Lena Dunham criticizes Spanish magazine for photoshopping her

Girls star Lena Dunham has taken to Instagram to criticize Tentaciones (Temptations), a monthly magazine included with Spanish newspaper El Pais, for using “more than the average photoshop” on a picture of her. The magazine had used an old photo by Ruven Afanador, who had styled the popular actress/writer after iconic model Twiggy, and which was first published in Entertainment Weekly in 2012. Dunham told her 2.4 million followers that while she was “genuinely honored” to be on their cover, they had airbrushed the cover, making her body not look the way it has “ever looked like or will ever look like,” writing: “if you’re into what I do, why not be honest with your readers?”

Lena Dunham has often spoken out for body positivity and against the use of excessive photoshopping. Her Instagram post has been liked more than 37 thousand times since she posted it on her account Monday night.
