Lindsay Lohan may be a touch paranoid. The actress is suing the makers of an E*trade commercial, claiming the baby featured in the spot was based on her.
The E*Trade ads have become one of the most loved on television, featuring talking infants who are integrated into adult situations, such as flying first-class back from Vegas and trading stocks from their high chairs.
But one of the most recent spots has ticked off Lindsay. The commercial, which debuted during the Super Bowl, stars a baby named Lindsay who is a “milk-a-holic.” According to The New York Post, Lohan is suing the company for $100 million, claiming the baby was modeled after her.
Lohan's lawyer Stephanie Ovadia said in a statement, “Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit. They used the name Lindsay. They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
An E*Trade spokeswoman says the company simply “just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team.”
