This Insanely Photoshopped Cannes Poster Will Make Your Blood Boil

What. How. Why. WHAT IS HAPPENING?!

Cannes Film Festival hasn't even started yet, and it's already exhibiting major signs of sexism. Good times!

The festival recently debuted their poster, and at first glance it's simply a lovely image of Italian actress Claudia Cardinale twirling on a Roman rooftop in 1959. The thing is, it's photoshopped to make her waist and legs appear thinner.

See? NOT. COOL.

While the internet is obviously so not here for this, Cardinale herself doesn't seem too bothered. "This image has been retouched to accentuate this effect of lightness and transpose me into a dream character," she told The Huffington Post (via The Guardian). "This concern for realism has no place here and, as a committed feminist, I see no affront to the female body. There are many more important things to discuss in our world. It's only cinema."

Status update: strongly disagree. It might only be cinema, but this poster carries with it a not-so-subtle implication that the female body isn't good enough as it is. Do better, person in charge of making Cannes posters.
