Alison Pill Says Nude Topless Photo Gaffe Was 'Dumb,' 'Hideously Embarrassing'

Remember when "Newsroom" star Alison Pill accidentally tweeted a nude topless photo of herself to the whole, wide Internet? Well, apparently it all boiled down to a BlackBerry snafu.

The 27-year-old sat down with Conan O'Brien Tuesday night and O'Brien broached the subject of the naked selfie she tweeted last September. The talk show host didn't quite understand how someone could unwittingly tweet such a personal pic.

The photo in question was a topless snapshot of Pill, who was lying in a bed with nothing but a pair of oversized glasses on.

"It's a fascinating story involving not knowing that my new Blackberry had a touch screen and responding to somebody on Twitter," Pill explained of the topless gaffe, "Like, 'Oh yeah, New York was great. It's 9:30 on a Wednesday. Also, apropos of nothing, here are my boobs!'"

Apparently, Pill had the topless pic on her phone because she was away from her ex-fiance Jay Baruchel at the time.

"I don't know. It's a dumb thing to do I suppose," she continued. "And now, I've realized just how dumb. And so embarrassing, so hideously embarrassing, that for about three months after it happened I couldn't... every time I met a new person I [kept thinking], 'Boobs! Nice to meet you, you've seen my boobs.' It's not even the case."

Last year, after the indecent exposure incident, Pill quickly deleted the photo and fessed up to her mistake.

"Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet... Apologies," she tweeted.
