Katherine Heigl is suing Duane Reade for $6 million after the drug store chain tweeted a paparazzi picture of the actress carrying Duane Reade shopping bags and used it to promote the company.

Last month, a paparazzo snapped a pic of the star after her shopping trip, and the official @DuaneReade Twitter account posted it with the caption, “Love a quick #DuaneReade run? Even @KatieHeigl can’t resist shopping #NYC’s favorite drugstore.”


Now, Heigl has filed a lawsuit, seeking millions.

According to TMZ, the actress emphasizes her high profile and popularity in the court documents, arguing that she was unwittingly used to endorse Duane Reade.

Heigl says she’ll donate the monetary judgment to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, devoted to animal welfare.
