Pippa Middleton and Other Celebs Who've Sued Normal People for No Reason

Novelist Grégoire Delacourt is currently being sued by Scarlett Johansson for name-dropping her in his book, The First Thing We See /em>. A character in the book is confused for Johansson for a moment in the story, and the author says he chose to compare her to ScarJo because "she is the epitome of beauty today." Ryan Gosling and Gene Hackman have apparently also been named in Delacourt's works, and somehow made it through without financial compensation.
