Reese Witherspoon Appears to Have 3 Legs on the New Vanity Fair Cover, and We Have Questions

Update: On Thursday, Vanity Fair clarified that, unfortunately, Reese Witherspoon does not have three legs. "While we would have loved the exclusive on [Reese's] three legs, unfortunately it's just the lining of her dress," the publication tweeted. As for Oprah's three arms? The outlet admitted to the editing error and tweeted that it would be corrected. Until then, read Reese and Oprah's hilarious responses to the three-legged controversy ahead.

Original story: Reese Witherspoon is one of the A-list stars featured on the cover of Vanity Fair's 2018 Hollywood Issue, joining powerhouse talent like Oprah Winfrey, Michael B. Jordan, Harrison Ford, and Gal Gadot. While the actress looks stunning in the portrait — which was shot by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz — she also seems to have something . . . extra. On a second glance at the cover, it sort of looks like Reese has three legs. You can see one through the slit in her gown, then two that are crossed to the left. It's all a little much. Here's a closer look.

And to make matters even weirder, there's a behind-the-scenes shot in Vanity Fair's article in which Oprah has three hands! Is this some sort of conspiracy? Can someone please explain these disrespectful Photoshop disasters?
