The latest major Photoshop blunder comes from Vanity Fair, who have unveiled their new issue’s cover complete with Oprah Winfrey having three hands, and Reese Witherspoon sporting three legs.
The publication have just posted the images featuring on the cover and inside spread of their 24th annual Hollywood issue, but despite its A-list roster, they've found it’s garnering attention for all the wrong reasons. For, in one picture, Oprah is seen with one hand on her waist, her other on her lap, and a third wrapped around Reese Withersoon. In another picture, three legs can be counted emerging from Witherspoon’s dress.
Naturally, the errors have become the subject of much ridicule on Twitter. Joking about the photos, shot by Annie Leibovitz, one user wrote: “If you're struggling at work today, just remember that you aren't the person who let photos of Reese Witherspoon with three legs AND Oprah with three hands go to print.”
Witherspoon herself even made light of the mistake, tweeting “'Well...I guess everybody knows now...I have 3 legs. I hope you can still accept me for who I am.”
The publication also went on to reveal they had digitally removed James Franco from the spread, after allegations of sexual misconduct against the actor had emerged.
