Julianna Margulies

'Good Wife' Accused

of Being Bad Client

EXCLUSIVE

Julianna Margulies' former management team helped her score a hit TV show and a lucrative spokeswoman contract ... but they claim she's screwed them out of the money she's been making off the deals since she dropped them ... this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.

According to court docs, Margulies hired D/F Management in 2009 and they helped her get her big role on "The Good Wife" and her gig as a face of cosmetics giant L'Oreal. Despite their good work, D/F claims Margulies gave them the boot in April 2011.

D/F doesn't have a problem with being dumped ... what they're pissed about is the fact that Margulies has stopped paying them their agreed upon 10%.

In the lawsuit, filed by attorney by Mathew Rosengart, D/F claims they are out $420,000 in commissions so far and wants that money ... plus a judge's order saying they keep getting their 10% for as long as Margulies keeps the deals.

THE PROBLEM IS WHY DO THE FRIGGIN CHECKS GO TO THE CLIENT AND NOT THROUGH THE MGT COMPANY FIRST?? LIKE, DONT THEY DEDUCT THE 10% BEFORE SENDING THE NET GROSS TO THE CLIENT'S ACCOUNT??? APPEARS MAJORITY OF LAWSUITS IS ABOUT THIS SH*T ALL THE TIME. HMM, YA THINK?? #TRUTH!!

When you sack agents, they want commissions from EVERY deal they had they're hands in at the time of the sacking. If they have excellent records, they may awarded most of what they're seeking.

She is not very pretty, and has average talent at best. If you walked by this woman in LA you wouldn't even notice her. She should pay her bill, she is lucky to be working in that town at all.

How is she the face of L'Oreal? She looks more like the face of Marlboro.

Wow, I love how TMZ picked the worst picture possible of her (not even a picture but a video still), and you all are judging her by it. Julianna Margulies is one of the best, most respected television actresses out there, has more acting awards than you have I.Q. points, and is actually an extremely beautiful woman. You wouldn't be saying otherwise if you were even familiar with who she is or her work. I'm sure she probably will pay whatever her old management company wants because SHE GETS PAYED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR HER ACTING TALENT. SHE CAN DO THAT WITHOUT FLINCHING. Now please, find something better to do than say stupid and untrue things about someone whose work you're not even familiar with just to make yourselves feel better about your own inadequacies.

It"s amazing to me how stupid she and others like her are, thinking they can turn their backs on a T.V. role and expect to make the jump to movie star status. She tried and failed, this being the reason she dumped her last p.r. team for her present one. They did get her the jobs and are entitled to compensation.

They want 10% for the life of EVER deal? BS..

Seriously, the talent agency lawyers need to be reigned in on what they charge for their "services".
