Misplaced Headings

I saw this ad on this morning. Is it me, or does Jodie Foster look like she has a five o'clock shadow?

I know you movie fans out there are saying, "no she doesn't." But I am talking about the names above the pictures. The first picture has Denzel Washington above it. Yep, got it right. The next picture (Jodie) has Clive Owen above it. Nope! And the last picture (Clive) has Jodie Foster above it. Again, it's wrong.

I see this sort of thing all the time in newspapers. Publishers are trying hard to use every inch of the page possible and a picture from one story ends up next to a headline of another. It makes for some funny headlines.
