You don't mess with Lindsay's likeness!

As we mentioned yesterday, Lindsay Lohan Lydia Hearst is set to star in an upcoming movie Dogs in Pocketbooks, which is quite obviously based on LiLo's life.

Hearst is set to play "a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media."

As a result, Team LiLo is considering pursuing legal action against the film's producers.

Here's what Dina Lohan had to say about the potential lawsuit:

"[The new movie] is definitely based on Lindsay's likeness. We have a very strong case. It's shadowing E*TRADE" — referring to Lohan's suit against the online brokerage firm which produced a commercial featuring a baby Lindsay."

Lohan family lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, continued:

"They are again using her likeness without her being compensated. Not only that but they are advertising the fact that they are using her likeness."

Looks like they've got a case here. Guess we'll see if the producers' pocketbooks are big enough to keep Dogs in Pocketbooks moving forward.

Thoughts???

    As long as she is compensated you could say whatever you want about her

    She's gotta make money somhow, guess random lawsuites will pay her bills. Stupid kunt !



  3. 3

    lol its the only way she can make money in show biz anymore.

    You know the old saying. "If the shoe fits." It usually refers to an unflattering description of an unamed person, which prompts somebody to come forward and claim it's about them. To which one responds, "Hey….if the shoe fits." Then the other person is supposed to feel embarrassed that they're trying to claim that the unflattering description is about them. But that whole thing seems to be lost on LL. It's like there's no shame there. Besides, she's never owned a dog that she's toted around in a pocketbook. That description matches Paris Hilton. I think this movie is more like a composite of different real life starlets and LL is just one of several. LL seems a little narcissistic to me.



  5. 5

    Does she not realize that this movie could be about a dozen other socialite cumdumpsters? She's just doing it because she thinks she can get a cash settlement since she's so desperate.



  6. 6

    IN MY OPINION:THAT FUGLY FIRECROTCH WAS AND NEVER WILL BE A MOVIE GODDESS..LOL…AND I THOUGHT HER SO CALLED ”MOTHER” SAID SHE DIDNT HAVE A DRUG PROBLEM? OR A DRINKING PROBLEM? IF SHE WASNT LYING THEN I SEE NO LIKENESS HERE..



  7. 7

    Hey and while LL is at it maybe she should retroactively sue Pink for her "Stupid Girls" video from a few years ago where Pink mocks all the airhead starlets partying and bopping around L.A. Cause it's obvious that video was all about LL, right? "That was me! I recognize me! She was talking about me! I'm suing!" Sure girl, if the shoe fits.

    First, why would ANYONE want to make the Lindsay movie before we get the great death scene. Second, I notice they want "compensation" for Lindsay's name. I guess Momma and her other less talented kids are feeling the squeeze now that the cash cow is in rehab.



  9. 9

    Dina Lohan reminds me of the Jackson Family—they only want their money maker exploited if there's money in it for them. The "Lohan Team" should be grateful Lindsay is still somewhat significant because she is on a fast track to oblivion.



  10. 10

    No law suit here. In the description this says "movie goddess", and Lindsay Lohan has been in one theatrical release this past year with a tiny role. The last hit she had was 5 years ago with Mean Girls, so these movie makers are in the clear!!!
    Movie Goddess= Jolie, Johanson, Alba, Winslet, etc. Lohan is in no way, shape, or form in their category.

    Big Deal! Just call it an "Unauthorized Biography" and they can't touch you! It's been done a thousand times and each and every time the person of interest sues for unauthorized usage it's thrown out of court. Grow a set of balls and just go ahead full steam with the bio and it will be cheap entertainment for anyone who sees it.



  12. 12

    This is How Lilo will make her money$$ for now on..Suing people for talking about her



  13. 13

    i demand royalty payments for the suggestion to add jackson browne's song lawyers in love to the soundtrack and i happen to be serendipitously listening to that song right now



  14. 14

    i ate too much too fast, particularly hexenpunsch. its a sweet syrup you add to water and i had ten glasses



  15. 15

    She such a joke at this point it is really silly isn't it? I guess if this is the only way she can make money she should be sad because nobody else is running around ready to hire her for films anymore. Gee Lindsay honestly I could care less now if you ever get a real job. The brat really does suck. I hope you disappear and take your weird family with you.



  16. 16

    ugh really? Linds is doneso! no more work nor respect for her! and her family! i personally would be mortified to have parents like that! they (the Lohans) are all pathetic! They are nothing but coke heads!!!!



  17. 17

    Lindsay has now become a pathetic excuse for a human being. Jesus, her so called mother will do anything for money. Lindsay needs coke money … so lets sue someone because they are making a movie about her pathetic life. I am so SICK OF LINDSAY LOHAN bullshit! Those recent pictures make her look like a dried up prune … that bitch is 22ish and she looks as bad as her bucktoothed mother who is probably 50. Too much coke sniffing and boozing will do that to you. Why can't she just drop off the face of the earth and only come back when the lies have gone.



  18. 18

    "dogs in pocketbooks" sounds more like Carl Hiassen's book "Star Island". also about a bratty druggie star



  19. 19

    If its a parody ( other sources are calling it a "mockumentary"/some type of comedy) then there is no case. You are legally allowed to "poke fun" at someone's character, it just can't be with malicious intent. Think Family Guy ( they poke fun of celebrities in every episode), or Pink's music video…
    If the movie doesn't use the actual name "Lohan" ( i.e. Dogs in Pocketbooks: The Lindsay Lohan Story) …then there is no case either.
    You also can't sue someone for "inspiring" a project.

    Sooooo…where's the case?



  20. 20

    "Mommy!!!!! Why are they making a movie about me? It' not like I'vebeen sleeping arond since 16. Opp. Well I haven't been to rehab 6 times. oh. Well I didn't kidnap and chase someone at 110 mph. Oh. well I didn't lie about losing my passport in Europe. oh that too. Well I haven't been a lesbian. Oh right. it's not like I've had more dicks in me then you mommy. Oh really. Well I know i didn't sneak out of rehab to go drinking that's for sure. DAME IT!!! FUCK IT GO MAKE THE MOVIE!!"



  21. 21

    There have been many "bad girls" before her. Angelina and Drew to name two. She's not that special. Could be any of them. Blah blah blah whine cry fart…. over.



  22. 22

    Seems like the only way she can be in the news……rehab, falling off the wagon, and suing.



  23. 23

    Lindsey and her "camp" ie; Dina need to stop worrying about her image. She fucked it. Worry about getting better, everything else will fall into place if she can do that right.



  24. 24

    Several other Hollywood Starlets have been in and out of rehab as well. Lindsey is just the freshest and newest



  25. 25

    Okay…Lohan is no "movie goddess" to begin with. She hasn't done anything for movies since she was about 12. This girl who is playing the "movie goddess" looks nothing like Lindsay. Even meth-ed out and hungover, Lindsay Lohan is a very pretty girl. The actress who is supposedly playing her in this movie looks like a cross between Lindsay's little sister and skeletor.

    Re: chewy styrofoam edible candyman – you make no sense.. we get it.. you put random shit together and want a response.. your not clever.. just a moron.

    Alot of movie are based on real people without them being compensated so it must be legal. For instance, the Social Network movie based on Mark Zuckerberg. There have been plenty of made for tv movies based on real people without their permission also.



  28. 28

    Also — I literally NEVER even noticed that the baby in that commercial was named Lindsey. I thought it was a cute commercial and I think it is made to sound like the baby is any random nameless party girl.

    For a bitch who likes to complain that people are trying to extort money out of her, she sure likes to go sue crazy whenever someone mentions ANYTHING that may or may not be similar to her own life. Get off your high horse, you're gross Lindsay!!



  30. 30

    give me a break. That description is half of hollywood. Its pop-culture, they make movies about whats relevant… the Lohan's need to get over themselves big time :P

    Hey, Lindsay's been copying half of us slightly older people on here since most of us partied hearty when we were younger. Let's start a class action lawsuit. Her life is about us. Ruddy copycat. I want my slice.



  32. 32

    OMG Did I call this one right or not. In yesterday's posts I said that Dina would run to an atty and start some shit about this movie. I was so right. OMG I have got this family down to a tea on their next steps. Stop sueing ppl Dina and get a real job. Lazy ass bitch.
