The lawsuit that Woody Allen filed against American Apparel for using his image on a billboard has gotten really personal. "In a deposition for his $10 million suit against American Apparel, filmmaker Woody Allen called the hipster clothing company's products 'low-end' and their ads 'sleazy,' 'adolescent' and 'infantile.'" Not content to take that lying down, American Apparel "fired back yesterday by demanding records showing whether his 'highly publicized sex scandal and custody battle' involving ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow and her adopted daughter Soon-Yi -- Woody's wife -- had affected his earnings."
