It's no secret that in an attempt to post the 'perfect' snap, celebrities often enjoy dabbling in photoshop. While some stars own up to the act, others are more secretive about the behind-the-scenes efforts involved. However, when a celebrity dares to post a raw, unedited photo, it must hurt that much more when they are still accused of editing. When this recently happened to Chris Evans, his legendary response had everyone laughing. Here's what went down...

The actor, who voices the iconic Pixar star, Buzz Lightyear, in the new animated film, Lightyear, appeared in photos on the Pixar social media account as part of the movie's promotion. While he has been highly praised for his performance as Buzz, fans had fewer positive things to say about his pose. Standing in front of Pixar Pier at Disneyland's Disney California Adventure Park, alongside other Disney Pixar characters, the photos caused a stir for an unexpected reason. Rather than buzzing about the movie, fans couldn't help but notice that Evans appeared to be photoshopped into the images.

In response, Evans owned up to the facts. No, not that he photoshopped it, but rather the truth that he just has no idea what to do with his hands in photos. "I promise I'm not photoshopped into these! I just have a very disciplined pose. (And I don't know what to do with my hands)," he hilariously responded to the editing claims. After a quick search online of his various red carpet poses, we can confirm that this pose is his default move - and despite it looking edited, we love him more for it.

The film, in which Evans stars alongside Uzo Aduba, James Brolin, Mary McDonald-Lewis, Keke Palmer, Efren Ramirez, Peter Sohn, Dale Soules, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Taika Waititi, is receiving positive reviews. It tells the origin story of the lovable Toy Story character, Buzz Lightyear. Although these promotional snaps haven't necessarily garnered the intended response, they do say 'all publicity is good publicity!' Catch the movie in theatres on June 17th!
