James Franco removed from Vanity Fair cover following sexual misconduct allegations

This year's star-studded Vanity Fair Hollywood cover features some of entertainment's biggest names - and a Photoshop fail (Vanity Fair). "I have three legs", she wrote.

Naturally, the errors have become the subject of much ridicule on Twitter. Upon the release of the cover, many expressed on Twitter that they thought it looked as though Witherspoon had three legs. "I guess everybody knows now.I have 3 legs".

James Franco was supposed to be one of the "12 Extraordinary Stars", but was removed from the photo shoot due to the sexual harassment allegations against him.

Responding to Reese, Oprah replied: "I accept your third leg".

In another picture from the shoot, Oprah is seen holding Witherspoon by the waist as the pair laugh with Tom Hanks.

In a move that has outed the publication's editing tactics, the stars have been given what appear to be extra body parts in the striking front cover.

Vanity Fair has since conceded that Oprah's extra hand was a mistake, but said the extra leg was simply the lining from inside Reece's dress.

Though Franco was originally included in the group shot, in wake of sexual misconduct accusations against the actor from five women Vanity Fair made the decision to digitally erase him from the final cut.

Franco had posed for the cover and was given an interview for the magazine.

The 39-year-old was interviewed and sat for photographer Annie Leibovitz for the star-studded cover, but the magazine made a decision to not include him after five women accused him of sexual misconduct in the Los Angeles Times. "It's a good thing and I support it", he said. "So I don't want to shut them down in any way", Franco stated.
