An Iraqi actress said she decided to sue the “Economist” magazine over the use of a picture of her in the British weekly magazine in a report on the fact that Arab women are “more fat than men.”

Inas Taleb said that the use of the image came out of its context and that the matter was done without her permission, which constitutes a violation of her freedom and privacy, noting that the image was modified using Photoshop.

The famous actress and talk show host said in an interview that she had started legal proceedings in Britain.

The magazine did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
