Audrey Hepburn got Photoshopped!

Fine, maybe they didn't have Photoshop back then (what with the not-having-computers and all). But Hepburn did undergo some airbrushing for her 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's," as promo pics for Sarah Gristwood's new coffee table book show, reports the New York Post.

The photo shows Hepburn posing for one of the movie's iconic publicity shots with pencil lines marking up her face, supposedly indicating where the gamine star could use a bit of smoothing.

From the look of it, the retoucher took care of the faintest crows feet and small lines beneath the 32-year-old actress's eyes.

While the desire to retouch Heburn's nearly perfect face is fairly appalling, it's less appalling that airbrushing occured back in the 1960s. The search for perfection, after all, is timeless.
