'X-Men' Star's Dog -- Breakin' the Law

10/13/2009 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Famke Jannsen -- who played Dr. Jean Grey in "X-Men" -- is responsible for a New York restaurant breaking the law ... and she can thank her furry little friend for helping her do it.

According to New York City Health Code, it's illegal to bring a dog into a restaurant -- including the patio, if food is being served -- but Famke was snapped sharing an intimate meal with her canine at Il Sole on Sunday anyway.

We spoke to the owner of Il Sole, who told us she wasn't aware Famke was there with her pooch -- or she wouldn't have let it happen.

The only exception to the law is if the dog is specially trained -- such as a seeing eye dog -- but we're pretty sure Famke doesn't need one of those ... despite the giant black sunglasses.

Why are you stirring up trouble TMZ? What's the big deal with her sitting with her dog on a patio? He looks well behaved. I've sat outside restaurants with my dog plenty of times in NYC and they usually offer him a doggy bowl of water. Get bent.

So I guess when the waiter was serving her, her meal he/she didn't happen to see her dog sitting on the chair?, right...

Come on guys! Are you serious?!?! Don't you never do things that are actually forbidden? This proves that celebrities are also human. Shame on the papperazzi; what is this for kind of news? Don't you have anything better to do?!?!?!?!
