French cosmetics firm Lancome is countersuing actress Uma Thurman.
The actress had alleged in her own lawsuit that Lancome used her name and image on Canadian billboards and Asian web sites after her multi-year, multi-million-dollar contract had ended.
In pursuing its countersuit, the French beauty company insists that it did not violate its contract and that Thurman is not entitled to the $1 million she has demanded.
It seems unlikely that the two parties to the suit will kiss and "makeup" on this lawsuit. If it proceeds to a jury trial, it should be quite an interesting case.
Lancome filed its lawsuit in Manhattan's state Supreme Court.
