HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, Los Angeles Bureau) – Newly-divorced Angelina Jolie is suing Filipino actor and makeup transformation artist Paulo Ballesteros for celebrity infringement.
Ballesteros stars in a Filipino film, “Die Beautiful” in which he impersonates a dead Angelina Jolie.
The publicist for Jolie told The Adobo Chronicles that she first contemplated on suing Ballesteros when the Filipino actor appeared at the Tokyo International Film Festival as the American actress. Many in the festival crowd thought it was the real Jolie they were seeing.
Ballesteros went on to win the Best Actor award at the festival.
His film is currently showing at the Metro Manila Film Festival and is drawing huge crowds and critical acclaim.
