The Oscar winner, 34, posted the cover of the fashion bible’s latest issue, saying: ‘ I am disappointed Grazia invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.’
She also shared the unedited photo in which her curly ponytail is very much visible, and the Twelve Years A Slave star insisted she had not been consulted about any alteration of the image.
A spokesperson for Grazia UK told MailOnline that the magazine had not asked for the image to be altered, suggesting the image had already been airbrushed when they received it.
