A trio of Hollywood celebrities has adopted a new get-tough policy with the tabloid press. Especially the Australian press.
Two of the three, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, are suing New Idea magazine over a story about their relationship. The magazine alleged that Moore’s obsession with exercise and an eating disorder are breaking them up.
The third, comic Jim Carrey, is suing Woman’s Day magazine, over allegations that he sexually harassed a variety of big-time actresses. Among them, Jennifer Tilly, Courteney Cox, Alicia Silverstone, Drew Barrymore and Courtney Love.
An attorney in the firm representing the celebs says the trio “all intend to pursue their legal rights vigorously and are confident of vindication.”
