It's a widely know fact that images of celebrity are stretched, pinched and smoothed into perfection before the public lays eyes on them, but sometimes the results are a lot more horrifying than a subtle nip and tuck.

Check out the images that riled celebrities, shocked the general public and hopefully got some incompetent retouchers fired below.

Kristen Stewart Gets Disarmed

Kristen Stewart appears to be the victim of a vicious spate of left arm robberies... Or Photoshop, you decide!

Jennifer Lawrence Proves You CAN Mess With Perfection

The unphotoshopped picture of Jennifer Lawrence on the right shows the Oscar winning actress looking just about as perfect as a human being can, but even that wasn't good enough for Flare Magazine. The shame.

Kate Winslet: All Strung Out

Kate Winslet was furious about the unrealistic giraffe legs she was given by GQ Magazine in 2008. The proudly curvy actress spoke out about the incident and explained that:

I actually have a Polaroid that the photographer gave me on the day of the shoot… I can tell you they've reduced the size of my legs by about a third. For my money it looks pretty good the way it was taken

The Curious Case of Keira Knightly's Chest

Keira Knightly was so insulted by the boob job that she was given on this King Arthur poster that she underwent a personal campaign to highlight photoshop use in the industry.

The 29-year-old actress posed topless on her own terms earlier this year with the following explanation:

I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters. That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said: ‘OK, I’m fine doing the topless shot so long as you don’t make them any bigger or retouch.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are

Amen, Keira

She's Behind You!

Who knew that Zahara Jolie-Pitt had a secret twin?

High School of Horror

I knew these guys must have been the result of a nuclear disaster, they are far too cheerful to be normal teens.

What's Eating Adam Lavigne?

The right side of Adam Levigne's torso has been totally eaten away, but mercifully he has Anne V's buttocks to take his mind off the tragic accident.

Beyoncé's Photoshop Diet

Beyoncé might have a killer Amazonian figure that most of us would kill kittens for, but even she clearly suffers from insecurity.

The singer has been accused of photoshopping her own Instagram posts, and the wobbly steps in her thigh gap certainly seems to verify the claim...

Julianne Moore Goes Bareback

I'm no anatomist, but I'm pretty sure shoulders don't work like that.

Vintage Miley Cyrus Wants to Give You a Hand!

When a teenage girl is totally into a dreamy guy like Nick Jonas, they have been known to grow extra hands.

Is That You, Sarah Jessica Parker?!

Sarah Jessica Parker's horrifically photoshopped dragon face is actually scaring me.


Do you think magazines need to chill with the photoshop?
