Hollywood veteran Peter Fonda has taken legal action against Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana over a T-shirt featuring his character from Easy Rider.
The 73-year-old movie icon claims designers for the brand used an image of him from the iconic 1969 film on the clothing without his permission.
He filed a lawsuit at the Superior Court of California on Friday alleging the T-shirts, which feature a black and white picture of him in character, have damaged his “happiness, feelings, goodwill, reputation, image”.
The lawsuit also targets retailer Nordstrom, which has been selling the shirts for around $295 each.
Fonda is seeking at least $6 million in compensation, as well as legal fees and all profits made from the range, according to
