Catherine Zeta-Jones

Wallace calls Zeta-Jones' lawsuit 'frivolous'

29.10.2004

A spokesman for a Nevada topless club being sued by Catherine Zeta-Jones said today the actress should be flattered the club used her image for advertising and promotion.

Jones is suing the Spice House, which bills itself as "Reno's friendliest topless cabaret", and its owner, Wesglow Resources, for displaying her picture on "numerous pages" of its website without her permission, according to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles.

A designer for the club's website downloaded pictures of Zeta-Jones from a German website that offered "royalty-free graphics", said Kent Wallace, the club's marketing director.

"It was an image of a beautiful woman," Wallace said. "We had no idea it was Catherine Zeta-Jones; one wouldn't think [her image] would appear in a free graphics website. She should have been flattered," Wallace said.

The club immediately took down Zeta-Jones' images when it was contacted by her attorney. Wallace called the lawsuit "frivolous".
