It’s unfortunate that, in the movie biz, selling sex is just as important, if not more so, than making a good film. But that’s Hollywood, baby. The objectification of actresses goes far beyond the unhealthy beauty standards women are held to and straight to advertising. Ridiculously photoshopped actresses in movie posters aren’t anything new, but some instances go beyond the pale in terms of the unnecessary work done to the bodies of women used in a film’s promotional art. It’s almost as if film distributors believe the movie-going public is composed of pitchfork-wielding villagers and an unretouched actress on a poster is Frankstein's monster

Prior to wildly photoshopped movie posters, most onesheets were illustrated, or featured airbrushed stills from a film. Now that key art can be digitally enhanced to an absurd degree, the hypersexualization of movie posters has become the thing to do when promoting a film. Sexist movie poster photoshopping often contains some of the least realistic touch-ups you’ll ever seen. For instance, every actress suddenly has ginormous breasts (including the underage gals – very upsetting), and heaven forbid women have wrinkles.

Thanks to computers and a few pervs who specialize in fixing women’s bodies for them, movie posters will never be ugly again. Keep reading and vote up the most heinously photoshopped women in movie posters.
