Blogger sued over topless Aniston photo

A Hollywood movie studio filed a lawsuit claiming gossip blogger Perez Hilton posted a stolen topless photograph of Jennifer Aniston on the Web. Universal City Studios Productions LLLP filed the suit Tuesday claiming the stolen image was posted on the perezhilton,com Internet site by Mario Lavandeira, aka Hilton.
The picture was allegedly "misappropriated and illegally copied" during production or post-production of the 2006 romantic comedy hit The Break-Up, starring the actress and Vince Vaughn, the suit said.
The shot of Aniston, 38, was not included in the final version of the movie, which earned more than $118 million at the box office.
The lawsuit, claiming copyright infringement and filed in U.S. District Court, said Lavandeira "posted all or parts of the stolen footage from the motion picture on his website."
