Major Vanity Fair photoshop fail; Oprah Winfrey sprouted an arm and Reese Witherspoon has three legs

Well that’s not so professional, Vanity Fair. Ever heard of proofing your work??? Oh, I know— kettle… black… I make mistakes all of the time, but I’m not Vanity Fair. Anyway, according to this:

Vanity Fair’s cover shoot starring Oprah Winfrey went from a star-studded event to a Photoshop fail after the publication accidentally gave the icon three hands.

For the magazine’s 24th annual ‘Hollywood’ issue, Oprah, 63, posed for renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz, alongside A-list stars such as Robert De Niro and Nicole Kidman, with Reese Witherspoon sitting on her lap.

Although the pictures are undoubtedly stunning, there appears to be not one but two major Photoshopping mistakes that went unnoticed before publication.

In one of the images, Oprah has a hand on her hip, a hand on her lap, and then a third hand wrapped around Reese’s waist.

The two appear to be laughing at something Tom Hanks said, and while Oprah’s hands are firmly in front of her, four of her fingers are hugging her A Wrinkle in Time co-star’s side.

The mistake prompted people to poke fun of the magazine on Twitter, joking that the superstar does indeed have three hands.

‘Listen Oprah might have three hands,’ Jason Abbruzzese wrote, while Steve Bayorgeon added: ‘Everyone knows Oprah has three hands.’

Three may be Vanity Fair’s lucky number, as people also took to Twitter on Thursday to point out that it looks like 41-year-old Reese has three legs on the cover.

‘I do wonder about Reese’s 3 legs?’ someone named Nichole wrote. ‘Her flesh is not the same color as the inside of her dress.’

‘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,’ Christine Jackson joked.

Meanwhile, someone named Zoe credited Reese’s third leg for her success.

Reese Witherspoon chimed in too:

Hey, at least Reese has a great sense of humor about the whole thing. What else could you do, but laugh. Right? 

The pictures are beautiful and the photoshopping is actually pretty natural and professional looking… Maybe it’s possible that whoever issued the final images HAD to be f*cking with them??? Just a thought. Regardless of the obvious fail, the pictures were still awesome.
