This photoshop mishap is every magazine’s worst nightmare!

January 31st, 2018

Especially if you happen to be a very popular magazine.

People make mistakes — that comes without a surprise. But even though we still make mistakes — in life, in love, and in art— we try to keep it at a minimum. And as much as possible, no mistake at all. Or if we do have an uncalled for mishap, we all hope we’ll be able to rectify it just in time. Especially when we’re working on something that’s very important like an annual special edition magazine issue, for example.

Vanity Fair’s much-anticipated Hollywood issue just experienced its worst nightmare to date. It’s star-studded cover photo revealed that actress Reese Witherspoon has three legs.

And of course, people noticed! One user even posted on Twitter saying that she’s trying to figure out whether the actress really have three legs in the photo.

Vanity Fair was quick to address the issue by stating that what they thought was her third leg was in fact just the lining of her dress…

While we would have loved the exclusive on @RWitherspoon's three legs, unfortunately it's just the lining of her dress. https://t.co/HJjvbc037S

But sorry Vanity Fair, people aren’t buying it!

Her flesh is not the same color as the inside of her dress. pic.twitter.com/xW6343LpVW

You guys. It’s not the lining.

The lining of the dress appears to have a knee 😂

That is definitely not the lining of her dress 🙄

But it wasn’t enough for Witherspoon to have three legs because it turns out, Oprah Winfrey has three hands as well!

It’s a good thing though, that Witherspoon is such a sport and told her fans to still accept her even though she has three legs…

Well…I guess everybody knows now…I have 3 legs. I hope you can still accept me for who I am. 😃( and I will never apologize for snuggling @Oprah .. if you get the opportunity, I highly recommend it;) https://t.co/6GyrfWxNSY

…and so did Oprah!

I accept your 3d leg. As I know you accept my 3d hand👋🏾👋🏾👋🏾❤️

— Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) January 25, 2018

Don’t worry guys, we still accept you even though you have extra limbs!

oprah has three hands & reese has three legs, and we are here for accepting them for who they are!! 2018 is all about LOVING OUR BODIES!! pic.twitter.com/TX7L2JIDno

But perhaps, Vanity Fair should heed this advice?

Seriously just fire whoever was in charge of photoshopping this shoot. Atrocious.
