Olivia de Havilland Loses Legal Battle Against FX & 'Feud'

Oscar-winning actress Olivia de Havilland‘s defamation lawsuit against FX Networks has been thrown out by a three-judge panel in the court of appeals.

The legendary actress sued the network, alleging that she was defamed by a damaging portrayal in the Ryan Murphy limited series Feud. She says the producers never asked permission for the portrayal or consulted over the events that happened in the show.

The court unanimously ruled that the First Amendment protects filmmakers who portray real events with fictionalized elements.

“Whether a person portrayed in one of these expressive works is a world-renowned film star — ‘a living legend’ — or a person no one knows, she or he does not own history,” Justice Anne Egerton wrote (via Variety). “Nor does she or he have the legal right to control, dictate, approve, disapprove, or veto the creator’s portrayal of actual people.”

FX received support from the Motion Picture Association of America as a ruling in de Havilland‘s favor would give celebrities and politicians the right to shut down any films about their lives.

Ryan Murphy Opens Up About 'American Crime Story: Katrina' & 'Feud' Season 2!

Ryan Murphy is opening up about what’s next for two of his successful franchises!

The series creator discussed the future of American Crime Story and Feud in an interview with Entertainment Weekly following the finale of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story on Wednesday night (March 21).

“We’re working on a couple of things. That’s a show where we have a lot of things cooking,” Ryan said of Katrina.

“We literally just edited the finale last week, so we haven’t made that decision yet. We’re never going to have a Crime Story unless we have the scripts down. I think the reason why Versace went next is because Tom Rob Smith had such a strong take on it. I am not in a rush to move forward with anything unless it’s perfect. So we’ll see what’s next for that.”

As for Feud season two?

“Still talking about it. We’re still deciding it. I have the new Netflix deal and I have all my shows with Fox, I don’t want to do something unless the scripts are ready and the casts are ready. I’m taking my time and just trying to get everything right,” he said.
