YIKES! Everyone’s Talking About Vanity Fair’s Photoshopping Fail

There are extra arms and legs everywhere.

Vanity Fair cover shot by Annie Leibovitz exclusively for Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair has released its annual issue with some of our favourite Hollywood stars on the cover, however this year it has people talking for the wrong reasons.

The cover, featuring stars such as Claire Foy, Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hanks, Robert De Niro and Harrison Ford has sent the internet into a frenzy for a number of reasons.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, James Franco was originally supposed to appear on the cover and was axed after the recent sexual assault claims were made against him. A Vanity Fair spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that they “made a decision not to include James Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him.”

Fans have noticed some strange obscurities in a number of shots from the issue, one being Reese Witherspoon’s apparent third leg and Oprah Winfrey’s extra hand. 

Reese and Oprah have made light of the unfortunate situation on Twitter, posting the following tweets.

The writer of the cover’s accompanying article, James Wolcott, said: “the films and TV shows represented by the actors in this year’s Hollywood Portfolio—which for the first time offers a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot—took the #MeToo movement in stride, offering strong women in leading roles, as well as strong men supporting them.”
