A US businesswoman who appears in Sacha Baron Cohen's movie Borat claims she was misled into appearing in the film.
Sacha Baron Cohen's character has been a hit in US cinemas
Cindy Streit, from Birmingham, Alabama, is seen being handed a bag supposedly containing faeces by Baron Cohen's fake Kazakh journalist.
Ms Streit, who owns an etiquette training firm, says she was told filming was for a documentary which would only be screened in Belarus.
But film studio 20th Century Fox called her claim "nonsense".
It added Ms Streit signed an agreement which stated a film was being made.
On her appearance in the film where she hosts a dinner party for Borat, Ms Streit told the Associated Press news agency: "My horror was that he had bought a bag of faeces to my dinner table."
The 59-year-old, who has asked California's attorney general to investigate, says she is not ruling out a lawsuit.
20th Century Fox spokesman Gregg Brilliant said: "Her fee was negotiated and paid."
He added that after filming had been completed, she asked for and received an additional payment and signed another release.
Two US students who appear in the film are also suing 20th Century Fox after claiming they too had been tricked into appearing in the movie.
