News Muse – You have been Photoshopped!

It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of Keira Knightley. But it seems that Chanel are. She hit the headlines not long ago when she allegedly refused to have her bosom digitally enhanced for The Duchess. Yet, in the latest Chanel ad Ms Knightley is showing off quite a pair…of braces.

A similar thing happened to Hayden Panettiere – you know, the kick-ass cheerleader from Heroes – just earlier this summer when the poster for her latest movie I Love You Beth Cooper came out.


What is going on? What’s wrong with a smaller cup-size? Is it perhaps so that the people making the ‘big’ decisions are still men with inflated egos and deflated…? Or is the media world in desperate need of some courses to brush up on their Photoshop skills?

The other, er, big story this week comes from the New York Post, and it claims that Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney and Johnny Depp are all being considered to play Frank Sinatra in Martin Scorsese’s planned biopic.

Scorsese of course wants DiCaprio and he wants to focus on the violence, boozing and the sex that was all part of Frankie’s Rat Pack lifestyle. But Sinatra’s daughter, Tina Sinara, who is executive producer on the project, prefers George Clooney as she would like to showcase the softer side of her father in a clean version of his life story that focuses on his music. Universal on the other hand are pushing for Johnny Depp because, let’s face it, he brings in the $$$.

I for one would much rather pay to watch Scorsese’s controversial version than some mushy feature-length music video. But I’d swap DiCaprio for Depp, because he always has the ability to fascinate me with his role interpretations.

Johnny Depp

Who do you think should play Ol’ Blue Eyes?
