Actress sues movie site for telling the truth about her

Written by Nick Farell

You can't mention woman's age

A US actress is suing Amazon for more than $1 million for revealing her age on its Internet Movie Database website and refusing to remove the reference when asked.

The unnamed actress lives in Texas, is of Asian descent and has an Americanized stage name. In her lawsuit she says that IMDb misused personal information after she signed up for the industry insider IMDbPro service in 2008.

She noticed her legal date of birth had been added to her public acting profile. She requested that it be removed and IMDb refused.

The lawsuit moans that in Hollywood a person who is approaching 40 can't get work and it is nearly impossible for an up-and-coming actress, such as the plaintiff, to get work as she is thought to have less of an 'upside', therefore, casting directors, producers, directors, agents-manager, etc. do not give her the same opportunities, regardless of her appearance or talent. While she can't get work because of her age, she still looks young enough to play younger characters, the suit complained.
