LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Lena Dunham is apologizing for accusing a magazine of photoshopping her image.

The star of the HBO series “Girls” says she didn’t recognize her body on the cover of the Spanish magazine, Tentaciones. In an Instagram post, Dunham said in part:

“This is NOT what my body has ever looked like or will ever look like- the magazine has done more than the average photoshop.”


In response, the magazine sent her the original photograph and indicated in an open letter to her, posted on its website, that it only cropped the image.

“Those who are familiar with and follow our magazine will know that we do not use Photoshop nor other digital tools to change the physical appearance of our cover stars, nor in the features to be found inside,” the magazine said in part.

After being sent the uncropped image, Dunham posted another image via Instagram and said:

“Hey Tentaciones- thank you for sending the uncropped image (note to the confused: not unretouched, uncropped!) and for being so good natured about my request for accuracy.”


She went on to explain that it’s a weird feeling to see a photo and not know if it’s your own body. The photo was taken in 2013, and was acquired by the magazine from another agency.

The magazine explained that after they acquired the image, they used the original that was sent without retouching it.
