Ex-model Irina Krupnik is mad that a bikini photo of her was used as a prop in the 2009 film Couples Retreat, which starred Vince Vaughn, and has filed a $10 million defamation lawsuit against the releasing studio, NBC Universal, according to the AP. Krupnik claims that she gave the picture’s rights over to a photo stock agency, where the filmmakers would have obtained it. Krupnik adds that a character in the movie used her photo as a sexual aid. The lawsuit apparently says Krupnik would never have allowed the photo to be morphed from “a commonplace swimwear ad to softcore pornography.” A rep for NBC Universal released the following statement about the lawsuit: “The photo at the center of this claim was licensed to Universal and the studio was entirely within its rights to use it in Couples Retreat.”
