Unusual Merchandising Tie-Ins

Here's a headline you don't see every day: Uma contract rejects rectal meds.

Come again?

Turns out it's about the terms of actress Uma Thurman's latest movie contract, which is said to include a clause
banning movie bosses from using Thurman's "name or likeness" in merchandising deals for products including "tobacco, weapons, religious items, personal hygiene products, intimate apparel, porn, gambling, pet food and stomach or rectal medications."
Personal hygience products, pet food and stomach or rectal medications, eh? I didn't realize that might be a problem. But since it is, apparently, I'd love to see this douche's visage on kitty litter and suppositories.
