Jude Law

Sues Fireplace Company --

I'm Too Hot For You!

Jude Law
is HEATED over allegations his face has been hijacked by a Canadian fireplace company ... and now, he's filed a lawsuit.

Jude filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming Paloform illegally used his face in advertising on its website as well as its Facebook page and Pinterest account.

And in case they've forgotten how famous he is, Jude calls himself "one of the most recognized, highly regarded, critically acclaimed, and commercially valuable motion picture actors in the world." He then attaches his IMDb profile for good measure.

According to the lawsuit, Law never once gave permission for Paloform to use his likeness ... and he wants them to pay up.

Law is suing for unspecified damages. He also wants a judge to order the fireplace company to stop using his face.

FYI -- we did some cursory research ... and couldn't find Jude's face on Paloform's Facebook, website, or Pinterest.

"And in other news, Amish fireplace makers are delighted to announce their new partnership with Jude Law and said he is a perfect candidate to represent their fine products because of his facial hair." Seriously, you need all the publicity you can get Jude. You're B-rate as far as actors go.

Law's problem, like so many current actors, is that he looks so nondescript. The fireplace company could have pulled someone off the street used their image and it would probably resemble Law's image in some way. Except that it would probably be better looking. If they used his image shame on them, but Law better be careful because in three years he will probably be almost completely forgotten and willing to pay this same fireplace company to use his image in the exact same way.

Hope they used a photo from at least 10 years ago or, as others have said, they probably LOST customers. His teeth look like a row of corn nibblets..

Oh give me a break, any one of you common-taters on here would jump at a chance with Jude. And I highly doubt he gives this site the time of day, because he has a far more interesting and rich life than any of y'all will ever achieve. But you're so cute with yer big comments, it's adorable.

Ah man I really liked Jude too. Then he has to go and say how awesome, talented and famous he is. Ugh. Should have just left it as a law suit for using his picture without asking and left it at that
