Airbrushing and A-listers go hand in hand, right?  We know that almost every magazine cover we see has been airbrushed or digitally enhanced in some form.


The thing is though, it's usually done a little more subtly than the latest star-studded cover of Vanity Fair

So, while the photoshopping process generally involves paring inches of a star's waist and thighs, the latest example is slightly off-course.


After posing for the cover of Vanity Fair, Reese Witherspoon and Oprah Winfrey realised they had been gifted some extra appendages.


Witherspoon has a third leg on the cover and inside, Winfrey seems to magically have a third hand.


And they weren't the only ones to notice either.


Vanity Fair said the appearance of Witherspoon's third leg was, in fact, "the lining of her dress" (which it really doesn't look like, tbh) but has removed the picture of Winfrey from its website - presumably to distract from the very real third-hand blunder. 



Taking to Twitter, members of the public questioned why Reese was sporting an extra leg on the cover and why Oprah was rocking an extra hand in a supposedly candid shot from the shoot.


"Im tryna figure out how many legs Reese Witherspoon's got in here, it’s been bothering me for the last five minutes," wrote one Twitter user who actually got a response from the Big Little Lies star.



And we have to hand it (sorry) to both stars for seeing the lighter side of the clear photoshop fail.


"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," Reese added.



Responding to Reese, Oprah replied: "I accept your third leg. As I know you accept my third hand."

Ladies, that's how to accept a possible digital alteration blunder with poise and grace.
