Hello! wins appeal against Zeta-Jones

18may05

HELLO! magazine today won an appeal against a ruling that it should pay rival OK! more than £1 million ($2.43 million) for publishing unauthorised photographs of the Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas wedding.

Master of the Rolls, Lord Philips, ruled that Hello!'s publication of the unofficial photographs had not breached OK!'s commercial rights.

Philips also dismissed an appeal by the celebrity couple for an increase in the £14,600 they were awarded by the High Court for breach of privacy.

Hello! printed surreptitious pictures of the pair's November 2000 nuptials while official shots appeared in OK!, which had signed a £1 million deal with the couple.

During the initial court case at which the showbiz couple gave evidence, Zeta-Jones said she considered the Hello! pictures "sleazy".


British newspapers revelled in mocking Zeta-Jones's complaints that the unauthorised photos were unflattering because they showed her eating.

One headline called the Oscar winner "Catherine Eater-Jones".
