James Franco photoshopped out of Vanity Fair cover after sexual misconduct allegations

by Staff writer



When Vanity Fair magazine unveiled the cover for its highly anticipated annual Hollywood issue on Thursday, many took note of the fact that Reese Witherspoon appeared to have three legs due to what some have called a “photoshop fail”.


The cover which includes an array of celebrities ranging from Oprah Winfrey to Michael B. Jordan to Tom Hanks was captioned: “12 Extraordinary Stars, One Momentous Year!”

It was originally set to feature 13 celebrities, but at the last minute, the magazine chose to digitally remove actor James Franco from the spread.



James Franco sat for the photo shoot conducted by Annie Leibovitz, but eventually didn't make it to the released cover.

“We made a decision not to include James Franco on the Hollywood cover once we learned of the misconduct allegations against him,” a Vanity Fair spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter.

At least five women have accused Franco of sexual misconduct.

Several sources told the Hollywood Reporter that Franco sat for the photo shoot conducted by Annie Leibovitz, but eventually didn't make it to the released cover.

The celebrities for the cover were shot in small groups and the images later combined digitally into a larger image, meaning the decision to remove Franco did not require a re-shoot.
