Mum­bai: “Scan­dal” star Kerry Wash­ing­ton says she was taken aback to see her cover photo on a mag­a­zine as it looked com­pletely dif­fer­ent from how she looks in real life. Wash­ing­ton took to Face­book to slam the pho­to­shop­ping job of her cover im­age.

“I love AD­WEEK. It’s a pub­li­ca­tion I ap­pre­ci­ate. And learn from. I’ve long fol­lowed them on Twit­ter. And when they in­vited me to do a cover, I was ex­cited and thrilled. And the truth is, I’m still ex­cited. I’m proud of the ar­ti­cle. And I like some of the inside images a great deal. But, I have to be hon­est… I was taken aback by the cover. “Look, I’m no stranger to Pho­to­shop­ping. It hap­pens a lot. In a way, we have be­come a so­ci­ety of pic­ture ad­justers – who doesn’t love a fil­ter?!?,” Wash­ing­ton said, adding she wanted to “ad­dress the im­pact of my al­tered im­age in the past and I think it’s a valu­able con­ver­sa­tion.”

“Yes­ter­day, how­ever, I just felt weary. It felt strange to look at a pic­ture of my­self that is so dif­fer­ent from what I look like when I look in the mir­ror. It’s an un­for­tu­nate feel­ing,” she said in a Face­book post. In­dian Ex­press
