Oscar winner Zeta-Jones sues French cosmetics company

  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 in compensation.

  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 Cruise. Enditem
