Forum Members React to Vanity Fair’s Overly Photoshopped Hollywood 2018 Cover

Vanity Fair may not be our go-to choice at the newsstand every month, having failed to hit the spot on more than one occasion recently. Nevertheless, our forum members always anticipate the magazine’s annual ‘Hollywood Issue‘. Amidst the ongoing #TimesUp movement, prominent Hollywood figures Oprah, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks, Michael B. Jordan, Zendaya, Claire Foy, Jessica Chastain, Michael Shannon, Harrison Ford, Gal Gadot, Robert De Niro, James Franco and the magazine’s very own Graydon Carter (seriously) make up the thirteen cover stars, Photoshopped, er,  photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

After checking out the cover, our eagle-eyed forum members had some serious questions. “Glad they Photoshopped Nicole back to 10 years ago when she still looked amazing,” snarked chanelh at once.

“Holy s**t, I was sure it was Naomi Watts. What did they do to Nicole?” asked Melancholybaby.

“I wonder what it is Nicole is leaning on. Definitely not Oprah’s leg,” pointed out anlabe32.

LastNight also wasn’t here for the unforgivable blunders. “Once you notice Reese’s third leg on the cover, you’ll never be able to unsee it – even if it is just a weird shadow on the dress (please say it is!),” he commented.

“My god, Annie is such a disgrace!! Even her behind the scenes photos are so badly done!” scolded Miss Dalloway.

Sharing the same sentiments was happycanadian: “I want to like this – but it’s just so poorly executed I can’t get on board. Reese’s third leg on the cover. Nicole looking like Naomi Watts. The way they did Oprah wrong with the makeup and lighting. The Photoshop being so evident and poorly done.”

“So brave of VF to include a three-legged actress on the cover,” mocked forum member t-rex.
