Olivia de Havilland Sues Ryan Murphy & FX Over 'Feud' Portrayal

Olivia de Havilland is suing FX and Feud: Bette and Joan executive producer Ryan Murphy over the way they portrayed her on the limited series.

The legendary actress, who celebrates her 101st birthday on Saturday (July 1), was played by fellow Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones on the series.

Olivia says that she has a reputation for not gossiping or expressing an unkind behavior, but she was portrayed in the opposite way on Feud. She also says that she was not asked to give permission to use her likeness on the show.

“[A]ll statements made by Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland in this fake interview are completely false, some inherently so; others false because they were never said,” de Havilland‘s lawyer writes in the complaint (via THR). “FX defendants did not engage in protected First Amendment speech in putting false words into the mouth of Olivia de Havilland in a fake interview that did not occur and would not have occurred.”

“Zeta-Jones’ de Havilland refers to Joan Fontaine as her ‘bitch sister,’ an offensive term that stands in stark contrast with Olivia de Havilland’s reputation for good manners, class and kindness,” the complaint adds.

Olivia says no one contacted her about the show, despite her being the only living person who experienced the events depicted in the show. A couple months ago, she explained why she would not watch the series.

American Crime Story's 'Versace' Season to Air Before 'Katrina'

The Hurricane Katrina-themed season of American Crime Story was expected to be the anthology series’ next season, but FX has announced that the installment has been pushed to late 2018.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace, starring Edgar Ramirez, Darren Criss, and Penelope Cruz, will now be the second season of the series.

The Versace season will air in early 2018 and the Katrina season, starring Annette Bening, Sarah Paulson, Matthew Broderick, and more, will air later that year.

Ryan Murphy is executive producing both seasons. The People v. O.J. Simpson, the first part of the anthology series, picked up nine Emmy Awards last year.

Ryan Murphy Teases Season 7 of 'American Horror Story'

Ryan Murphy just joined Instagram and one of his first posts is a teaser for the upcoming seventh season of American Horror Story!

The television producer/writer/director shared a photo of an elephant with an evil smile, which looks similar to the bloody smile featured on the clown in American Horror Story: Freak Show.

The seventh season of the anthology series will follow the events of the 2016 presidential election and it’s significant to note that the elephant is the symbol of the Republican party.

Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters are confirmed to star in the upcoming season.

Penelope Cruz to Play Donatella Versace on 'American Crime Story'

Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz will be portraying the role of fashion designer Donatella Versace in the upcoming season of Ryan Murphy‘s Versace: American Crime Story.

The installment of the FX anthology series will follow the murder of Donatella‘s brother Gianni Versace.

Edgar Ramirez is set to play Gianni while Darren Criss is playing serial killer Andrew Cunanan.

Versace: American Crime Story will air on FX in 2018 and it will be the third installment of the series, following the upcoming season about Hurricane Katrina.

Lady Gaga, a longtime friend of Donatella, was considered for the role, but Ryan says her schedule is way too busy for a five-month commitment right now.

Ryan Murphy Says Donald Trump Character Will Not be in 'American Horror Story' Season 7

Ryan Murphy is clearly up some rumors about the upcoming season of American Horror Story.

Earlier this month, the AHS creator shared on Watch What Happens Live that the seventh season of the hit horror show will be about the past 2016 presidential election.

While attending the Publicists’ Awards last night, Ryan clarified that seven season will be based off of the election, but it will NOT feature actors portraying candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

“The themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories,” Ryan said via IndieWire. “You will not see Trump and Clinton as characters on the show.”

However, while accepting the Television Showmanship of the Year award from Sarah Paulson, Ryan joked that he might have the perfect character for her to play.

“Now as I look over at Sarah, I think of Kellyanne Conway,” Ryan joked. “I don’t know! I might be rewriting!”
