Men’s Fitness‘ Johnson Reveals Tiger’s Guns

tiger_071607.jpgNewly-installed Men’s Fitness editor Roy S. Johnson has scored a bit of a coup with this month’s cover subject, Tiger Woods, revealing the golfer’s surprisingly tough fitness regiment — and Andy Roddick-sized guns. But getting inside access to the press-averse Tiger isn’t easy. As Min notes, Johnson, like Tiger, a Stanford alum, has a history with Woods: “In 1993, [Tiger's late father] Earl Woods did his Stanford due-diligence in asking me about the school,” says Johnson. “I recommended it, and a few years later I wrote a ‘the sports world will never be the same’ Fortune cover story on Tiger just as he was turning professional. Proved prophetic, and we have been good friends since.”

    Unlike recent egregious examples of magazine photoshoppery (see Angelina Jolie, Andy Roddick) Star‘s art department didn’t focus on Jennifer Aniston‘s guns; rather, her sunglasses and an art catalog from Los Angeles Modern Auctions.

    Another day, another magazine photo-doctoring faux pas. The latest: In Touch, which apparently photoshopped out Angelina Jolie‘s veins for its latest cover. Editor Richard Spencer is unapologetic: “You’re right, we softened those veins. The arm was very, very veiny. … I think they can forgive it for the cover — unless it is a story specifically about their body. This was about her plans to expand her family.”

    Meanwhile, an insider tells the New York Post that Men’s Fitness‘s doctoring of tennis star Andy Roddick‘s guns has led to an uproar in the art department, with design consultant Mary Anne Bulter resigning and staff design director John Gilman threatening to leave.
