Spell check isn’t always your friend — more like a casual acquaintance.

Just look at what happened to the Post-Journal‘s  stunning headline for an AP story they picked up this weekend about Julia Roberts. 

It’s very possible the editor used spell check. Unfortunately for the paper, the function doesn’t always pick up on errors like this one:

Clearly the headline meant to read “roles” not “holes.” For the record, however, I’m happy for Roberts either way. Holes do tend to decline with age, kudos to anyone who’s able to reverse the cycle. 

Here’s what the Post-Journal had to say about it:

“A headline on Page D4 in Saturday’s Post-Journal should have read ‘Julia Roberts Finds Life And Her Roles Get Better With Age.'”

More importantly, here’s what Twitter had to say:

The error appears to have been confined to print and is not available on site. We reached out to the Post-Journal for comment and will update you when we learn more.

Congratulations to Julia either way.
