Actress Lindsay Lohan has never shied from free publicity. She’s hoping, however, that a judge will award her payment from the creator and publisher of blockbuster video game Grand Theft Auto V, which she accuses in a new lawsuit of unlawfully profiting from her likeness.

The Mean Girls star sued game developer Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive Software for using her image, voice, and events from her life in developing the “Lacey Jonas” side mission in Grand Theft Auto V, which was released in September.
