Woody Allen demands millions from clothing brand

By Richard van der Draay     Apr 17, 2009 in Entertainment
The American film director and actor Woody Allen is reported to be furious with the US clothing company American Apparel.
The brand has used images from his 1977 film Annie Hall for an advertising campaign without his permission.
Woody Allen is demanding ten million dollars because his image has been damaged.
Allen claims that the company, which is the largest producer of T-shirts, has damaged his image. In the advertisements is shown a scene from Annie Hall in which Allen appears as an orthodox Jew.
Lawyers for American Apparel are trying to shift the focus by claiming Allen has already irreparably damaged his own image by marrying his step-daughter Soon-Yi.
One of the lawyers said to the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph that Woody Allen overestimates the value of his image.
In 1992, actrice Mia Farrow ended her relationship with the director when she found out he was having an affair with their adopted daughter Soon-Yi. Allen married her in 1997.
