LOS ANGELES -- These days, when we a see a celeb on the cover of a magazine, it's safe to say they've been photoshopped. But it's not too often a celeb calls out a publication because they're looking too skinny.
Well, that's just what Zendaya did. The singer/actress, who's gracing the cover of Modeliste Magazine's November issue, posted this picture to her Instagram, showing the edited and unedited version of her picture.

Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it😍😘 Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue.
You can see how the edited version shaves off quite a bit of her hip, and slims her stomach.
That was enough to make her post this message stating:
"Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19-year-old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self-conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have."
The magazine's editor quickly responded and admitted, "The images had been retouched to an extent that was not acceptable."
And she's pulling the issue to have the images restored to their natural state.
Hey, this isn't a new trend Zendaya is starting. Lately, a lot of celebs are becoming more comfortable putting their untouched selves out there for the world to see. Heck, Kate Winslet is refusing to let her abs be airbrushed in her new Lancome ads.
It's kind of a breath of fresh air in this world where things just aren't picture perfect.
