A judge has made a temporary order to keep topless photographs of actress Cameron Diaz under wraps until a court case decides their permanent fate.
Diaz was a model before taking up acting
The Hollywood star wants the pictures, taken before she found fame, to be kept out of view forever.
She has sued the photographer who took them, John Rutter, who wants to sell the shots.
On Monday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Alan Haber ruled that they should remain "sealed" until the case ends.
He also ordered that a video - the contents of which neither side would discuss outside the court - should also remain out of the public domain.
Diaz says she never gave Mr Rutter permission to make the pictures public and that he forged her signature on a contract.
Mr Rutter says he contacted Diaz's lawyers to offer them the photos before offering them to any media outlets.
But the judge refused to keep all other court documents sealed.

He said: "There have been many notable celebrities before the court and if I seal this [entire] file, I'd be asked constantly to seal files."
Diaz, 30, worked as a model before becoming one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses.
She made her film debut opposite Jim Carrey in The Mask in 1994, shortly after the photos were taken.
She has since starred in a string of hits, including My Best Friend's Wedding, There's Something About Mary and Charlie's Angels.
The recent Full Throttle - the sequel to the first Angels movie - enjoyed box office success around the world.
