Actress Alison Pil stopped by “Conan” on Sept. 3, 2013 to talk about her HBO drama “Newsroom” and her personal drama of accidentally sending a topless picture of herself across the twitter-verse. The twitpic incident happened last year when Pil, engaged at the time to funny man Jay Baruchel, inadvertently sent the topless picture to her twitter followers because she didn't know how to use her Blackberry.
Host Conan O'Brien joked with Pil that he doesn't understand how all young people have naked pictures of themselves on their phones. He goes on to say, “There's no pictures of me naked. My doctor hasn't seen me naked.”
Pil is adorable and charming as she laughs at her own misfortune. She explains how she felt after the incident. “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.”
Alison Pil has appeared in films such as “Midnight in Paris,” “Milk” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” She can be seen on HBO Sunday nights in “Newsroom,” which officially got picked up for a third season.
