AceShowbiz - Busy Philipps has assured fans her moles were not photoshopped out on her Health magazine cover shoot.
Busy excitedly shared a photo of the cover on her Instagram page, and thanked editors for including her in the issue.
The "I Feel Pretty" actress is seen posing in a red bikini in the snap, though some of her followers noted that a few of her distinctive moles looked like they had been airbrushed out.
"They didn't and actually that was discussed," Busy replied to a concerned fan. "The light was super bright which is why they look less dark, but they did NOT airbrush off my moles. Promise you. I can show you the pics from the monitor at the shoot - it's truly just the bright light making them a little lighter."
Oh hi! I'm on the July/Aug cover of HEALTH MAGAZINE! @healthmagazine Look, the pursuit of health and what it means to be healthy is something I think about often and has for sure changed over the years. I feel so grateful and happy to be in a place where I feel like I’m trying my best every day to be as healthy as possible both physically and mentally. Whether that means working out daily, sleeping in, taking a bath, hanging with my kids more, going to therapy, eating more vegetables or getting nachos and margaritas really just depends on the day. ALSO! I LOVE that I'm wearing my @shopbando Anxiety necklace on the cover of this magazine!!!! It's so important to me that we destigmatize mental health issues so more people feel like they can talk freely and ask for help when they need it. Anyway. Thank you HEALTH! And I’m taking over their instagram today so head to @healthmagazine if you want! ❤️❤️❤️
This isn't the first time Busy has spoken about her moles, which are dotted over her face, neck and chest. In 2017, she revealed that while once working on a TV show, network bosses ordered for them all to be covered.
I just noticed that I basically have the little dipper on my face in moles!! FUN FACT: I once got a TV show and apparently the network told the producers to have makeup COVER ALL MY MOLES. Do you know that 1. That's literally almost impossible? 2. Moles covered with makeup look WAY weirder than when they're natural? 3. It's super insulting cause it's basically like saying, "we ALMOST think you're pretty, if you just got rid of this major part of what you look like"?? So anyway, the makeup artist tried for like 3 days and then was like fuck it! And I guess it was fine? But occasionally on here people say they hate them or they're ugly or I should have them removed and it's so weird to me. Without them, I think I'd look kindof plain and boring. (And yes. Of course I get them checked!)
"Do you know that 1. That's literally almost impossible? 2. Moles covered with make-up look WAY weirder than when they're natural? 3. It's super insulting cause it's basically like saying, "we ALMOST think you're pretty, if you just got rid of this major part of what you look like"??" the 38-year-old wrote on Instagram.
