BRITISH actress Jameela Jamil has spoken out against airbrushing in the entertainment industry, saying it left her strruggling with her body image.
The 32-year-old, who has Indian and Pakistani heritage, has said that pictures of her were altered to make her look whiter and thinner when she started out in her career.
‘When I first started out in this industry, I didn’t know I was allowed to say no to aibrushing,’ she told Red magazine. ‘I was given a whiter face, a little English nose and perfect skinny thighs. It makes me feel gross. I’m sorry to anyone who ever saw pictures of me like that and wanted to be thin like me.’
The former Radio 1 presenter, who has criticised the use of detox and diet products aimed at young women, said she still has issues about her own body image.
