recipients include Meryl Streep, Spike Lee, Jean-Luc Godard and Ingrid

In March 2010 the actress appeared to have had her face airbrushed in an advert for the make-up company.

However, in 2003 she complained when a GQ magazine cover shot was digitally altered to make her look slimmer.

And only two years ago she proclaimed: ‘I have wrinkles which are very evident.
'I will particularly say when I look at movie posters, “You guys have airbrushed my forehead. Please can you change it back”'
