Jameela Jamil poses for the cover of Nylon ‘s December 2018/January 2019 issue.
The 32-year-old The Good Place actress, who recently criticized celebs who get paid to endorse detox teas , spoke out against people who use Photoshop on their social media photos.
“When you’re Photoshopped you’re setting yourself up for a fall, because you can’t live up to a digitized image… Stop Photoshopping your images. I really think it’s so gross,” Jameela said.
“I think it’s a disgusting crime to Photoshop your images and put them out there in the world without announcing that’s what you’ve done,” Jameela said. “It’s a lie, you’re lying to your fans, and your followers, and people who look up to you. You’re an asshole. I really believe that. You’re an asshole. You’re allowing the insecurity that ruined your life to pour back out into other people. You are recycling that self-hatred. You are recycling that insecurity, and you should stop.”
After letting out a laugh, Jameela told the mag, “I know I’m really severe about that. But I didn’t eat as a teenager for three years because of people elongating their legs and thinning out their images… We have to rebel against this, we have to see flaws.”
