Nearly one year after accidentally tweeting a topless photo of herself, Newsroom actress Alison Pill is reliving the horrific technological flub in an interview with Conan.
The incident occurred last September, when Pill tweeted a topless photo of herself wearing nothing but a pair of thick-rimmed glasses. The now-27-year-old actress didn’t attempt to deny the photo, after deleting it she tweeted, “Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet... Apologies.”
Pill sat down with Conan when the embarrassing topic resurfaced.
“I'm still trying to understand what happened," Conan pressed as quoted by Us Weekly.
"It's a fascinating story," Pill began, "involving not knowing that my new BlackBerry had a touch screen and responding to somebody on Twitter like, 'Oh yeah, New York was great, it's 9:30 on a Wednesday, also, apropos of nothing, here are my boobs!'"
Pill explained that she had the photo on her phone after speaking to then fiancé Jay Baruchel, the couple had been apart due to filming, but would not divulge any further details. She did, however, continue noting that that single experience was one of the most embarrassing moments of her life.
“It's a dumb thing to do, I suppose," Pill notes. "And now I realize just how dumb and so embarrassing, so hideously embarrassing that for about three months after it happened … anytime I met a new person I [kept thinking], 'Boobs! Nice to meet you, you've seen my boobs.'"
