Olivia Wilde may be the latest victim of magazine cover photoshopping as the August covergirl for Marie Claire. The sub-110 pound actress and model glams up the cover of Marie's latest mag but appears to have undergone a digital breast augmentation and facelift. While the cover of every editorial is always glammed up a bit, Wilde's Marie Claire cover makes her nearly unrecognizable.
READER: "THEY PHOTOSHOP HER TOO MUCH"
"The cover pic doesn’t even look like her." SkinnyVSCurvy.com reader seijidan says. "She’s a very pretty girl – actually, not pretty, but unique. But, they photoshop her too much."
PEAR-SHAPED WILDE IS SLIM, BUT NOT SCARY SKINNY
What's really wild, is the cover also shaved off Olivia's curves. The pear-shaped bombshell actually does have them (check out candid shots and compare here). Was there really any need to slim her down any more?
WHERE'S THE "BATHING SUIT CULTURE" COMING FROM?
Wilde's reported measurements are 32-27-32 and at 5-foot-7, it makes sense that the 27-year-old Maxim centerfold rocks an uber-thin frame, but she's undermined by magazines that don't let her flaunt her God-given body. She's been bashed for being too thin in the past (see controversial GQ photos here) and was recently berated as helping to sustain a "bathing suit culture" by a Maui News reader.
WILDE'S SPIN CLASSES TORCH 800 CALORIES PER HOUR
But in an "obese America" (a la Michelle Obama), gals like Olivia Wilde exude healthy living and positive body image. That is, when magazine's Photoshop editors don't get in the way. Wilde says her in-shape physique is thanks to a vegan diet "sometimes with fish" and yoga, Pilates and spin classes that torch nearly 800 calories in 45 minutes.
"I don’t own a scale so I’m not very conscious about whether I lose weight or gain weight.“
She cooks healthy dinners and stays active. Period. Wilde is also an indirect supporter of Fat-Talk Free Week because she doesn't use the word "fat" - ever.
OLIVIA'S #1 DON'T: NEVER USE THE WORD "FAT"
"If we deviate from our diet plan we say, ‘I feel clogged up,’” Wilde says of maintaing healthy eating at home for her upcoming flicks. Most talked about of late is Wilde's role as "Ella" in John Favreau's hit, Cowboys & Aliens, co-starring Daniel Craig. Rolling off her female superstar role in Tron, Wilde will take on yet another strong female character for the sci-fi western, something she believes is a good example for young girls.
WILDE: LITTLE GIRLS CAN LOOK UP TO ME
"I was shocked to see there weren’t many strong female characters in western cinema tradition," Wilde says of her part in Cowboys. "The great thing about playing a strong female character is that I feel like I’ve created someone for little girls to look up to."
