In one image, Oprah Winfrey, 63, appears with a hand on her hip, a hand on her lap, and then a third hand wrapped around Reese's waist:
Now that Oprah has been exposed as an alien with three hands, her prospective presidential candidacy takes on more sinister overtones: pic.twitter.com/ZzP3GDza7x- (((Yair Rosenberg))) (@Yair_Rosenberg) January 25, 2018
Meanwhile, Big Little Lies star Reese Witherspoon, in a different photograph, appears to have three legs:

The bad Photoshop job led to a lot of jokes on Twitter, with many asking whether they are aliens and others joking about loving your bodies, no matter what.

If you're struggling at work today, just remember that you aren't the person who let photos of Reese Witherspoon with three legs AND Oprah with three hands go to print.- Christine Jackson (@Cjax1694) January 25, 2018
Fortunately, both the stars joined in on the joke:
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;) https://t.co/6GyrfWxNSY- Reese Witherspoon (@RWitherspoon) January 25, 2018
I accept your 3d leg. As I know you accept my 3d hand- Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) January 25, 2018
Vanity Fair, meanwhile, has admitted it erred when it came to Oprah's three hands. In a light-hearted tweet posted on January 25, the magazine said it is correcting the error online.
As for Reese Witherspoon - Vanity Fair has claimed it is just the lining of her dress. This is an explanation that not many are buying.
NO, it's NOT the lining of her dress. IT IS CLEARLY HER LEG. You can see her knee. Nice try though.- olbs (@iblok1) January 27, 2018
JUST ADMIT YOU PHOTOSHOP EVERYTHING and aren't good at it and move on.
The errors came to light only a few hours after the magazine announced that it had digitally erased images of James Franco from the photoshoot following allegations of sexual misconduct.
