London: Kelly Brook has blasted airbrushing of photographs, while unveiling a giant poster of herself apparently slimmed down by the use of clever shadowing.
The star, 30, made the gaffe while launching a raunchy ad for Reebok.
Her nude picture, unveiled at London’s Battersea Power Station, appears to have been digitally altered to remove any blemishes.
“Airbrushing has been around since the ’50s,” the Daily Star quoted her as telling.
“It’s what Hollywood was built on and I’m a big fan of Hollywood and that whole era.
“If people are being slimmed down in photographs then I think that should definitely be pointed out because you don’t want to portray something that is unrealistic and unachievable to young teenage girls,” she added.
The huge billboard shows Kelly lying down wearing nothing but a pair of trainers.
She said: “It’s a bit scary having yourself up on a billboard. But I suppose I’ve got to get used to it because I just did a shoot for Playboy.”
“It seems this month is my naked month,” she added.
