Lindsay Lohan is suing the makers of Grand Theft Auto 5, claiming that a character from the video game bears a striking resemblance to her.
The actress filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against Take-Two Interactive Software (TTWO), the company responsible for the video game. Lindsay Lohan claims that Lacey Kunis — a character from Grand Theft Auto 5 — mocks the actress and her history of reckless driving.
The suit claims that Take-Two “incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff’s clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff” in Kunis.
The Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood is also featured in the game–a hotel where the actress lived in 2012 and ran up an unpaid $46,000 bill.
TTWO stock is up about 0.5% Thursday afternoon.
