Stockett on HELP Lawsuit

Kathryn Stockett gave a statement to USA Today on the lawsuit filed by a woman who claims the author used her name and image, without permission, as the basis for Aibileen Clark, one of the characters in her book.

The movie based on the book is scheduled for release on August 12th. Pictured below are Emma Stone as Eugenia ‘Skeeter’ Phelan and Viola Davis as Aibilene. The L.A. Times featured an interview with the film’s director, Stocktett’s childhood friend, Tate Taylor, last month.
