I consider myself a writer. I've written for two college newspapers, and two degrees in communication.

Recently, more and more celebrities have spoken out against being photoshopped. In 2004, Keira Knightly’s breast were photoshopped to appear bigger than what they are in real life. “Most movies reflect only what middle-aged white men want and identify with” said Knightly in an interview with Net-A-Porter.
Keira Knightly also says that she has turned down roles because she thought she was being asked to do things male actors are never asked to do—specifically gratuitous sex and violence. (Time)
In 2014, Knightly set the record straight about her body by proudly being photographed topless for Interview Mag “because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are.”

Keira Knightley recently posed topless in Interview Magazine as her own personal protest against photoshopping. Knightley told The Timesshe demanded the (not safe for work) photos be unedited so people could see what she really looked like.
“I’ve had my body manipulated so many different times for so many different reasons, whether it’s paparazzi photographers or for film posters,” Knightley said. “That [shoot] was one of the ones where I said: ‘OK, I’m fine doing the topless shot so long as you don’t make them any bigger or retouch.’ Because it does feel important to say it really doesn’t matter what shape you are.”
Knightley’s figure was controversially distorted on the poster for King Arthur in 2004: Her breasts were edited to look bigger than they are in real life. Though the studio bore the…

Through Oct. 8 and 9, Paramount Pictures allowed college press an amazing opportunity to attend the “Jackass 3D” pre-screening and interview the stars of the film.
The crew reunited for their 10 year anniversary to make “Jackass” in 3-D.
The all star cast includes: Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna, Preston Lacy, Dave England, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, Ehren McGhehy and the director Jeff Tremaine along with multiple guest stars.
On Oct. 8, I attended the press pre-screening of the movie at Mann’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
At the showing, the audience was provided with complimentary soda and popcorn.
As the theatre quickly filled up everyone was given the option to sit in the regular theater seat or a “D-Box” motion seat. I took the “D-Box” seat and enjoyed the action as if…
