Melissa McCarthy's Image Altered on UK Poster for New Movie

Ethan Miller/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Melissa McCarthy has undergone a digital makeover for the U.K. promotional poster for her latest movie, the cop comedy The Heat.

As a British website has pointed out, McCarthy's face on the poster has been noticeable altered -- it is slimmed down, and her eye color has been darkened.

McCarthy is featured on the poster alongside her co-star, Sandra Bullock, whose image appears not to have been enhanced.  The Heat opens in the U.S. on June 28.

Needless to say, this isn't the first time a celebrity's physical attributes have been altered for promotional reasons.  In fact, McCarthy's image on a poster for her 2011 comedy Bridesmaids reportedly was also altered.

There's been no word yet from McCarthy regarding the U.K. Heat poster.
