Huong Hoang, the actress who sued Amazon and its internet movie database, IMDB, revealed her real name.
The judge threw out her lawsuit which was filed earlier, saying she had no basis for suing, if she did not publicly disclose her true name. Junie Hoang is her stage name, which she used to act in “Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver” and “Hoodrats 2: Hoodrat Warriors.”
Why didn’t Junie Hoang want Amazon or IMDB to disclose her vtrue age? Hoang said she was getting along in years and the diusclosure ruined her chances of getting more work. Hoang claimed Amazon destroyed her movie career by revealing her secret age. In December 2011, her lawsuit was dismissed in Seattle. On Friday, Jan 6, 2012, Hoang decided she wanted compensation more than preserving her true identity so she refiled her lawsuit.
Some people wonder if Junie Hoang gained more by drawing attention to herself. Her lawsuit has disclosed her secret. She probably would get more film roles, and more money, after getting more famous.
