A 42-year-old actor who claimed she lost out on movie roles after theInternet Movie Database published her real age has lost a landmark lawsuit against the website.

Texan Huong "Junie" Hoang had been backed by US acting unions in her bid to sue IMDb for breach of contract after the site used credit information and a third-party verification website to research her true age for its "Pro" subscription site, which is used extensively by Hollywood agents. A Seattle jury found yesterday that the Amazon-owned website had not breached any legal obligations to Hoang following a two-day trial.
