Angelyne

Plastered Without Permission

1/5/2010 2:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Angelyne -- the woman who has plastered herself all over the billboards of Hollywood -- is suing FOX Searchlight Pictures for allegedly using her billboard image in the movie "Notorious" without permission.

Angelyne

In the federal lawsuit, Angelyne calls herself "a world renowned celebrity" who is world famous "for her eye-catching and highly visible billboards and photographs..."

Angelyne says after the January 2009 release of "Notorious" -- a movie about Notorious B.I.G. -- several of her fans saw the flick and told her the famous billboard was shown in the movie for at least 12 seconds.

Unlike the highly-acclaimed movie "Volcano" (in which an Angelyne billboard crashes to the ground during a volcanic eruption) ... FOX Searchlight violated her copyright by not getting her permission before showing the billboard in the movie.

Angelyne wants damages and an injunction putting the brakes on using her image in the movie.

She's a female airhead ad industry all by her lonesome. Famous for nothing but her billboard.

Her birthdate is stated as 1963. More like 1953. She's older than she's playing.

I've never heard of her, but then again, I live in Cleveland. I think only people that live in CA know who she is, so she's not as famous as she thinks she is! LOL!

Ok I am from L.A. , how she got to where she got to was by this . She had a old shurgardaddy who I think was a armenian who paid for the billboards to promote her , fame for nothing other that being on billboards , no talent other that a dye job and big fake boobs , acting like Maryln or Jayne Mansfield a bimbo , basically . In her heyday of the strip Gazzaries and the other 80's or early 90's hair band days she was know to like sex with many a rock star or band , especialy if they were alot younger , but then she was already alot older , so you see the reality of it LOL . See angelyne I saw you around , I worked alot of clubs you frequented and say your styk , or lack of it , you need to go back to the assisted living care facility you were at and just give it up kid , no one cares , sorry

She has been around Hollywood for ever and even tho her DOB is 1958 you can tell its more like 1948 maybe earlier. Even with all the plastic surgery she has a body and walk that screams old lady. She truely lives in La La Land

That picture is SOOOO old that I'm surprised it's not part of the public domain, like classical music and "Happy Birthday".

She is at least 80 years old now.
