Has the world gone mad? This our second photoshop story in one day. ONE day.

This one’s a little different than the photoshop fail from Ann Taylor Loft that we brought you earlier today. This one is about the “Pretty Little Liars” cast and their photo shoot for the June issue of GQ. The girls look absolutely stunning in the spread that features them having (what seems like) a great time at a pool. The problem is, that these images are so clearly photoshopped. The women really do look perfect, which we know, is just not possible in real life (you know that, RIGHT?!)


Well, before you call us haters.  Troian Bellisario actually called out the spread on Twitter and Instagram. She wrote:

So by now you have seen many a shot from #GQand many people have said that we were photoshopped… OF COURSE WE WERE! that’s a very specific type of photo shoot. And looking very blown out and perfected was obviously what they were looking for. Great. Cool. As long as we acknowledge how it was achieved so we know it’s not real. Here’s some behind the scenes of my body the way it is and was on the day. I’m not mad at how these pictures turned out, the girls and I had an absolute blast. More fun than we’ve had on a photoshoot in a while, and I think you can see that in our eyes and smiles. But it’s the same everywhere. It’s the same way on the posters of our show and even in women’s magazines. This industry seems to invest more in perfection than in flaw. But flaw and individuality, to me, are what make a human being interesting, they make our stories worth telling. (Unfortunately the flaws don’t usually sell products or magazines) I’m proud of my body and the way it looks because @themarkwildman kicks my butt in aerial. But my hips and thighs are a part of me (even though they magically weren’t in some shots!) I get those things from my momma. And I’m happy To shake what my momma gave me.”

Here are the behind-the-scene photos.

So, obviously she wasn’t too upset about it, but still, we give her props for at least acknowledging what happened — even though it’s still pretty effed up. H/T Cosmopolitan.
