Julia Roberts and George Clooney have filed a joint lawsuit against two audio-visual companies, claiming they used their likenesses in advertisements.
The pair, who appeared together in the "Ocean's Eleven" franchise, stated in court documents filed on April 27, that the companies used their photographs to market equipment on their websites without permission from the actors.
Once labeled "America's Sweetheart" by the press, Julia Roberts takes a mean turn as The Queen in the comedy twist on "Snow White" in the film "Mirror Mirror" starring Lily Collins and Armie Hammer.
"It was just such good fun," Roberts told OnTheRedCarpet.com in a recent interview of her role as the villain in the film. "We played with it, we played with it before we started shooting we worked a lot on just kind of making it bigger, and meaner and funnier as best as we could and then we would make things up as we went along."
Julia Roberts's children may have no idea that she's a major film star.
"They've never seen me in a movie before, but, that's all in due course I think," the 44-year-old actress told OnTheRedCarpet.com.
She made her comments in an interview to promote her latest film - "Mirror Mirror," which sees her taking on a role she usually doesn't play - the villain. Roberts plays the Evil Queen in the film, an adaptation of the popular fairy tale "Snow White." It hit theaters on Friday, March 30.

Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts are set to star as a mother and daughter in the new film "August: Osage County," which is based on a dark, comedic play.

Julia Roberts plans what may be one of the most conceited Evil Queens seen in any adaptation of "Snow White."
In her new comedy film "Mirror, Mirror," the 44-year-old actress dons gaudy dresses, rolls her eyes at the mere mention of the young maiden and dismisses her fair complexion as a product of sun depravation. Check out the trailers below.
Julia Roberts stars in one of two film adaptations of "Snow White" due out next year. In Roberts' film, currently called "Untitled Snow White," the actress plays the Evil Queen opposite Lily Collins' Snow White and Armie Hammer's Prince Charming.
"She's pretty evil," Roberts told OnTheRedCarpet.com about her "Snow White" character at the recent premiere of her film "Fireflies in the Garden." "Evil has a face. Tarsem [Singh , the director] is amazing. He was not shy, he was not scared of us doing anything. He was amazing. He really let us run wild."
