Stunning Russian actress Natalya Rudova has been left red-faced after a sultry snap in the ocean made her bottom half look much larger than it really is.
The distorted snap was taken by Rudova’s gorgeous model pal Anastasia Reshetova, 25, as the pair enjoys a beach holiday together with the latter’s one-year-old son.
The celebrity pals are holidaying in the resort town of Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera.
While enjoying a dip in the sea, Reshetova asked her pal to pose for a snap and the blonde actress shot the camera a sultry look.
However, the finished result was more comical than sexy as the water distorted Rudova’s bottom half to make her appear much larger than she really is.
Seeing the funny, Rudova, 38, posted Reshetova’s photo on Instagram for her 4.4 million followers.
She accompanied the snap with the lighthearted message: “My best photo. No filters. No Photoshop.”
Rudova added: “Special thanks to the photographer – Anastasia Reshetova.”
Her Russian model mate, who has 3.9 million Instagram followers, responded to the post with the message: “Cool body!”
The 38-year-old actress has been reminding her followers that she actually boasts a stunning figure by posting a series of eye-popping photos of her donning swimwear and sporting fetching evening getup during her holiday in France.
In response to her distorted-water snap, Instagram follower ‘Weiwezeeer’ joked: “If I ever go there, I will definitely take a picture without swimming trunks!”
Netizen ‘Murr_katik’ said: “Expectation and reality!”
‘Ibiza163.official’ commented: “Mermaids are always mysterious…”
