Vergara files lawsuit against beauty brand

Los Angeles, Jan 26 (IANS) Sofia Vergara has filed a lawsuit against a beauty products company for using her face without a contract. She says she usually charges $15 million for such endorsements.

Vergara claimed that Venus Concept blew up images of her and used them to promote its products around the world. In the lawsuit, she says the whole thing started with an innocent Instagram post, reports

The actress says she got Venus’ Legacy treatment, a skin tightening massage, in August 2014. She posted a photograph of herself on the table which got about 40,000 likes.

However, she says she actually didn’t like the treatment and found it “a waste of time and money with little in the way of any results”.

But she says Venus took the opportunity putting up photos of her at exhibition booths and on its website with captions like, “Loved by … bombshell actress Sofia Vergara.”

Vergara said Venus never paid her anything.
