Aniston Sues Paparazzo Over Topless Photos

Jennifer Aniston (photosJennifer Aniston photos) is suing a paparazzo, claiming he invaded her privacy by using a telephoto lens to photograph her topless at her house.

The lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court alleges that photographer Peter Brandt must have observed the 36-year-old actress "from a great distance through invasive, intrusive and unlawful measures."

The photos "could have been taken only by means of trespass" and were shot in a place where she had reasonable expectations of privacy, claims Aniston, who is best known for her role on "Friends".

Brandt said he took the pictures three weeks ago while standing on a public street in Los Angeles about 300 yards from her house. He said was trying to photograph Aniston with Vince Vaughn, who was at the house at the time. Aniston and the 35-year-old actor are reported to be dating.

"I wish she hadn't just walked out topless," said Brandt. "That's not what I was looking for". Brandt said Aniston was in her backyard, which had small bushes but no fence.

The lawsuit said Brandt had shown the topless pictures to agencies but Brandt declined comment and said he had no intention of selling them.

Aniston, who also has starred in movies including Bruce Almighty, Derailed and Along Came Polly, is seeking monetary damages and a court order to stop Brandt and anyone else from making money off the photos.

The lawsuit comes as the Los Angeles County district attorney's office is investigating whether increasingly aggressive celebrity photographers are initiating confrontations to capture lucrative photos.

Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson (photosScarlett Johansson photos) and Lindsay Lohan (photosLindsay Lohan photos) have also had alleged run-ins with paparazzi in recent months.
