You would think that an associate producer of a news program would know better, but apparently Alison Pill and her Newsroom character, Maggie, are not in fact the same person.
Pill posted a picture to her Twitter account earlier today that made some heads spin and jaws drop. It seems Pill didn't realize that her breasts were featured prominently and uncovered in the photo.
In the picture, Pill is earing oversized eyeglasses while lying on a bed. She quickly pulled the picture off the internet but, as we all know, if it touches the web, it's never really gone.
"Yep. That picture happened," Pill said afterward. "Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet... Apologies."
Actor Jay Baruchel, who happens to be Pill's fiance (lucky!) took to Twitter to discuss his lady's misfortune.
"My fiancee is an hilarious dork. #imustgladitdidnthappentomefirst," he tweeted.
In unsurprising news, Pill added about 2,000 new Twitter followers today. A censored version of the photo can be seen here. (Caution: If you're at work, maybe wait until you go home. Censored is not the same as safe for work.)
Didn't the Newsroom season end already? Someone should tell Pill you do this before or during the season, not after.
