"The Nanny" star Fran Drescher was dismissed from a lawsuit brought by a stunt woman who claimed she was injured during filming of "Beautician and the Beast." Drescher, who was executive producer as well as star of the movie, was dismissed Friday along with two producers and a writer, said her attorney, Donald Etra.

She is seeking unspecified damages for asthma, exhaustion and other problems, according to her Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit.
