After Twitter users poked fun of the phenomenon, Witherspoon decided to play along.

"Well, I guess everybody knows now," she tweeted. "I have 3 legs. I hope you can still accept me for who I am." She added, "I will never apologize for snuggling" Winfrey.

Winfrey played along. "I accept your 3d leg. As I know you accept my 3d hand," she tweeted, acknowledging what appeared to be a third hand belonging to her in a separate photo in the Vanity Fair package.

What did Vanity Fair have to say about the hot mess? USA TODAY reached out and was referred to the magazine's own tweets in response.

About Witherspoon's extra limb, VF said, "While we would have loved the exclusive on @RWitherspoon's three legs, unfortunately it's just the lining of her dress."

And about Winfrey's third hand? Here's what the magazine tweeted: "As for @Oprah, how can we expect her to juggle it all with just two hands? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯_/¯ (We are correcting this error online.)"
