Catherine Zeta-Jones Sues French Cosmetics Company
Thursday, September 25, 2003

LOS ANGELES  — Has a French makeup company smeared Catherine Zeta-Jones (search)?

The actress filed a lawsuit Thursday in federal court that seeks $15 million from the cosmetics firm Caudalie for running an ad campaign that says the "Chicago" Oscar-winner "was spotted buying the complete Caudalie (search) range of skincare" and had used the company's anti-aging spa in Las Vegas.

Her lawsuit states that she has never purchased such products, nor did she receive services from the spa and claims the company had no right to use her name in promotions.

The star of "Entrapment" and the upcoming comedy "Intolerable Cruelty" has an exclusive deal to promote Elizabeth Arden (search) cosmetics.

In her lawsuit, Zeta-Jones also named as defendants the retailer Neiman Marcus Group Inc., for spreading the promos on its Web site, and the Turnberry Place condominiums, the location of Caudalie's Las Vegas spa.

Calls for comment placed to the Caudalie's United States operation in Dallas, Neiman Marcus headquarters and the Turnberry Place condominiums were not immediately returned.
