:Movie stars face this all the time. Tom Cruise is the object of all sorts of "truths" and revelations. He ignores them all except for the one from a German magazine that said he was less than manly because his sperm count was very low so Ha Ha.
That time he slapped a suit on them because by implying he was less than manly, they were hurting his perceived image as a REAL MAN and we all think we know that a lot of sperm, or big nuts makes for a real Man.
They off course had no such proof...just a good story, the kind stars don't bother with no mater how "upset" they might be or how much sleep they lose. But if he can show that they concocted the whole thing AND that this slander could cost him real and serious financial damage because producers might be less likely to cast him in his traditional roles...then he at least got their attention and they printed a retraction. That was enough.
