Jessica Alba threatening to sue 'Playboy' over cover appearance

UPI News Service, 03/01/2006 

Actress Jessica Alba is threatening a lawsuit against Playboy magazine for putting her picture on its cover without her permission.

The magazine reportedly asked the 25-year-old actress to pose for its March cover, an offer she flatly turned down, her attorney Brian Wolf told The Smoking Gun.

After Alba said no, the magazine allegedly got a promotional photo from Alba's film, "Into the Blue," which is what appears on the March cover, Wolf said. Next to the photo is a promotion for a story on the 25 sexiest celebrities.

The cover implies Alba appears in a "nude or semi-nude pictorial," which she does not, Wolf further charged.

In addition to a letter from Wolf, Playboy has also received a letter from Columbia Pictures demanding an apology for its "outrageous, unethical behavior in obtaining the promotional photo.
