Hilary Swank Files Lawsuit Over 'Unauthorized' Photos
Hilary Swank is suing an electronics company after bosses allegedly used her photos in unauthorized advertisements.
The Million Dollar Baby star has filed suit against Robert's Home Audio and Video, alleging her name and image were used in promotional materials for the Los Angeles-based firm.
Swank's complaint, filed in L.A. on May 10th, reads, "Defendants did not ask for or receive Ms. Swank's permission to use her photograph, identity or persona in the advertisements or otherwise to associate with Defendants' companies or to market Defendants' commercial products or services."
The actress is demanding unspecified damages, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Her suit follows a similar complaint filed last month by George Clooney and Julia Roberts, who accused the owners of an audiovisual firm of using their names and likeness to promote their products.
