Alison Pill, Conan O'Brien


News flash! Accidentally tweeting a picture of one's breasts is a hard pill to swallow, but especially for Alison Pill.

Appearing on Conan Tuesday night, the 27-year-old Newsroom star was asked by Conan O'Brien about an "embarrassing technical snafu," which lo and behold, turned out to be a twitpic she mistakenly sent out to her 14,000-plus followers last September of her lying in bed topless!

"It's a fascinating story 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!'" said Pill, exhibiting the same kind of nervous energy as her character on the HBO series, Maggie Jordan.

The actress subsequently joked that her topless pic came with all the new BlackBerrys before confessing she actually took the shot for her then-fiancé, Jay Baruchel.

After the funnyman said he was mystified by the younger people on his staff and the whole tweeting-naked-pics thing, Pill admitted, "It was a dumb thing to do, I suppose."

Indeed, shortly after sending out the tweet, she quickly deleted it, but of course, this being the digital age, such mishaps live on in perpetuity online.

"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.' It's not even the case," Pill said.

We'd say she's learned her lesson.
