Angelina Jolie's Stunt Double Sues News Corp. Over Phone-Hacking


Eunice Huthart files a lawsuit against the media company for allegedly intercepting her mobile phone messages.

Global celebrity Angelina Jolie's stunt double, Eunice Huthart, has now become the first person to file a lawsuit against multinational mass media corporation News Corp. for the alleged hacking of her mobile phone by its British tabloids, The Sun and News of the World. It is the first time a lawsuit has been filed against the company since the phone-hacking scandal broke out two years ago.

Huthart, a British professional stunt double, claims reporters from the two News Corp. tabloids tried to intercept messages from her mobile phone while she was working on location in Los Angeles back in 2005 for movie "Mr and Mrs Smith" starring Jolie. As a result, the two tabloids were able to feature articles on Jolie's budding relationship with then co-star Brad Pitt, despite only a few people close to the pair knowing about it, including Huthart.

According to the lawsuit filed by Huthart, News of the World reporters intercepted her voice mail that carried information later used by the tabloids in their news reports about Jolie and Pitt. A close look at Huthart's phone log revealed her messages have been hacked and deleted even before she got a chance to hear them.

Huthart says working as a stunt double for Jolie has enabled her to "develop a close friendship" with the Oscar winner, and by knowing private information regarding the famous actress made her a target by the tabloids. The phone-hacking had even affected her relationship with her husband and daughter who got alienated by not getting responses for messages they sent to Huthart which she failed to receive.
