Scooby Doo actress Sarah Michelle Gellar was banned from eating in McDONALD'S as a child - by the multi-million dollar company itself.

The beautiful blonde was blacklisted by the corporation after appearing in an advert for rival company BURGER KING, in which McDonald's was named and shamed. And the furious lawsuit filed by the company named young Gellar, restricting her from dining at their fast food restaurants.

Sarah says, "When I was five I did a commercial for Burger King.

"McDonalds were so outraged, they sued Burger King and named me in the lawsuit. I wasn't allowed to eat there. It was tough, because, when you're a little kid, McDonald's is where all your friends have their birthday parties, so I missed out on a lot of apple pies."
