Jameela Jamil has taken to Twitter to say she is thrilled that her un-airbrushed body appears in the latest round of advertising materials for The Good Place.
The actress, who plays socialite Tahani on the show, shared an image of the poster for Season 4, and then zoomed in on a close-up of her under-arm. She wrote:
“Finally able to INSIST my image, even on billboards isn’t ever airbrushed. I get backfat in Every. Single. Bra.”
“And I used to hide/bin so many photos because of “muffin tops.” Double chins / “imperfections” because I never saw them on people on TV.”
She later added:
“I’m aware this isn’t some huge victory, and [it’s] not “brave” but as someone who had such obsessive body dysmorphia and was so fixated on the embarrassment of what we perceive as “flaws” this is just a little win for little anorexic teenage me.”
The Good Place, which stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, and Manny Jacinto, is about a group of people who find themselves in an afterlife that’s not all it seems.
The show will end at the conclusion of its upcoming fourth season, with creator Mike Schur saying:
“At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we didn’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant.”
