April 10, 2014 Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl is very upset.

The actress filed a lawsuit against a drug store chain Duane Reade Inc. for allegedly using her name and picture for promotional reasons without her consent.

"Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can't resist shopping #NYC's favorite drugstore," read a tweet posted March 18 on Duane Read's Twitter account, which at this moment is still a live tweet.

he photo was also used on Duane Reade's Facebook account to "imply falsely that Plaintiff endorses Defendant," Heigl's suit charges.

"The Heigl photograph is a typical ‘paparazzi' shot, depicting plaintiff walking on the street in New York City, in a private moment looking away from the camera," the complaint continues, per court documents obtained by the New York Daily news. "Use of plaintiff's image under these circumstances improperly exploited plaintiff's name and likeness, as a celebrity, for defendant's commercial advertising and purposes of trade, without authorization."
