Daryl Hannah Sues Bike Company
ET has obtained new court papers in which 'Kill Bill' beauty Daryl Hannah sues a purported hybrid electric bicycle company for using her name and picture in its ads without her permission.
In the papers, Hannah alleges that the company's Web sites and the cover of its catalogue feature a picture of her riding a bike on advertisements.
The papers allege that Hannah's counsel first asked the company to remove her name and likeness from its ads this May -- the company allegedly wrote back saying they would comply, but purportedly continued to use the 47-year-old actress' name and image.
In the lawsuit, Hannah asks for an amount of money in damages "that is not yet fully ascertainable, but is believed to be in excess of one million dollars."
