Halle Berry graces the cover of Harper's Bazaar Magazine. The 42 year-old actress dishes about her sex life and how she keeps up with her younger K-Fed baby daddy model Gabriel Aubrey. "I have a 33-year-old man," she says. "That'll keep your mojo mojo-in." People are buzzing because Halle Berry appears to have her skin lightened on the issue and has become a victim of bad photoshop techniques. Kim Kardashian and Beyonce have been involved in similar photoshop skin lightening controversies.
Halle Berry's a stunning woman, yet some say that wasn't enough for fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar. The 'Net's buzzing with media types claiming the actress' skin was lightened, her cheekbones were enlarged and that her face was slimmed down.
Entertainmentwise.com wrote that, "at first glance the smouldering cover girl is almost unrecognisable [sic] as the 42-year-old Oscar winner thanks to some over-zealous airbrushing." And the New York Daily News said that she "looks suspiciously airbrushed - and much older than usual - on the bubble-gum pink cover."
Lighting and makeup can dramatically change the way a person's skin color appears on film. Plus if they were doing all that, why would they not take care of those under-eye thingies she's got going on? And haven't we all come to accept that photo retouching is a way of life? But what we don't understand is that blonde wig! Really, Halle's normal, dark tresses would have fit in just fine. [S2S]
