LOS ANGELES, Sept. 25 (Xinhuanet) -- US Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones
has sued a French cosmetics company for using her name for product promotion,
Hollywood media reported on Thursday.
Zeta-Jones, who won an Oscar for best supporting actress this year for
her role in "Chicago," filed a lawsuit against Caudalie for running an ad
campaign that claims she "was spotted buying the complete Caudalie range of
skincare" and had patronized the company's anti-aging spa in Las Vegas.
The Hollywood star denied that she has bought any such products, nor did
she receive services from the alleged spa. She was seeking 15 million US dollars
A similar lawsuit alleging unauthorized use of celebrities in advertising
was filed last year against cosmetics chain Sephora USA by couple Mattew
Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker and the divorced couple Nicole Kidman and Tom
