denied editing any of her other Instagram pics.  The model then deleted the image in question and replaced with the original, non-Photoshopped picture along with an apology note.

Jeez, if someone as thin and beautiful as Miranda Kerr "needs" Photoshop help, the rest of us schlubs should just throw on a potato sack and call it a day.

In related news, remember when the internet had a grand old time Photoshopping Ariana Grande's LOL reaction face after she got hit in the face with a Victoria's Secret angel wing? We do.

Oh Kim, Kim, Kim. Few celebs have been busted Photoshopping more than darling Kim. Anyone who is paying attention to the background in a photo can find the tell-tale signs that a picture has been 'shopped. Take a look at Kim's picture and look closely at the tile floor. Most tile patterns don't have a curve to them, do they?

That's how you can tell that someone used a Photoshop tool to push in Kim's tummy.  You can't push one part of an image in without it affecting another part of the image.

Kim vehemently denied that she had altered her "candid" shot, but the proof is in the pixels.

Kris Jenner posted this image of herself and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, and people couldn't help but notice that they both seemed a bit... smoother... than usual.

Personally, I prefer Ramsay looking like an irate Shar Pei, but I guess Kris didn't agree.

Beyonce

This just in! Even Queen Bey isn't perfect. 

This is just one example of the many times the gorgeous Beyonce has tried to fool us into thinking she's even MORE gorgeous. It's almost always her thighs that get the Photoshop treatment, and this photo of the singer descending the stairs of her yacht is no exception. Those warped stairs tell the real story here.

Speaking of Bey, remember when she got turned into an hilarious web meme after her Super Bowl performance? Sure you do; who could ever forget Unflattering Beyonce?

Tara Reid

Via The Daily Mail.

Poor Tara Reid can't catch a break. First, she had a terribly botched tummy tuck back in the 90s that left her looking a bit, erm... lumpy?  Not hot.  Then she tried to rekindle her career with this sexy photoshoot in 2015, only to have everyone call out the fact that her midsection was undeniably 'shopped. Cue the *SAD TROMBONE* 

Remember, everyone: You're perfect just the way you are! And if not... there's always Photoshop! (Just don't get caught.)
