Sarkozy's Vanishing Love Handles

Perhaps inspired by Putin's buff body, other world leaders are taking off their shirts. But when France's president Nicholas Sarkozy's picture was published in Paris Match magazine, a rival publication noticed that his love handles were tactfully airbrushed away:

Speculation is rife that Mr Sarkozy used his powerful contacts in the French media to demand some serious airbrushing.

Paris Match is owned by a close friend, Arnaud Lagardere, whose other paper Le Journal du Dimanche recently dropped a story revealing that Mr Sarkozy's wife Cecilia had not voted for him in the election.

hu, Photoshop... Maybe the "Original" pic was Photoshoped to make people believe that Sarkozy has love handles? We'll never be sure.

Reminds me that Weekly World News stopped printing, what a shame...

how can you tell something like this is airbrushed or photoshopped if you don't have the original photo?

I'm just curious because it seems that this sort of thing is becoming easier to do and more sophisticated. (although it's been happening for a long time)
