Jake Gyllenhaal's lawyers are taking action against website bosses who posted a picture online which appears to depict the star in his underwear.
But Gyllenhaal has a fight on his hands - chiefs at Queerty
The photo shows the Brokeback Mountain actor in tight white briefs and socks as he stretches on one leg in a pose resembling Grace Jones' stanceon her Island Life album cover.
Gyllenhaal's legal team has fired off letters to a number of websites, including Queerty.com and Buzzfeed.com, demanding that the photo is removed.
The star's attorneys write, "As anybody could tell from a cursory examination, this is a fake picture, in which our client's head has been pasted on the body of another person", adding that it portrays him "in a falselight, violating his right of publicity and constituting a false designation of origin in violation of the Lanham Act".
But Gyllenhaal has a fight on his hands - chiefs at Queerty.com are refusing to remove the image until it is proved to be a fake "We're keepingthe photo up, since it hasn't been proven fake and because their letter bumped it from 'funny and cute' to 'actually newsworthy.'"
