‘The Good Place’ Star Jameela Jamil Praises Magazine For Agreeing Not To Airbrush Her “Squish”

“I find photoshop to be one of the worst things to happen to women.”

Activist and resident funny girl on The Good Place, Jameela Jamil has long advocated for body positivity.

In fact, the UK-born actress feels so strongly about the cause she even started an initiative called "I Weigh," which aims to make women "feel valuable and see how amazing we are, and look beyond the flesh on our bones."

Additionally, Jameela regularly advocates to ensure that the images we see in the media remain as real as possible.

Jamil praised a magazine recently after it agreed to not airbrush her or her "squish" (that's her term, not ours. We, of course, think she's perfect and squishless) on its latest covershoot.

Publicising the shoot on Instagram, Jameela uploaded several photos from the story and wrote:

It is not surprising that Jameela consciously asked the publication to avoid photoshopping her, as the actress has long been outspoken about the way media and influencers shape our self-worth.

Recently, she took aim at Kim Kardashian for advertising appetite suppressant lollipops, claiming that Kardashian is a "terrible and toxic influence on young girls."

Jameela's fearless attitude toward promoting self-worth is certainly refreshing. We love anyone who advocates for female empowerment.
