Actress Nicole Bilderback Pokes Fun at IMDb Age Discrimination Lawsuit in ‘Funny Or Die’ Video

Youthful-looking actress Nicole Bilderback is best known for appearing in 1990s teen classics Clueless, Can’t Hardly Wait, and Bring It On as well as appearing in shows like Dawson’s Creek and Dark Angel.  Though Bilderback was in her twenties for each of these roles, it wasn’t uncommon for her to be cast as a teenager — she even appeared as a med student as recently as 2005 in an episode of House

So when reports surfaced last year that a forty year-old Asian-American actress from Texas was suing IMDb for posting her age, many of Bilderback’s family and friends assumed that she was the anonymous woman behind the lawsuit, since Bilderback is also Asian-American and lived in Texas for some time (although Bilderback is only in her mid-thirties, not forty).

Though the actual actress behind the lawsuit, Junie Hoang, has since revealed herself, the Wall Street Journal reports that because of the story Bilderback’s name came up in speculation stories all over the internet.  Until Hoang revealed herself in January, Bilderback had to fight off rumors that she was the anonymous actress, but decided to make the best of the fallout by joking about the situation in a Kerfuffle video produced with Funny or Die.  Though I can’t say I found it very funny, Bilderback obviously knows how to use the situation to her advantage.  You can check out the video below:
