IMDB Vs. Actress Suing Over Age Disclosure

imdb lawsuit continues

We can't believe this ridic lawsuit is still going on!

Last month, we learned that an anonymous actress, who lives in Texas, had filed a lawsuit against the Internet Movie Database for $1 million because the website revealed that she is approaching 40 years old!

Now, Amazon.com (IMDB's owner) is striking back against the actress, and they're trying to get the case dismissed because the woman reportedly "first tried to get the service to post a false birthdate so she could fool potential Hollywood employers into thinking she was younger than she actually is." Ugh.

Here's what IMDB had to say about it:

"Truth and justice are philosophical pillars of this Court. The perpetuation of fraud, even for an actor's career, is inconsistent with these principals. Plaintiff's attempt to manipulate the federal court system so she can censor iMDb's display of her birth date and pretend to the world that she is not 40 years old is selfish, contrary to the public interest and a frivolous abuse of this Court's resources."

IMDb is also saying that if this case must continue, the anonymous woman needs to reveal herself because they're claiming they "cannot fairly defend against the Complaint in this case with the identity of the plaintiff secreted."

Makes sense to us! Sounds like it would be in everyone's best interest for this case to be dropped once and for all.

What do U think? Team IMDB or Team anonymous actress???

    I do not see where it's IMDB's place to police and enforce somone to tell their True age. Age really isn't anyones business. I believe the woman should win.



  2. 2

    Ugh, I thought this site was done talking about Tila Tequila..? She's totally irrelevant–plus, she clearly looks her age so this just reeks of desperation.



  3. 3

    She probably has little to no career anyway! How many famous Asian actresses are there, really?



  4. 4

    principals? seriously? :D

    I hope she can continue to sue AND WIN. There is absolutely age discrimination in Hollywood and her age is nobody's buisness but her and her employer's. IMDB is a tool that casting directors, directors, agents, and producers use all the time. A head shot and emplpyment history is all that should be displayed - if they want to know more about an individual, they should go in for an audition. Age is just a number. If someone looks the part - then age should be irrelevant. It should also be removed from their site - it only welcomes potential employers to discriminate.

    if she wants to be on IMDB than she has to reveal her age. Someone's got a serious issue there. I'm definitely on Team IMDB. She probably looks like 40 anyways

    Re: 7tizz
    She's lying to her 'employers' about her age, so she obviously thinks it's none of their business as well.

    By the by you fathead (Perez) why are nearly half your postings "Comments Off"?

    I bet it is Tina Louise who is who is 77 but looks Asian due to her plastic surgery. lol

    I have seen photos of the actress in question. First off, she is 37, not 40. She looks damned good for her age & can pass for much younger. She never stated she is trying to hide her age in her personal life, but rather that professionally having her age out in the public leaves her open to age discrimination. And at no point do they offer up a defense as to why they have the right to post personal information on their site against an individual's wishes or by accessing and publishing information they have gathered from personal and private information, as she claims they did in this case. By issuing this statement Amazon is trying to further humiliate her and probably thinks she'll remain quiet by revealing her age as even older than she is.

    Ha! Which means she is probably 45 already & doesn't want anyone to know. LOL.
    My neighbor went to middle school with Melanie Griffith & they were friends & in fact had actually the same birthday. She signed his year book & stuff, pics of them together as kids. Weird though how he is 56 & she is only 53 wow she sure must a been a genius in the 8th grade. These people lie so much about age it is disgusting. Camille Grammar & I are the same age but she was 28 for like 5 years running. Now it seems she is honest about it so maybe its the press or whatever. This IMDB suing actress is gonna look like a chump.
