According to several reports, James Franco was digitally removed from the cover of Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue. 

The removal comes after sexual misconduct claims were made against him by a group of actresses. 

Each year the magazine does a photoshoot with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, after the Oscar nominations. This year it made headlines over a major photoshop fail where some of the celebs were given extra limbs. You can check that out here.

According to the Daily Mail, Vanity Fair confirmed that he was deleted from the cover after it was learned that five women made sexual misconduct claims against him. 

When the cover was unveiled, it read '12 Extraordinary Stars, One Momentous Year.'

However, it has been confirmed that it was meant to feature a 13th star, James. 

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

Some of the pictures were taken as early as November. 

Earlier this week, James revealed that he was somewhat relieved that his movie The Disaster Artist was snubbed by the Oscars.
