When Julia Roberts was selected as People‘s Most Beautiful Woman, she made history because of her age.
Now, people are talking about her age — she is 51 years old — for a very different reason.
See, the Post-Journal of Jamestown, New York ran a feature on Roberts and her recent “career renaissance.”
Unfortunately, the headline made a bit of a typo.
“Julia Roberts Finds Life And Her Holes Get Better With Age,” the paper reads.
Typos can happen to anyone, and the paper issued a retraction … but not before the eye-popping headline went viral.
Take a look:
Now, typos can happen to absolutely anyone. They happen in text messages, in essays, in articles, and yes, in headlines. This one is just … especially unfortunate. Also, it’s hilarious.
2. They did run a correction
That is all kinds of awkward but, in print media, you can’t just edit something and pray that nobody screenshotted it.
3. Take a closer look
Julia Roberts’ ROLES are getting better with age. Her orifices are her business.
4. But the correction came too late
The image had already gone viral and continues to be a topic of discussion
5. Sometimes, popular stories collide
The choice for Oscars host is always difficult and rarely satisfactory. Unless Julia Roberts’ holes are homophobic, which we have to assume that they are not, this suggestion sounds fine.
6. Some found the headline inspirational
Are we detecting an “Eat, Pray, Love” sequel?
