Woody Allen In Catfight With American Apparel

1weeWoody Allen.jpgLast year, Woody Allen filed suit against local clothing manufacturer American Apparel over the use of his image in advertising billboards. Now things are getting ugly/amusing. From the New York Post:

In a deposition for his $10 million suit against American Apparel, filmmaker Woody Allen called the hipster clothing company’s products “low-end” and their ads “sleazy,” “adolescent” and “infantile.”

But the clothier, which plastered an unauthorized shot of Allen on billboards in New York and LA, fired back yesterday by demanding records showing whether his “highly publicized sex scandal and custody battle” involving ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow and her adopted daughter Soon-Yi — Woody’s wife — had affected his earnings.
