ZETA SUES OVER SKINCARE
Welsh beauty Catherine Zeta Jones is suing a French cosmetics company for nearly 12m, according to reports.

The Hollywood actress is furious that the company allegedly claimed she and husband Michael Douglas used its products.

Catherine filed the lawsuit on Thursday in a US court against the Caudalie firm.

She says the company ran an advertising campaign claiming she "was spotted buying the complete Caudalie range of skincare" and had used the company's anti-aging spa in Las Vegas.

The Oscar winner's case 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 cosmetics.

In her lawsuit, Catherine 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.

Caudalie's United States operation in Dallas, Neiman Marcus headquarters and the Turnberry Place condominiums have not yet commented.
