Scarlett Johansson Wins Book Defamation Lawsuit

Scarlett Johansson has triumphed in her defamation trial against an author who penned a book featuring a character based on the actress.

The Captain America star accused French writer Gregoire Delacourt of making “fraudulent use of her name, fame and image” in his book La premiere chose qu’on regarde (The First Thing We Look At), which features a character described as Johansson’s “exact double” who is treated as a sex object.

The actress sued for $69,302, accusing the novelist of using her likeness to promote the story.

In a ruling on Wednesday at a court in Paris, France, Johansson won the case but was awarded just $3,397.
