Julia Roberts Ad Banned in UK for Being \"Airbrushed\"
Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has pulled a pair of ads featuring Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington for being “overly-airbrushed.”

I’m looking at the Julia Roberts ads and wondering what the problem is, that’s just Julia Roberts face, don't they know everyone in Hollywood always glows like that?!

It was a member of Parliament, Jo Swinson, who told ASA about the “overly-airbrushed” Julia Roberts Lancome ad and Christy Turlington’s spot for Maybelline. “We should have some honesty in advertising and that’s exactly what the ASA is there to do. I’m delighted they’ve upheld these complaints.” She says.

“Excessive airbrushing and digital manipulation techniques have become the norm, but both Christy Turlington and Julia Roberts and naturally beautiful women who don’t need retouching to look great. This ban sends a powerful message to advertisers – let’s get back to reality,” says Swinson.

I think we have larger issues than Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington looking too pretty. What about the fact that pregnant teens are paraded around TV like pageant dogs and juiced up guidos make a million dollars a season on the Jersey Shore? Just sayin.

L’Oreal admitted to using techniques to enhancing Turlington’s face, but says that’s just a result of using their fabulous product! L’Oreal: for when you want your face to shine the pages of Glamour.

I’m sorry the Brits are stuck with Lily Allen and Simon Cowell as style icons, but don’t ban the US because we’re beautiful(ly enhanced).
