“Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level, but what I will say, is that is her butt. It is not padded. It is not augmented. That is all really her," Boardman said. "But, yes, there was retouching to clean things up and make things look amazing. That’s what retouching is. It’s not building an a– that isn’t there or taking 50 pounds off the waist.”
