Rosamund Pike is currently promoting her new Netflix movie I Care a Lot, a dark comedy thriller that sees her play a con artist who tricks the legal system into making her a guardian of vulnerable elders.

This week she appeared virtually on The Kelly Clarkson Show to discuss the role and while in conversation with the former American Idol winner she spoke out against how her body has been altered multiple times for films without her permission.

"I was on a flight the other day — well, when I last flew which was over a year ago — but I was on a flight with this guy and I took a selfie and he looked over my shoulder when I didn't know and said, “Oh no, babe, you gotta Facetune that,'" she recalled. "I said, 'Sorry, what?' That was my introduction to the world of Facetuning which I then realised has often happened—we are body-tuning."

"In the poster for Johnny English, my breasts were augmented," she continued. "In the poster, they're kind of caricature, I've got a very impressive chest which I don't have.”

She also revealed that her eye colour was changed in the 2019 film Radioactive, saying, "For Radioactive, strangely, they made my eyes brown. I still don’t quite know why."

She added, "Those are the obvious times, right? When you do notice, 'Oh, I’ve got brown eyes' or 'I’ve got massive breasts'. But there’s probably countless times where our image is doctored and we don’t notice it. Because I think we’re all losing our grip on what we really look like."

Agreeing with Pike, Clarkson also revealed that she too has had images of her body altered throughout her career.

"I've had the same thing done to me on album covers and magazine covers and I have no part of it," she said. "Like I'm totally fine with what I look like," Clarkson said, before adding that it "bothers" her that these images are created without her consent.

"I don't know how to use Photoshop; I don't even know how to Zoom," she said. "My assistant has to do it for me. So like, I don't know how to do any of that stuff."
