Los Angeles: Actress-director Lena Dunham has apologised to Spanish magazine Tentaciones for accusing them of photoshopping her image on their March cover.

The 29-year-old "Girls" creator took to Instagram to clear the confusion.
"Hey Tentaciones- thank you for sending the uncropped image (note to the confused: not unretouched, uncropped!) and for being so good natured about my request for accuracy. I understand that a whole bunch of people approved this photo before it got to you- and why wouldn't they? I look great (sic)," Dunham wrote.
"But it's a weird feeling to see a photo and not know if it's your own body anymore (and I'm pretty sure that will never be my thigh width but I honestly can't tell what's been slimmed and what hasn't.) I'm not blaming anyone (y'know, except society at large.)," the actress wrote, adding that she has a complicated history with retouching.
Dunham had earlier posted that the magazine had done "mad photoshop" on her image. "But this is not what my body has ever looked like or will ever look like - mad photoshop has been done to this iteration. So if you're into what I do, why not be honest with your readers? Much love, Lena," Dunham had earlier written.
