LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The cover image of next month’s Rolling Stone magazine featuring the “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus depicts a nude Louis-Dreyfus with a tattoo of the U.S. Constitution featuring John Hancock’s famous signature across her back. The problem: Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.

Louis-Dreyfus’ jokingly blamed the blunder in a Twitter post on Wednesday on the fictional “Veep” character who serves as communications director to Louis-Dreyfus’ Vice-President Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy series.

Rolling Stone spokeswoman Melissa Bruno said the Declaration of Independence is on the other side of her body, but the signatures wouldn’t fit.

Inside the magazine, another image shows a man in a colonial wig tattooing Hancock’s signature above the bare bottom of the “Seinfeld” actress.
