Clint Eastwood -- Don't Sit on My Face!

1/17/2008 5:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a lawsuit in which Clint Eastwood is suing a furniture upholsterer for distributing "The Eastwood" home theater chair.
Read the lawsuit
In the lawsuit, filed in Federal District Court, Eastwood claims Palliser Furniture used "his name, image and/or likeness" to hawk the product. Sit on that!

The company has sold other home theater chairs using the names of stars, including "The Brando," "The Cagney," "The Bronson," and "The Connery." Brando's family also sued the company after his death -- that case is still pending.

Eastwood's lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and an injunction.

Did they compare his skin to the leather couch?
Use lotion on that leather face and people would not compare you to furniture.

LOL Clint

Eastwood won't win this case. Palliser Furniture is too powerful. On a related note, I just bought a couch from Palliser. :)

Ooooo Noooo!    

Good for Clint. His name and image are his property and he should be able to control its use.

Standards are badly needed.    

I agree that they should have negotiated the use of his name. He should win.
After reading Sondra Locke's book, I find it hard to believe Eastwood would feel indignant about anything.
