Actress Who Sued IMDb Must Come Forward


The woman who sued IMDb a few months ago claiming they posted her true age without her consent has been ordered to either drop the suit or to file the suit under her real name. A judge ordered on Friday that "the injury she fears is not severe enough to justify permitting her to proceed anonymously." The actress who lives in Texas must now decide whether or not she really wants to proceed with the suit. I want her to just so we know for sure who she is.

ENTy, who do YOU think it is?

Rita said...

^that chick from Bring It was his top guess... If I remember correctly.

Jessica said...

They said whoever it is lives in Texas, if that helps narrow it down.

Actress or no actress, her age shouldn't affect her career, but unfortunately in the US/Hollywood it does. I think she should sue. If posting her age without her permission has killed her career, then she should sue IMDB for destroying her form of income.

Jessica said...

Also, I think it's someone we've never heard of. There has been enough written about it that said she was "up and coming" and that she feared this would prevent her from "breaking out" etc... all things used if she is basically a nobody in the entertainment world.

what is Bring It?

von said...

Bnl1016, I think the poster meant "Bring It On"--in reference to the actress Nicole Bilderback. But apparently she's on Twitter and denied it's her. It probably is someone relatively unknown.

I recall reading (maybe in the lawsuit itself?) that she looked much younger than her actual age, and she's been getting parts that would normally go to younger women. So by posting her true age IMDb, she would no longer get those parts. But I would think she'd have to give her correct age to SAG, so casting directors should know the truth.

If you search cdan enty guessed who he thought it was I'm on an iPhone stuck at the airport so I can't search right now

I do not see how she has a case against IMDB if all it did was state a true fact.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

There's a lot of chatter about it on Nicole Bilderback's IMDB message boards: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0082169/board/threads/

This lawsuit seems dumb. Looks mean more than age in my opinion. I think I would be proud if I was 40 and looked much younger.

I mean 1/2 the cast of 90210 were in their 30s by the time filming ended.

Bianca Lawson played a high schooler in Saved By the Bell The New Class (1993) and is playing a high schooler again in Pretty Little Liars almost 20 years later.

I'm suspicious of some actors'/actresses' real age. Especially of the ones who claim to be in their early to mid-twenties. Some of them already have deep wrinkled foreheads or crow's feet. Some of them look like their actually in their thirties.

IMDB is notorious for not correcting misinformation. I've worked on some small indie films in my town. They've had me listed as playing myself in a documentary about African American surfers. I'm a fat, bald, middle-aged white guy! They guy I share my name with is an athletic young guy. Not that I'd mind trading places. I've put in a dozen requests to IMDB to fix it. They don't. Maybe when the other guy puts in a request it will get changed.

Sherry said...

Yeah what Lauren said..

@Mina - I'm 26 and I've had lines on my forehead since my early teens. I think it's a genetic thing, as I stay out of the sun and try to take care of my skin. It stinks, but what can I do, short of Botox, right? :)

Lori said...

@.debbie. i'm the opposite...almost 32 and no wrinkles at all. Get carded allllll the time and people argue with me when I tell them how old I am. Sucks on both sides of the fence.

@NYer: a "true fact"? As opposed to a "false fact"? Why is that dumb expression catching on?
