- The actress Lindsay Lohan has sued E*Trade Financial Corp for $100 million, saying a "milkaholic" baby girl who appeared in a recent commercial was modeled after her.

Lohan alleged that online brokerage's use in the ad the girl, also named Lindsay, improperly invoked her "likeness, name, characterization, and personality" without permission, violating her right of privacy.

In her lawsuit filed Monday in a Nassau County, New York state court, the 23-year-old actress sought $50 million of compensatory damages and $50 million of exemplary damages. She also demanded that E*Trade stop running the ad and turn over all copies to her.

Lohan's lawyer Stephanie Ovadia did not return requests for a comment. An E*Trade spokeswoman declined to comment, saying the New York-based company had not reviewed the complaint. A copy of the complaint is available at http://www.tmz.com (http://www.tmz.com/) .

What a joke, although I personally think that campaign has jumped the shark ages ago.

So in the span of 2 seconds in that commercial and ONE word, she saw it as copying her "likeness, characterization, and personality".

That is just beyond pathetic:lol:

Apparently, Lindsey Vonn is now saying that the commercial hampered her preparation for the Winter Olympics. Lindsay Price from "Lipstick Jungle" is going in on the lawsuit too.

So I'm assuming all she's done being an "escort" to all those old rich Russian men?
