Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher is planning to take legal action against adult entertainment company after it used his name to promote a sex tape.
Vivid Entertainment bosses are set to release a new porn video featuring Brittney Jones, who claims to have slept with the actor.
However, the actor has sent a letter to the company claiming they're specifically furious over a press release for the video, which says, "Ashton's fans will undoubtedly enjoy seeing what the star himself may have experienced", reports tmz.com.
In the legal letter, Kutcher's lawyers claim that the company is infringing on the actor's "marketable celebrity identity value" -- and promise they will sue them until they stop associating his name with the porn video."We received the letter late this afternoon and I immediately forwarded it to my attorney. We will respond accordingly," said Vivid head honcho Steve Hirsch.
