An actress who was a star of Hollywood’s Golden Age apparently is not a fan of the recent FX limited series “Feud: Bette and Joan.” Olivia de Havilland, who is played by Catherine Zeta-Jones in the series, filed a lawsuit today over the series, the AP reports.
The series focuses on the famous Hollywood feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.
De Havilland, a two-time Oscar winner, turns 101 tomorrow, July 1. She’s suing FX Networks and the company owned by producer Ryan Murphy, alleging invasion of privacy and unauthorized and false use of her name, the story reports.
“The actress, whose credits include the role of Melanie Hamilton in ‘Gone With the Wind,’ lives in Paris,” the AP notes. “De Havilland’s suit alleges that ‘Feud’ used her name and identity without permission. The suit also claims the series inaccurately depicted her as a gossip, contrary to her behavior and reputation.”
