A New York-based newspaper made an unfortunate typo in a story about Julia Roberts. The headline read, "Julia Roberts Finds Life And Her Holes Get Better With Age". The word 'holes' was supposed to be 'roles'. Several people online spotted the error and tweeted about it.

The newspaper - The Post-Journal - has since apologised for the error, but not before it became the butt of all jokes on the internet. The original story was picked up by the newspaper from the Associated Press. "A headline on Page D4 in Saturday's Post-Journal should have read 'Julia Roberts Finds Life and Her Roles Get Better With Age,'" the paper wrote in its apology, published in a later edition.


"This is why she's a movie star. My holes have only gotten worse with age," wrote actor Busy Phillipps on Twitter. "I like to think all of our holes are getting better with age. Also, copyediting is important," wrote Eric Spitznagel of the New York Times Magazine.

Here's what has been buzzing on the internet since the newspaper circulated its ill-fated issue:
