Women’s Health Whittles Another Waist!


If the camera adds five to ten pounds, then someone needs to give poor actress Amber Heard a burger, quick-like.

Heard, 25, the star of the short lived NBC series The Playboy Club, as well as movies like this year’s The Rum Diary, graces the cover of the December issue of Women’s Health magazine. But if I were her, I might have a beef (pun intended) with the magazine for portraying her with a totally unrealistic-looking waist.

Again, Women’s Health seems to have whittled yet another celeb’s waist into the negative stratosphere, making her look not only distorted but seriously emaciated in the midriff.

Remember when Ralph Lauren was lambasted and then publicly apologized for digitally butchering model Filippa Hamilton’s waist to appear seriously malnourished in a RL ad? Well, Heard’s waist ain’t too far from Filippa’s.

Heard, a girl-next-door stunner in an orange tank and jeans ought to take issue with WH for whittling her waist smaller than her head!

More importantly, who over there at WH thinks these distorted digital images are the end all-be all of attractiveness? The actress is already thin and beautiful.  Hello? Hate to tell ya WH, but the digital wasting (waist erasing) has twisted and contorted Heard in a totally unnatural way, making her head look giant for her tiny child-like frame.

In two spots in the magazine, readers are directed to view Heard’s cover shoot video at WomensHealthMag.com/Amber and WomensHealthMag.com/December, yet neither link is operational and the youtube version is simply a still shot that says due to copyright issues the video can’t be shown.

Hmmm. Wonder if that’s because readers might see Heard’s real waist.

You decide.

Here she is in more realistic times!
