Amazon Actress Age

JUNIE Hoang lost her Privacy Lawsuit. When she was 40, the the ageing actress sued Internet Movie Database (IMDb) for reporting her real age. She’s now 41.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports:

Returning a verdict Thursday afternoon, a federal jury in Seattle ruled that the popular entertainment website didn’t breach its contract with actress Junie Hoang, a 41-year-old Texas woman featured in a number of low-budget horror movies and the upcoming television program “Exotic Dancers of Houston.”

Hoang sued IMDb and its parent company Amazon in 2011 claiming her privacy was invaded and career impacted by the release of her age. Responding to Hoang’s claim, attorneys for IMDb asserted it has the right to publish true and accurate information, and that Hoang attempted to lie about her age.

Writing the court, Hoang attorney Keith Scully contended IMDb violated its customer services agreement when it published Hoang’s true birthdate after she signed up for a “professional” membership to the service. IMDb contended Hoang invalidated the agreement she sought to have enforced when she violated its terms by lying on her profile.

Because 41 is sooooooo old. Although, Ms Hoang can act younger. And older.
