On the upcoming cover of Vanity Fair, both Reese Witherspoon and Oprah Winfrey appear to have extra body parts. Twitter blew up on Thursday night after the cover went public, showing Reese Witherspoon, 41, with her legs crossed and what appeared to be a third leg behind the pair. Witherspoon, The Big Little Lies actress, appears on the cover of Vanity Fair 2018 Hollywood Issue, released on Thursday.
After the cover was out, one fan noted that it looks like Reese has more than two legs in the cover photo.However, Vanity Fair noted that the “third leg” wasn’t a Photoshop fail, but rather the lining of her dress giving off the illusion of a third limb.”im tryna figure out how many legs reese witherspoon’s got in here, it’s been bothering me for the last five minutes,” Twitter user @leiascaptain wrote.
Vanity Fair released its annual Hollywood issue and in the cover photo, Reese appears along with Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, Claire Foy, Michael Shannon, Harrison Ford, Gal Gadot ,Tom Hanks, Zendaya, Michael B. Jordan, Jessica Chastain and Robert De Niro.
Another Twitter user also noticed that it appears that Oprah has three hands in another photo from the cover shoot. “Oprah has 3 hands in this photo. THREE HANDS. Reese: 3 legs. Oprah 3: hands,” @tnwhiskeywoman tweeted on Thursday.He also posted a photo that showed one of Oprah’s hands on her hip, one in front of her and the third hand around Reese’s waist.
Oprah did appear to have three hands in the cover shoot — an error Vanity Fair didn’t provide as good of an excuse. A tweet from the Vanity Fair main account said
“As for @Oprah, how can we expect her to juggle it all with just two hands?¯\_(?)_/¯_/¯ (We are correcting this error? online?.)”
Both of the actresses poked fun at the reactions to the image.
Oprah responded to Witherspoon writing:
“I accept your 3d leg. As I know you accept my 3d hand.”
Social media users were quick to react to the “fails.” Some believing that Witherspoon was actually Photoshopped to have a third leg.”Really bizarre that somebody had the guts to make Reese Witherspoon appear to have a third leg and Oprah have a third hand… Whoever did this deserves to be in a lot of trouble!” one user said seeming to be serious.Another jokingly shared the image, writing “Retweet this picture of Oprah with 3 hands or you’ll have a decade of bad luck.”
A third social media user posed the question: “Would you rather: be Oprah and have three hands or Reese Witherspoon and have three legs ”
Not everyone first noticed Oprah’s third hand, but Witherspoon’s third leg was quick to catch.
