Alba Withdraws Lawsuit Threat After Receiving Apology

Actress Jessica Alba has accepted an apology from Playboy's former publisher Hugh Hefner and has apparently decided not to sue the magazine for putting a photo of her on the cover of its March issue. The celebrity was more than miffed when the mag failed to get permission from her or Sony Pictures. Alba says that readers expect that women who grace the magazine's cover will also appear inside, and that since she neither agreed to pose for Playboy, nor agreed to be interviewed, the use of her image was misleading. Playboy will also make some donations to charities in which Alba takes an interest. Read more here. Read an earlier post here.
