by Loreto Corredoira (2018)

Since 2017, we have been witness to “sex scandals” in Hollywood. This article doesn't call in to question the aggressors' presumption of in nocence, but it focuses on the damages that does to the personal rights to one's own image and reputation of women (celebrities) in the film in dustry. Rights in contradiction as it has been seen from Europe will be compared. Rights like image, dignity and physical in tegrity, reputation, personal and family privacy, honor, and their balance with the right to communicate will be explained using the concentric circles theory.

Keywords:
rights to one's own image, reputation of celebrities in film in dustry, personal and family privacy, honor, balance with the right to communicate.
