A lawsuit claims a leak from Marisa Tomei's New York City apartment has damaged the homes of two downstairs neighbours, including director John Waters.
The neighbours' insurance companies filed the suit this week in a Manhattan court.
It claims the My Cousin Vinny actress's "negligence" caused a September 2010 leak that left more than 128,000 US dollars (£81,000) in damage at the building in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.
Hairspray director Waters says in an email the case is a standard insurance claim completely out of his hands, adding there was no animosity between him and the Academy Award winning actress.
