Catherine Zeta-Jones has filed a lawsuit against a Reno, Nev., strip club, claiming the business wrongfully used the star's photograph on its Web site.

The suit, filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, charges that The Spice House used images of the Oscar-winning actress on its site, adjacent to photographs of partially nude women. The lawsuit charges that Zeta-Jones's image created a false impression she "endorsed or approved of the sexually explicit content," the Associated Press reports. It also claims that her appearance on the site could lessen "the value of her celebrity endorsement."

Zeta-Jones says she never authorized the club or its owner to use her photograph or likeness, and her suit seeks unspecified damages as well as an order that would bar further use of any images of her.

The club, which bills itself as "Reno's friendliest topless cabaret," did not immediately respond to the charges.

Zeta-Jones will next appear in the film Ocean's Twelve, due out Dec. 10.
