Lena Dunham: champion of body confidence, feminism and women's rights has slammed a Spanish magazine for heavily retouching a photo of her, claiming her body has 'never looked like that'.

Sharing a picture of the March issue of TENTACIONES on Twitter and Instagram, Lena added a caption about how happy she was to be on the cover and to work with the specific photographer, but that there was no need to use "mad photoshop".

She wrote: "Oh hello El Pais! I am genuinely honored to be on your cover and so happy you licensed a pic by @ruvenafanador, who always makes me feel gorgeous. BUT this is NOT what my body has ever looked like or will ever look like- the magazine has done more than the average photoshop. So if you're into what I do, why not be honest with your readers? Much love, Lena."

YAAAS QUEEN SLAY. As Lena puts it, as a society we must be honest with ourselves about what a female body *actually* looks like - rather than when it's been retouched and edited within an inch of it's life.

All this comes as Khloe Kardashian slammed "haters" as "petty" for calling her out for photoshopping her Instagram posts, but considering any editing feeds into a wider issue of setting unattainable beauty standards for women.
