Famed ac­tress sues over ‘Feud’ de­pic­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
