Awkward: Vanity Fair’s Hollywood cover accidentally gives stars extra limbs

WITH a glaring photoshop fail and one star scrapped at the last minute, Vanity Fair’s latest cover has got everyone talking — for all the wrong reasons.
PRESTIGIOUS magazine Vanity Fair has been left red-faced after the unveiling of its latest cover, featuring two monumental Photoshop fails and followed by news James Franco was scrubbed from the spread at the last minute.
The iconic “Hollywood” issue, which celebrates a number of industry heavyweights, has a slew of A-listers on its cover. Hours after its debut, multiple sources have come forward to reveal Franco — who was photographed for the cover and interviewed for the issue — was digitally removed from the image at the final moment after he became embroiled in sexual misconduct allegations.
A Vanity Fair spokesman confirmed the rumours to The Hollywood Reporter. “We made a decision not to include Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him,” the spokesman told the publication.
Allegations against the actor came just days after he won a Golden Globe earlier this month. Five women came forward in a Los Angeles Times story, alleging inappropriate behaviour by the star.
In their haste to remove Franco from the prestigious cover, it seems Vanity Fair editors were it too much of a flurry to notice some major errors.
The magazinewas also called out by readers for an embarrassing Photoshop fail on the cover. In the photo, it seems Reese Witherspoon has accidentally been given a third leg and Oprah Winfrey an extra hand.
The baffling mind trick is seen among Annie Leibovitz’s shots for the annual feature, which also includes Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Michael B. Jordan, Claire Foy, Jessica Chastain, Zendaya, Michael Shannon, Harrison Ford, Gal Gadot and Robert De Niro.
As expected, the cover oozes sophistication, style and glamour — and is marred only by the presence of Witherspoon’s extra leg.
As if that weren’t enough, the glaring errors continued inside the magazine, where an otherwise-stunning shot of Winfrey, Witherspoon and Hanks sharing a joke features the TV queen with an extra hand.
