The magazine released a much anticipated special issue of Hollywood Portfolio. Vanity Fair titled the post as follows.

12 extraordinary stars, one very momentous year—the 2018 Hollywood portfolio is here. In the quarter-century since Vanity Fair launched the Hollywood Issue, show business has changed in fundamental ways, as have magazines—but a star-studded, foldout cover remains a surefire thrill. Get a closer look at the cover, also featuring our very own Graydon Carter, at the link in bio. Photograph by Annie Leibovitz.
According to the sources, James Franco was part of the shoot. The Disaster Artist actor gave an exclusive interview and posed for photographer, Annie Leibovitz.
Franco is under scrutiny from every perceptive. He just got snubbed from an Oscar nominations. Scarlett Johansson, demanded the Times up Pin back from him. And now he has been scrubbed out of existence from a Magazine cover.
It all came in the wake of 5 Women accusing the actor for Sexual Harassment in a report by Los Angeles Times. Franco has denied the claims.
A Vanity Fair spokesperson told The Hollywood Reported
“We made a decision not to include James Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him,”
When a Twiterati discovered that Reese Witherspoon has three legs in cover picture, the Big Little Lies actress took it in good humor.
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
