Celebrity Skin (magazine)


Celebrity Skin (magazine)

"Celebrity Skin" is a pornographic magazine which specializes in showcasing naked or semi naked celebrities; it shouldn't be confused with its rival "Celebrity Sleuth".

The September 1999 issue of "Celebrity Skin" contained photographs of Jennifer Aniston sunbathing topless in her back garden. The photographs also appeared in the December 1999 issues of "High Society" and "Celebrity Sleuth". The April 1999 issues of the Italian magazine "Eva Tremila" and the British newspaper "Daily Sport" carried the pictures, as well as the May 31–June 6 issue of the French publication "Voici".Cite web|url=http://www.hollywood.com/news/detail/id/1110558|title=Jennifer Aniston Settles Topless Photo Lawsuit|accessdate=2006-11-28|publisher=Hollywood.com Inc.|year=2002-07-02|author=Huver, Scott|work=News Story]

Aniston filed a lawsuit against Francois Naverre, who took the photos in February 1999. Aniston also filed suit against Man's World Publications and Crescent Publishing Group for publishing the photos.Cite web|url=http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/showbiz/2064851.stm|title=Aniston sues over topless photos|accessdate=2006-11-28|publisher=BBC (British Broadcasting Company)|year=2002-06-25|work=BBC News: Entertainment: Showbiz] Crescent was charged by the United States government in 2000 with illegally billing for website access that was advertised as "free", and for billing others who had never visited the websites. The websites included www.playgirl.com and www.highsociety.com.Cite web|url=http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2000/08/crescent.htm|title=Thousand of Consumers Illegally Billed for "Free Tours" Promoted by Sites|accessdate=2006-11-28|publisher=United States Trade Clommission|year=2000-08-23|work=Playgirl Web Site Faces FTC Charges]

Aniston also sued "Eva Tremila", "Celebrity Sleuth", "Voici", and the "Daily Sport". She settled with "Eva Tremila" and "Celebrity Sleuth", and received a US$1,000 judgement against "Voici". She eventually settled her suit against the "Daily Sport" for £40,000.Cite web|url=http://media.guardian.co.uk/presspublishing/story/0,7495,995817,00.html|title=Friends star wins topless damages|accessdate=2006-11-28|publisher=MediaGuardian.co.uk|year=2003-07-11|author=Dyer, Clare|work=Press & publishing (Site requires free registration.)]

Naverre, owner of Los Angeles paparazzi agency X-17, paid Aniston US$550,000. Aniston filed a similar suit in 2005 against photographer Peter Brandt.Cite web|url=http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=1379924|title=Photographer: Topless Aniston 'Exposed Herself'|accessdate=2006-11-28|publisher=ABCNews Internet Ventures|year=2005-12-05|author=Wolf, Buck|work=Good Morning America]
