Iran May Sue Hollywood

It wasn’t because of Ben Affleck’s beard. Iran is reportedly considering suing Hollywood because of Argo’s “unrealistic portrayal” of the nation. The move comes after Iranian culture officials and film critics watched the movie on Monday. Last month, Tehran said the film was pro-CIA propaganda. The film, about the escape of American hostages from that nation in 1979, won the Oscar for Best Picture. We’re going out on a limb here, but chances are this lawsuit will fail.
