Fox Vows to ‘Vigorously Defend’ Olivia de Havilland ‘Feud’ Lawsuit

14 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The producer of “Feud: Bette and Joan” has fired back at Olivia de Havilland, vowing to “vigorously defend” the series against the lawsuit filed last month by the screen legend.

On Tuesday, de Havilland asked a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to speed up the trial schedule for her suit, given her age. The 101-year-old Oscar winner maintains the FX miniseries from Ryan Murphy Productions about the longstanding rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford damaged her reputation through Catherine Zeta-Jones’ portrayal of her. De Havilland’s complaint maintains she was not consulted for the production, which has grabbed 18 Emmy nominations.

On Wednesday, “Feud” producer Fox 21 Television Studios issued a statement defending the limited series and asserting it had every legal right to depict de Havilland as producers saw fit.

“Our project was a meticulously researched dramatization of the well-documented feud between actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford,” the statement said. “The »

FX's biggest event this fall may not be the debut of American Horror Story: Cult — as Olivia de Havilland is asking the court to expedite her lawsuit against the network over her portrayal in Feud: Bette and Joan.

The 101-year-old actress says Ryan Murphy's series made her look like a gossip who exploited the personal lives of others to further her own career. De Havilland is the only living person portrayed (by Catherine Zeta-Jones) on the show, yet she wasn't consulted, and she is suing for infringement of common law right of publicity, invasion of privacy and »

Snowfall Review: FX's '80s Drug Drama Is Too Scattered to Get You Hooked

2 July 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There’s an intriguing, vibrant story at the heart of FX’s new drama Snowfall. Unfortunately, there are also two other, less interesting stories that come along with it — and the show ends up Od’ing on an excess of ambition.

Snowfall, debuting this Wednesday at 10/9c, comes from co-creator/executive producer John Singleton, who immortalized the streets of South Central L.A. with his iconic ’90s film Boyz N the Hood. Here, he takes us to his old stomping ground a decade earlier, in the summer of 1983, when small-time weed dealer Franklin (Damson Idris) gets his first tantalizing taste of the cocaine trade. »

Olivia de Havilland Sues FX and Ryan Murphy Over 'Feud' Portrayal by Catherine Zeta-Jones

30 June 2017 4:58 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here's an idea for the next season of Feud -- Olivia de Havilland vs. Feud.

The actress, who turns 101 on July 1, is suing FX and Ryan Murphy Productions over her portrayal in Feud: Bette and Joan.

De Havilland, who is the only living person portrayed in the FX series, was played by Catherine Zeta-Jones in the show. In a complaint filed at L.A. County Superior Court on Friday, the legendary actress claims she has built a reputation of "integrity, honesty, generosity, self-sacrifice and dignity" by refusing to engaged in "typical Hollywood gossip" -- but that Feud's opening, which features Zeta-Jones doing an interview as de Havilland creates the impression that she sold gossip to promote herself.

Newswire: The real Olivia De Havilland sues FX over her depiction in Feud

30 June 2017 3:54 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

One of the biggest dangers in making a TV show about actual Hollywood drama is that the people involved in Hollywood drama are often very concerned with how they are perceived, as Feud creator Ryan Murphy is now learning. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Olivia De Havilland is suing FX and Murphy’s Ryan Murphy Productions over the way she was depicted on the show, explaining that it put “false words” into her mouth as part of a “fake interview that did not occur and would not have occurred.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones played De Havilland on Feud, and the lawsuit says that she was depicted as “a hypocrite who sold gossip to promote herself.” This is apparently very upsetting for the real De Havilland, who has prided herself on the “reputation for integrity and dignity” that she built by “refraining from gossip and other unkind, ill-mannered behavior.” She’s also »

Olivia de Havilland Sues FX, Ryan Murphy Over ‘Feud’ Portrayal

30 June 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On the eve of her 101st birthday, Olivia de Havilland is serving FX with a gift of her own — a lawsuit.

The actress is suing the network, along with Ryan Murphy Productions, over her portrayal in “Feud,” saying that it paints her in a false light, according to court documents obtained by Variety. The lawsuit claims that “Feud” “puts words in the mouth of Miss de Havilland which are inaccurate and contrary to the reputation she has built.”

Catherine Zeta-Jones portrayed de Havilland in the anthology series. The lawsuit argues that de Havilland has built a reputation of integrity for herself, and refrains from gossip. The series, however, paints an opposing picture.

While de Havilland remains the only person alive who experienced the events surrounding the titular feud — Bette Davis and Joan Crawford died in 1989 and 1977, respectively — the suit says that no one consulted her for the series. The documents point to the opening scene of the »

Olivia de Havilland Sues "Feud"

30 June 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Photo by Damon Winter via La TimesHere's a deliciously fitting coda to the first season of Ryan Murphy's Feud. Olivia de Havilland, who was played by Catherine Zeta-Jones (in a bewilderingly bad performance given Czj's talent!), is suing Ryan Murphy and FX for the unauthorized use of her identity! She definitely did not like being portrayed on the bitchy side. Her lawyer says:

...the FX series puts words in the mouth of Miss de Havilland which are inaccurate and contrary to the reputation she has built over an 80-year professional life, specifically refusing to engage in gossip mongering about other actors in order to generate media attention for herself."

While Bette Davis's daughter B.D. (played by Kiernan Shipka) and one of Joan Crawford's twin girls Catherine (played by Chelsea Summer) are still alive, Olivia is the only celebrity portrayed in Feud: Bette vs Joan who »
