Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Rolling Stone Cover Sparks Controversy -- and Not Just Because She's Naked USA Today
Rolling Stone took the wraps off its new cover featuring a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and the photo sparked an immediate controversy, USA Today reports. But the fuss isn't so much about what the "Seinfeld" veteran and "Veep" star isn't wearing, but about what she has on her back.
The 53-year-old actress, who's billed on the cover as "The First Lady of Comedy," has a copy of the U.S. Constitution printed on her back, along with a "John Hancock" signature.
"Trouble is, John Hancock was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. No word on whether the signature was intentional or a mistake," USA Today reports.
The report adds: "It's arguable how many Americans are up on their history enough to spot the gaffe. But Philadelphia's National Constitution Center certainly is, and it wasted no time tweeting 'George Washington to @RollingStone -- Thanks for the shout out but no Hancock here...' and included a photo of the signers rendered in bronze."
The issue hits the stands Friday.
