two for tuesdays ; twice the fun of having actual "work done"... *lol*
British actress Kate Winslet is once again at the centre of an image riddle after photos to promote her latest movie appeared to have been artificially enhanced.
Winslet, whose figure was airbrushed on the cover of British men's magazine GQ two years ago, looks slender and taut in the promotional posters for forthcoming film “Romance and Cigarettes,” despite giving birth to her second child less than two years ago.
Image expert, Chris Bickmore told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "Kate has been given a real skin polish, to the extent that there is no detail. There are no lines where her foot and hand bend, no blemishes on her skin anywhere and no veins on her hand. Her legs also appears to have been made slightly slimmer, especially around the knees."
Technical wizards also claim the 29-year-old beauty, who also has a four-year-old daughter, Mia, from her first marriage, has had her breasts perfected with the help of computer wizardry.
Winslet — who once compared her post-pregnancy boobs to "the ears off a dog" — appears to have developed an impressive freestanding cleavage in the posters despite lying on her back in the photo. "I think her breasts have definitely had work done. She is quite a voluptuous woman,” Bickmore added. "They would surely sag down to the sides a bit but they appear to be too pert and upright."
A spokesman for the film's distributors, Icon Films admitted that the “Finding Neverland” star's image had been touched-up, but insisted that any work was for the sake of the film rather than vanity.
"The graphics department have had a bit of a go at the poster,” he admitted, “not really altering the image as such, but just giving it a bit more of a gritty feel."
Single six lover Bullock
(BANG) - Sandra Bullock has vowed never to get pressured into marriage - preferring six lovers instead.
*(Now THAT is a tad excessive... even by Hollywood standards?!? Surely?!? No?!? Sheesh...)*
The Hollywood beauty, who is still single at 40, refuses to bow to society's expectations and wishes people were more liberal.
She said: "Why is marriage the pinnacle for everyone? People get married for the wrong reasons.
"We need to start looking at different packages, whether it's living together or being with six partners or dedicating your life to taking care of flowers."
The outspoken star has also vowed never to get pregnant until she finds 'The One'.
Sandra - who is dating father-of-three, Discovery Channel presenter Jesse James - added: "I'll only have a child with a man I'm truly in love with."
Last month, the actress claimed she could still be a sex symbol, despite her age.
She said at the time: "I don't know why people make an issue out of it. Do they think things fall off when you turn 40? Have I had plastic surgery? No, look at me."
Sandra B can be lauded for not having any ''work done'', digitally or otherwise - but really, her advice on lifestyle matters leaves a lot to be desired...
