The perpetually perfect Laverne Cox posted a photo on Instagram in which her nose looked tinier than usual, and people immediately began wondering if the Orange is the New Black star and trans activist had gotten rhinoplasty (aka a nose job).

It wasn't a nose job, though—just a Snapchat filter, as Cox was quick to point out.

Her caption reads:

For everyone who thinks I had a nose job, the surgeon is snapchat. The first photo has #nofilter. The second has the #snapchat beauty filter. I try to love, embrace and accept myself everyday, filter or no filter, make up or no makeup, weave or no weave. Filters are fun but they are no substitute for me waking up, looking in the mirror and seeing the unfiltered me as beautiful and worthy of acceptance and love.

Laverne Cox continues to be the most poised and thoughtful celebrity around. And honestly, as a gossip blogger, I take that as a personal affront to my livelihood. But whatever!
