Looks more like...

Actress Lindsay Lohan is suing game devs Rockstar and Take-Two for allegedly copying her into their Grand Theft Auto V (GTAV) game. Grand Theft Auto Lindsay Lohan lookalike Lohan claims that the character of the rather vapid actress "Lacey Jonas" in the game amounts to using her likeness without permission and has accused …

Seconded, having just googled her. Much more like her than Lohan
Yeah... I didn't think of Lohan when I first saw the image... Maybe she needs a new revenue stream?
Hollywood actresses all look the same anyway.
Lindsay...have you started drinking again? You know how irrational you get when you do that. Please be a doll and stop...again.
It just looks to me like a generic blonde stereotype, not like anyone in particular
Can't see any powder around the nose... So it can't be her can it?
"a generic blonde stereotype"
Yup, that'd be Lindsay Lohan....
And her lawsuit isn't?
Can't see the resemblance myself. Could possibly be due to the fact the artist's work doesn't count for years of alcohol and drug abuse.
Dammit you beat me to it.
Making money? So immoral!!
The point of the lawsuit is that she's entitled to make money from her own image and other people aren't.
I was thinking along the same line: character doesn't look skanky enough to be Lindsay.
Even if it did, in the US: Parody!
Except that in the US, that isn't a valid basis for a lawsuit. Especially as a public figure she is very, very subject to the parody exception.
And the next version includes a crack-lady-of-negotiable-affection who looks exactly like Ms Lohan - with extra points if you kill her
"The point of the lawsuit is that she's entitled to make money from her own image and other people aren't."
Is she? Aren't they? I don't remember voting for that.
But it wasn't for the money, it was done solely for the LoL's.
That's NOT Lindsay Lohan? I'm not buying it then. What a gyp!!
El Reg's SPB better watch out...
No worries...the aircraft looks nothing like its namesake, and contains far fewer banned substances.
I don't know... It is rather thin, and those wings do rather resemble spread legs.
But it gets high and then crashes.
Yeah, but the paintjob is far better than the human version.
Ha! She wishes.
The character struck me as more of a general representation of the sort of vapid, airheaded bint that seems to pass for celebrity these days than anyone in particular. Ms Lohan shouldn't take it personally, she's one of many.
If her argument is that she is the definitive vapid, airheaded bint, well...the case might be a slam-dunk for her..
You have a point....
Can I claim Paris Hilton as prior art?
Her only sort of hook is the story line following some of her exploits so closely. But at that, you're allowed to use it. See Kitty Kelly, any of her "unauthorized" biographies.
Makes sense as Lindsay Lohan is obviously the only bikini wearing blonde in California.
A person who LIVES as a parody of society should understand about fair use and such… but then is suing over it being MORE or LESS in character?
But the character is sufficiently different that she will have a hard time proving it, especially as the physical appearance is so different
It might be undeniable, or attorneys might prefer to believe so.
It's the rounded corners that give it away.
No track marks in the arms, no teeth missing from meth abuse and no drooping eyelids or yellowing from jaundice brought on by excessive alcohol consumption.
Tell the daft bitch to get a grip and jog on...
Just because they're rendered on a two dimensional surface, it doesn't make them as shallow as you Lohan!
"The cover for the game also features a woman holding a mobile that could arguably be said to look like Lohan"
It's going to fail. The mobile looks nothing like Lohan.
Dagnammit! That was going to be my line!
How hammered was she not to realise she was in a voice booth for Rockstar when that got recorded?
Unless they somehow stole (actionable) or got a royalty-free (tough titties, Lohan) bunch of her speech then that shows she knows exactly what was going on, excepting the afore-alluded-to hammeredness.
It could of course be an intentional and cynical tie-up between Lushy Lohan and Rockstar to generate coverage, let's not rule that out.
Rockstar have been caught red handed here and deserve to pay:
Very good. Has this been submitted to Private Eye's Lookalikes?
Looks more like Kate Upton to me
Actually, the girl on the cover "could arguably be said to look like" Shelby Welinder, the model that Rockstar hired.
Perhaps she can now sue Lohan for trying to appropriate her image?
good catch, Jai!
You're not going to tell me all that dim-wittedness is for real are you? She's clearly devoting her whole _life_ as a 24/7 performance that parodies the pointlessly rich and famous.
Well done Lindsay!
A teener says this is just a ploy to increase LLs profile. Lets face it, her acting career is down the tubes, she's got to something to deserve the celeb title to get on the next Celebrity Big Brother.
Had the same thought - even chose the same title. Ah, well, serve me right for not reading down the full thread first.
She looks just like a rocket plane going into LEO - you guys could be next, the likeness is remarkable, and you've even flagrantly named it after her...
I can see the next up grade has her as a worthless crack whore, that can be used and abused ( much more like her real life) or that just stagers out on the road trying for tricks from speeding cars, and is now just life carnage (just like her real life)
Lohan is reaching pretty far with this lawsuit. The picture in this article does not look at all like Lohan. This lawsuit of hers is little more than an attempt to achieve relevance in the public eye again. What was the last movie she played in that sold well at the box office?
Vapid. aka Vacuous II.
