Oscar-winning actor Julia Roberts found herself in the midst of intense social media discussions after a newspaper posted an embarrassing headline of its interview with her. The newspaper in question, The Post-Journal, carried an interview with Roberts with a headline that read, “Julia Roberts Finds Life And Her Holes Get Better With Age.”
No sooner the newspaper into circulation, its clipping went viral as users across the globe began to post the page on social media by highlighting the embarrassing typo. While some found the headline funny, others urged the newspaper to ‘sack’ the copy editors.
It was, however, not clear whether the use of ‘holes’ was a fallout of spellcheck or indeed a typo. But the headline left social media users in splits.

I feel this title about Julia Roberts and Holes perhaps needs a little finessing pic.twitter.com/z2o7EmJKbk

Faced with international reactions, the newspaper soon issued a correction. It said that the headline should have read ‘Julia Roberts Finds Life And Her Roles Get Better With Age.’ The newspaper had made its report based on an interview with Roberts by news agency AP. “With age comes more complexity of possible parts,” Roberts had told the Associated Press in her interview, which the newspaper had published.
Julia Roberts is indeed getting better with her age as she recently earned plaudits for her performance in Amazon’s psychological thriller, Homecoming, which was also nominated at the Golden Globes. The Pretty Woman actress also starred in the drama, Ben is Back.
