A fashion magazine, InStyle, is at the receiving end of heavy criticism for allegedly photoshopping Reese Witherspoon in its new cover photo. The US magazine revealed the cover photo for its December/January 2022 issue on Instagram. Although the 'Wild' actress looked sultry in the image, it didn't go down well with many fans, who asserted that the 45-year-old actor looked much younger than her age. Some even claimed she looked entirely different.

"Oh heyyyyy @instylemagazine!

While many fans appreciated her look, a huge chunk of followers did point out the apparent 'photoshopped' actress. In fact, many of Resee's fans confused her with the American Singer Marren Morris. One Instagram user said, " You look beautiful but you didn't need the Photoshop.The best part of you is how you are fabulous at ANY age( and you just keep getting better)." Another user commented, "You look gorgeous!  But this cover too much photoshop ABSOLUTELY no need for that". One fan exclaimed, "that's a lot of photoshop."

Another disappointed fan commented that Reese is an accomplished and beautiful person, she wondered why would she agree to such a "horribly photoshopped image."

However, defending the attack on the cover image, Laura Brown, wrote: "Hey team, for those commenting on retouching, the brief was super sexy, a heavy eye and big hair. You rarely see Reese like this - which was the point. We are not in the business of embalming women at @instylemagazine. Feel free to look at Reese's in-human-form video post, following. All the best, L"
