Just when she got rid of a crazed stalker, Uma Thurman once again finds herself back in court.
The actress sued cosmetic giant Lancôme on Friday for $15 million dollars for continuing to use her image in advertising on Canadian billboards and Asian websites even though her contract had expired. Apparently, her contract expired in 2004.
But wait! There's more.
Lancôme actually sued Uma first. Um huh. Last Wednesday, the company sued her because she had threatened to sue them. We know. What are we like in the fifth grade? Anyways, since Lancôme struck first, their lawyers say their suit will take priority in court.
Moral of the story: In the event that you ever become famous, don't agree to partake in an ill-advised foreign ad campaign.
