'These are the things that make women self conscious.'

Reason No. 958 why we love Zendaya: she calls 'bullsh-t' when she sees it.

Earlier this week, the 19-year-old actress/singer called out digital fashion magazine Modeliste for running a retouched photo from a shoot. The image shows the star basking in the sun, with her hips and torso slimmed down.



After stitching together the retouched and unretouched photos, Zendaya wrote on Instagram:

"Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue."

Such a class act.
