But this cover wants me to believe that Chopra's armpits are smooth like a baby's bottom and I can't live with that lie.

Hello, digitally retouched armpit from hell. You are the antithesis of a real armpit, one with natural creases and glorious pigmentation and the beautiful, stubbly memory of hair.

It's pretty basic, TBH. Lots of people aspire to look like actresses on magazine covers. And it's LITERALLY, PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to have armpits like this. So a lot of young girls are gonna see these armpits and grow up hating their own.

So chill, Maxim India. Chill, photoshoppers. Chill, PC-fan teen girls. Yours and Priyanka's armpits are ALL FLAWLESS, crinkles and all.
