The Internet freaked out this week when Vanity Fair released their latest issue and it looked like Oprah Winfrey had a third hand.
Folks were coming up with loads of conspiracies as to why the media mogul had three arms and why Reese Witherspoon had a third leg in one of the photos from the famous spread. Now, less than 24 hours, the mystery has been solved.
According to the publication, James Franco was digitally removed from the photos following the string of sexual misconduct allegations. “We made a decision not to include James Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him,” a spokesperson from VF told The Hollywood Reporter.
Winfrey and Reese, meanwhile, are both getting a kick out of the bizarre photos. “I accept your 3rd leg. As I know you accept my 3rd hand,” Oprah tweeted in response to Reese’s “love you” post.
The cover, which was for the magazine’s annual Hollywood issue, features Tom Hands, Jessica Chasten, Nicole Kidman, Gal Gadot, Harrison Ford, Michael B. Jordan, Zendaya and Robert De Niro.
Months after Harvey Weistein’s Hollywood bombshell opened the door for other women to come out, five alleged vcitims and acting students of Franco’s accused him of sexual misconduct.
