Alison Pill Of 'The Newsroom' Mistakenly Tweets Topless Photo
It seems that Alison Pill, 26, is just as clumsy with Twitter in real life as her character, Maggie Jordan, is with office furniture on HBO's The Newsroom, which also stars Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Olivia Munn and Sam Waterston. On Wednesday, Pill accidentally tweeted a topless photograph of herself, lounging back on a bed and wearing nothing but eyeglasses, to her 14,000 Twitter followers before promptly deleting it.

The pic had already spread across the twitterverse, however, when Pill, who is also known for her acclaimed roles in Midnight in Paris, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Milk and Dan in Real Life, scrambled to eradicate it. "Yep," Pill tweeted immediately after she took the topless pic down. "That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies."
Pill's followers, however — who have increased by about 2,000 since the incident — were nothing but supportive. "[A]t least you owned up to it and didn't blame it on 'a hack,'" said @ChuckReynolds. "No apologies needed btw."
At least one person seemed more amused than anything, however — Pill's fiance, Jay Baruchel, 30, of How to Train Your Dragon, She's Out of My League and Knocked Up. Baruchel re-tweeted his ladylove's apology along with his own Twitter message: "My fiancee is an hilarious dork. #imjustgladitdidn'thappentomefirst. Smartphones will get ya," he wrote.
HBO's The Newsroom, which has been renewed for a second season, will return in 2013.
