Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Rolling Stone cover is sure to get tongues wagging -- and not just because she's posing in the nude. In the place of clothing, Dreyfus is sporting some controversial new ink: the famous words of America's founding fathers.

Posing with the constitution makes sense for Dreyfus, who stars in HBO's wildly popular political satire 'Veep.' Dreyfus plays the foul-mouthed Vice President of the United States, Selina Meyer, who deals with the difficulties and disenfranchisement in her role as second-in-command.

Unfortunately, the genius PR move was compromised by a historical error. Dreyfus' tattoo is signed by John Hancock, who didn't actually sign the constitution. Dreyfus took the flub in a stride, placing the blame on fictional Veep character Mike McClintock. She tweeted, "Hancock signed Dec. of Independence NOT Constitution.Yet another Mike f—-up. Dummy."
