Lena Dunham called out a magazine for Photoshopping her on its front cover

But they came right back at her.

LATE LAST NIGHT, Lena Dunham came across a magazine featuring herself – but she barely recognised the person on the cover.

The magazine in question was Tentaciones – a monthly supplement that comes with Spain’s largest newspaper El Pais.

So she called them out on Instagram for the Photoshopping

She captioned the post:

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.

Game over? Not quite.

Tentaciones issued an open letter back to Dunham addressing the comments this afternoon

They say that they haven’t retouched the photo at all:

this photo was previously approved by the agency, the photographer and your publicist.
Here at TENTACIONES, we acquired the photo via the Corbis agency, and we used the original that they sent us without applying any kind of retouching.

They then linked Lena to the original photo on photographer Ruven Afanador’s Facebook page

They finished their letter with a cheeky offer of a subscription to the mag:

We are delighted to see that you still have your rebellious spirit. Let us have your address and we’ll send you our magazine as a courtesy every month, so that you can see for yourself that we like to reflect things the way that they really are.

So now. Shots fired.
