'Mini-Me' Attempting to Prevent the Distribution of His Sex Tape

 

39-year-old Verne Troyer, the actor who played 'Mini-Me' in the Austin Powers movies and Griphook in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, has taken legal action in an attempt to prevent distribution of a sex tape of him and a former girlfriend.

The 2-foot, 8-inch actor claims the tape was stolen. He is seeking $20 million for breach of copyright and invasion of privacy. He has also requested an injunction to prevent the tape from being distributed further.

The tape has reportedly come into the possession of the producer responsible for the release of Paris Hilton's sex tape.

  ewwwww  
 
Windows has magnification settings for those who want to see the other mini. Not I!!!!

  That is ...  
 
just plain spooky!

LOL

I often wonder how such tapes get stolen.

 
  by: DeepSand   06/27/2008 05:51 PM     
  I...  
 
will give this one a miss.

Poor guy!
 
  by: captainJane     06/27/2008 06:46 PM     
  But yet  
 
He has no problem being embarrassed in front of millions in The Love Guru... how ironic.
 
  by: caution2     06/27/2008 07:43 PM     
  lol  
 
I know how to solve this.

Never make a tape in the first place

  @caution2  
 
In that case it's probably greed, not irony.

I can see why he wouldn't want that out. Whether he chooses to embarrass himself in a movie or not (I haven't seen it so I don't know your reference) it's still his choice whether his sex tape gets out or not. What did he do in The Love Guru btw?

  Rumor has it  
 
that valkyrie123 has already reserved several copies of this film.

  need a fix in the article...  
 
Out of all the Harry Potter movies that I've caught the trailers for... I've never seen one for the Philosopher's Stone. Checked on IMDB and confirmed that it should be Sorcerer's Stone. :-p
 
  by: pcXXXtreme   06/28/2008 01:25 AM     
  @pcXXXtreme  
 
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in the United States as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. As the book originates in the UK I think the use of the original title is acceptable. In any case, I have to follow the source and the source says 'philosopher'.
 
  by: ixuzus     06/28/2008 02:58 AM     
  We should  
 
all pitch in so that this tape never, ever sees the light of day again. I think about a billion should do it.

amir: Point taken. It was his choice to star in such an embarrassingly bad movie.

  What is wrong with you guys?  
 
I wanna see it out of bizarre curiosity.
And to laugh my arse off.

I think 99% of celeb sex tapes and the surrounding litigation/media attention are pure marketing exercises. The only cost of the free advertising over the world press worth millions$$$ is the celebs' dignity. It is literally a case of them whoring themselves to the 'biz.

Do you think its a coincidence that Paris,Britney etc were all busted without their panties?

Yes I do. And he's not a mini me oh my oh me. It's close but I doubt it is actually 2 ft 8 inches.....but real close. You guys are just jealous.
 
  by: valkyrie123     06/28/2008 07:00 AM     
  ahhh  
 
I love midget porn! at 2 ft 8 inches I can see how he was able to use it as a kick stand in austin powers.

  The Tape  
 
The tape wasn't stolen, Mini Me had his girlfriend sell it to the producer, and the producer goes to release it. Mini me comes back and says it was stolen so he can make some headlines, get his day in court, etc. Eventually it becomes released and it sells more than it would of sold if they had just released it. That is how the business works. The whole court precedure is like a informercial for TMZ, and any other news publication that wishes to cover celebrities.

  My guess is  
 
It will be a very "short" movie.

Thank goodness for that.

Lets all chip in and send Valkyrie the "extended" version.

"I often wonder how such tapes get stolen."

I often wonder why such tapes get made.

I can't imagine porn more boring than watching myself have sex.

And if I didn't make it for myself, then it was made to show others, and that's what's happening, so what's the problem?
 
  by: biggfredd   07/06/2008 03:11 PM     
  Who is in the tape with him?  
 
And did he have to strap a 2*4 across his *ss to keep from falling in?
