AnnaLynne McCord, who plays snobby Naomi Clark on the CW teen drama series "90210," accidentally posted a topless photo of herself on Twitter.
The actress posted the photo of her wearing nothing but a necklace on January 5, with the message, "This is for you @meganraee You rock! Xxx A."
When fans alerted her to the fact that her nipple was exposed, she cropped it to a more modest version. The original photo still found its way back onto the internet though.
The intended recipient of the photo confirmed to the star that her re-posted photo was clean, writing, "yes it's gone!! I wasn't sure if you noticed it when you posted."
McCord, 23, laughed off the embarrassment, writing to the fan the photo was intended for and a British fan who joked that it was really meant for him, "Hahaha! Megan, you feel like sharing? Very funny I actually LOL-ed xxxA."
In July, McCord made headlines for her reported romance with the significantly older "Prison Break" actor Dominic Purcell, 41.
McCord and Purcell have not commented on the reports. The two are set to star together in the upcoming crime drama film "Officer Down" with David Boreanaz from the shows "Bones" and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer." The film also stars Stephen Dorff and James Woods and is set for release in 2012.
McCord previously dated "Twilight" actor Kellan Lutz, but the two broke up in November 2010. She told Us Weekly magazine that she looks for "a man" in her love interests.
"I look for a man, not a little boy," McCord told the weekly. "I like honesty and strength. I like confidence, and talent, and yeah, I'm really happy right now!"
MTV News' website posted a photo of McCord and Purcell kissing, saying the picture was taken in between takes of "90210." They are dressed and her legs are around his waist.
The fourth season of "90210" is set to premiere on Tuesday, January 17 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
