He said Whitney had gone home and that was her body double. It worked because her face was buried in his neck so you couldn’t see her face.

The movie company didn’t like it because you couldn’t see her face and tried to superimpose Whitney’s face into the photo but Kevin rejected it.

He also picked the photo because his friend was the photographer.
