jessica-alba-playboy.jpgJessica Alba is threatening to sue Playboy for putting her image on their cover, claiming that Hugh Hefner & Co. are trying to make it seem that she appears in a “nude or semi-nude pictorial.” The Smoking Gun has a copy of the legal threat letter which requests that Playboy cease distributing the magazine and provide Alba with a “monetary settlement” for its unauthorized use of her image for commercial purposes.

The ploy might have worked better if Playboy had picked a somewhat new image as opposed to the Into the Blue promo that everybody’s already seen. It’d be like Newsweek putting the Ghostbusters poster on their cover and pretending they’ve got exclusive pictures of Bill Murray with real live ghosts.
