The 53 worst celebrity Photoshop fails of all time

INSIDER Logo By Jacob Shamsian of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 107: 
  Magazines often alter the appearance of celebrities in their
  pages.
  
  Celebrities do it themselves, too, on their social media
  accounts.
  
  Sometimes Photoshopping is used to clear up
  slight blemishes or adjust lighting, but other times it makes
  people look unrecognizable.
  
  Not even Brad Pitt or Beyoncé are free from disastrous
  Photoshop jobs. Here are the worst offenders.
  

  Magazines have always been in the business of crafting celebrity
  appearances. Even before Photoshopexisted in 1988, the
  magazine industry has collaborated with celebrities to carefully
  present images that shape our consciousness.

  Digital editing takes that to another degree. Now, any celebrity
  can change their appearance in a photo with the swipe of a
  finger.

  For many people, it's a serious problem. One major criticism
  lobbed at celebrities and magazines is that they promote unrealistic body
  standards - especially for women.

  Celebrities often 
  post Photoshopped selfies. And, of course, altered images are
  common in advertising as well.
  Sometimes, though, the manipulation is obvious.
  And that leads fans, critics, and even celebrities themselves to
  sometimes react harshly.

  Here are 53 celebrity Photoshops that turned into disasters.
