Alison Pill, a star in HBO’s “The Newsroom,” mistakenly tweeted a topless picture of herself to her more than 14,000 Twitter followers.
Pill, who plays a clumsy producer on the HBO series, immediately deleted the photo and tweeted, “Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies. ”
The photo showed the 26-year-old actress sprawled in bed with a grin on her face donning thick-framed glasses. Unfortunately for Pill, nothing is ever permanently deleted from the Internet.
Pill’s fiancée, actor Jay Baruchel, found the gaffe amusing tweeting, “My fiancee is an hilarious dork.” Later he tweeted, “Smartphones will get ya.”
Oddly enough, a storyline in the second episode of “The Newsroom” featured a not so tech savvy producer sending a personal email to everyone in the news division by mistake.
