A newspaper has been forced to apologize after an otherwise glowing interview with Hollywood star Julia Roberts was ruined by perhaps the world’s most unfortunate typo.
The Post-Journal in New York accidentally published a story on Julia Roberts' recent roles but made a glaring error that earned it global fame. Typos are a fact of life and happen to all of us, but every so often a typo occurs that you can't help but chuckle at.

The newspaper headline goes viral too fast and we all know what happens when people on the internet start having fun. The paper later published a correction, clarifying that they meant she was getting better ROLES instead of “HOLES”.
