One of the comics (Pickles) in the newspaper today showed the grandson watching his grandmother, Opal, put on her night cream. He asks her what the cream is and Opal responds, “Wrinkle cream.” The grandson then says, “Boy! That stuff really works.” In other words, he thinks that the wrinkle cream is supposed to give you wrinkles.

That made me chuckle and think about Diane Keaton. Before anyone gets their panties in a knot, this is not a thread bashing Diane Keaton (I’m actually a fan of hers; I looooooooved her in Baby Boom, Looking for Mr. Goodbar, and Something’s Gotta Give – I personally think she’s a very talented actress), nor is this a thread bashing older women (I’m over 40, so…). It’s simply a thread about photoshopping and camera filtering.

Diane Keaton, who’s 68, made an appearance at the Golden Globes this month, and she looked noticeably different than she does in her commercials for anti-aging skin care products. She appears to be aging gracefully (a few wrinkles here and there) in person, yet in commercials she appears to be practically wrinkle-free (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/13/loreal-diane-keaton-commercial_n_4591313.html).

I just think the commercials border on false advertising, considering Ms. Keaton barely resembles her true self in those commercials .

Same reason Kirstie A's waist was 'magically' transformed 10 inches smaller in pics versus in the real.

"Why does Diane Keaton have wrinkles in real life but not in commercials for anti-aging skincare products?"

Because showing wrinkles will not sell the cream.

The commercials ARE false advertising. For every cosmetic product, there should be fine print that tells you: in addition to using this product on a regular basis, you need to hire a professional photoshop, make-up, and soft lighting camera crew to follow you around.

This is why all those "celebrities without makeup!" pictures are always so shocking.

Actually, ALL those celebrities who sell beauty creams or even hair products in commercials are heavily filtered and whatnot to the point they resemble wax figures almost. Diane is but one example. I agree, it is all false advertising.

If this really news? Or even a question?

Hasn't Diane Keaton made enough money from her film career that she shouldn't need to get involved in falsely advertising beauty products?

L'Oreal accused of heavily-photoshopping Diane Keaton ad | Mail Online


Your link has far better pictures than the Huffington Post link that I used. I loved the tweet that said: Wow L’Oreal. Great timing. I guess Diane Keaton stopped using your product!
