The Photoshop Monsters Make Sarah Silverman Their B*tch In 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' Posters

I’m really unnerved about the level of excitement I’m feeling for A Million Ways to Die in the West. I’m not supposed to like Seth MacFarlane. It’s a pact we sort of all agreed upon. But Ted was good, wasn’t it? And this cast? Oh this cast is great. We love all these people. So I’m cautiously optimistic? I mean the juvenile sex puns here aren’t instilling a lot of confidence and I’m a little upset by what the photoshop monsters did to Sarah Silverman. She’s many things, but a lollipop head she ain’t. Oh well, let’s hope my boy Liam Neesons gets out of this thing unscathed.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • MegP

    Funny that this about Sarah being photoshopped, but she was the ONLY one I actually could recognize. Even the men are butchered.

  • Mentalcase

    Why do "we" hate Seth MacFarlane again?

  • Space Raptor

    Seriously, what is up with Sarah Silverman's finger? It's pretty obvious that when she posed for that shot her finger wasn't in her mouth.
    It looks like it's broken or dislocated.

  • Is it really not clear that these are supposed to look like olde tyme western style photos, like the ones tourists get in every western-town-wannabe?

    I am kinda more bothered by the nitpickiness and the Upworthy outrage over something this trivial

  • I'm not seeing the problem. Corset, for one. Every single other poster has the same over-the-top pseudo-retro Photoshop treatment.

    This knee-jerk hatred of anything retouched is getting old and stupid. It's a tool that can be misused, but it's every use is not misuse.

    No notice of the friggin title on her poster? She's a whore. It's called fiction. Get a friggin grip.

  • Cowtools

    It's misuse if it's unnecessary and the results are worse than they would be without shopping. Like here.

  • You clearly don't understand how Photoshop or printing or photography work. Nothing goes to print without Photoshop.
    And "results" are subjective. I don't see anything wrong with any of them except for Charlize Lannister up there. But even that's not a Photoshop issue, it's a user issue.

  • Cowtools

    Publicity stills existed before Photoshop, and that seemed to go alright.
    Most music these days used Autotune too. That doesn't mean they should.

  • Dave Dorris

    Charlize's "guns" are obviously enhanced. Don't mistake me: She's one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet, but the main reason people like her breasts is because she was pretty free in showing them. They ain't that big.

  • Cowtools

    THAT'S Charlize Theron?!?

    Okay, now I've followed her career since Trial & Error (with Jeff Danuels and Michael Richards!) and I've watched Snow White & The Huntsman 3 times...and I Did. Not. Recognise. Her.

    That's just wrong. She looks less like herself in this pic than she did in Monster.

  • I seriously thought it was Sienna Miller...

  • All of these are awkwardly cropped in general. Study some basic composition, Photoshopper. My love for Giovanni Ribisi is warring with my loathing of Seth MacFarlane re: this film.

  • e jerry powell

    Thanks for reminding me that I still need to get Dame Helen Mirren on the phone to talk about... stuff.

  • Coolg82

    Granted, McFarlane and the other guys, possibly minus Ribsi, have been Photoshopped to hell too.

  • Cowtools

    Who are the blonde women in the first two posters? I feel like I should recognise their faces, but the photoshop has rendered them too generic.

  • Bodhi

    I think the Gold Digger is Amanda Seyfried

  • Cowtools

    Dear god! Karen! What have they done to you?!

  • Kristopher R

    Charlize looks more like Lena Headey in her poster. IMO

  • That's who I thought it was.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Um, her name is Vanelleope Von Schweetz, and there is no reason to make her self-conscious about her big head.

  • foolsage

    I need to watch that movie again. It was delightful.

  • Michelle

    I like the Liam Neeson one because I was only just made aware that "How big is Liam Neeson's cock" jokes are a thing.

  • Dana Delaney once cracked wise about it in an interview, that's all I know and I all I want to know.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Is that Charlize Theron? Because the photoshopping on her is pretty crazy - her nose looks very skinny. But I can't get too upset about photoshopping, not until seriously and for reals, someone does a side by side comparison of how men are photoshopped too.

    I...started to get a little excited once I saw NPH...against my better judgment...and then Liam Neeson's poster, with that subtitle kinda sealed the deal for me. So conflicted.

  • wojtek

    I thought it was the Coyote Ugly girl.

  • Yeah, if any of these looks like they were Photoshopped to hell, I would say it's Charlize's poster instead of Silverman's. At least you can recognize Sarah without a double take.

  • Hmm, I thought that was Cersei Lannister.

  • tamatha_uhmelmahaye

    I also found myself asking, "is that Charlize Theron?!" Because the resemblance is not obvious, but yeah, it's her.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I actually don't see the outrage over Sarah Silverman's poster. She's a skinny gal to begin with, and corsets are painful for a reason.

  • foolsage

    The ponytail plus the angle she's facing make her head look HUGE in that shot, so there's cause for complaint anyhow. I'm not seeing a lot of Photoshop work on her here though.

  • Carey Adams

    Thing is, Silverman doesn't really need photoshop. She's always been freakin' gorgeous. Hopefully the role is some kind of send-up on prostitution though and not the usually thankless crap.
