Thurman in new legal battle with Lancome
Days after her testimony helped send a stalker to jail for a year, Uma Thurman is embroiled in another legal battle: this time with the cosmetics giant Lancome, the dpa reported.
The Kill Bill actress is claiming 15 million dollars from the company which she claims knowingly used her image to sell their products after her contract expired. The 38-year-old beauty signed on as a spokeswoman for Lancome in 2000 but says her name and image continued to pop up on the company's websites and billboards in Canada and Asia after her contract ended in 2005.
Lancome maintains that use of her image was completely unintentional and all advertisements were pulled as soon as the company became aware of them.
