Famed actress sues over ‘Feud’ depiction
LOS ANGELES — Hollywood great Olivia de Havilland is launching her own sequel to the TV series “Feud” — a lawsuit.
The double Oscar-winning actress sued FX Networks and producer Ryan Murphy’s company, alleging unauthorized and false use of her name and invasion of privacy.
The suit was filed in Los Angeles on Friday — one day before de Havilland turns 101. The actress, whose credits include the role of Melanie Hamilton in “Gone with the Wind,” lives in Paris. De Havilland’s suit alleges “Feud” used her name and identity without permission. The suit also claims the series inaccurately depicted her as a gossip, contrary to her behaviour and reputation.
