Nicole Kidman graced the cover of Vanity Fair’s 28th edition of their annual Hollywood issue but soon got in the wrong books of the internet after social media users noticed how badly her cover picture was photoshopped. Chaos ensued on Twitter as many dragged the magazine for their latest stunt that also features other top actors like Andrew Garfield, Idris Elba, Kristen Stewart, Simu Liu, Benedict Cumberbatch, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, and Penélope Cruz.
 
Nicole Kidman, who is nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her role as Lucille Ball in ‘Being The Ricardos’, quickly reserved one of the top spots on the trending list as she was brutally mocked by the internet. On the cover, Kidman can be seen donning a skimpy outfit which further irked social media users. In her latest interview with Vanity Fair, the 54-year-old actress shed light on her health issues saying she often fooled her immune system into thinking her character's suffering was real, only to fall ill after filming.

Heat over photoshopped magazine cover

On the cover, Kidman can be seen wearing a revealing outfit from Miu Miu’s Spring 2022 collection. The award-winning actress went for a black and grey ensemble while flaunting her skinny waist and toned legs, finishing the look with grey knee socks and pointy-toed loafers. Whilst sharing the same, the ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ actress captioned the post as, “Honored to join my fellow actors on @VanityFair’s 28th Annual Hollywood Issue #BeingTheRicardos.”
 
According to ABC News, Hollywood A-lister Jennifer Aniston had written a powerful blog in 2016 against years of tabloid scrutiny of her figure and persistent pregnancy rumors. "The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing, said the ‘Friends’ star. She added, “We use celebrity 'news' to perpetuate this dehumanising view of females, focused solely on one's physical appearance, which tabloids turn into a sporting event of speculation."

‘Someone went a little bonkers with the retouching paintbrush’

Furious over Kidman’s photoshopped cover, one of the users stated, “This cover is an insult to the gorgeous Nicole Kidman and everyone over 40. And graphic designers. And photoshop artists. And fashion designers. No good choice was involved with this beyond selecting Kidman. WTAF is wrong with you?” Another joked,” What the hell happened to her arm lol.” Whereas, one chimed in, “That's not how she looks.. Photoshop..and it's not how other 40+ women look. And that's okay.” Another asked, “Why Vanity Fair? You say women can look great at any age,  yet you infantilize them.  And the photoshop is so sloppy.  When did the standards drop so low?”
 
The next one tweeted, “Nicole Kidman does not look like this. Why do we do this s**t? Infuriating how we simply do not accept how people actually look like rather than what bloody sells. Poor sell Nicole.” Meanwhile, another shared, “One of the WORSE VF covers ever! Whew! I’m glad I dropped my subscription after 40 years. What a downfall for a once great magazine. Apparently you and Vogue are having a race to the bottom.” One individual shared, “What is this?! Seriously. Someone went a little bonkers with the retouching paintbrush. She's in her 50s. Let her look like it. Geez.” Another user concluded, “How does anyone in this day and age think this cover with all of its editing and photoshopping is ok. Shame on Vanity Fair and Nicole for perpetuating this harmful outdated practice.”
