Faye Dunaway was asked her opinion on casting Hilary Duff as Bonnie in the Bonnie and Clyde remake. Not one to beat around the bush, Faye quipped, “Couldn’t they have at least cast a real actress?”
Duff fought back, “I think that my fans that are going to go see the movie don’t even know who she is, so you know… I think it was a little unnecessary but I might be mad if I looked like that now too.”
Oh, snap. That’s what I would have said if Faye Dunaway wasn’t 68. Of course she looks like that now. What do you expect her to look like? A mermaid?
Hilary Duff is just mad Faye is right. At 27, Faye was nominated for an Oscar and at 36, actually won an Oscar. Compare that to Hilary whose greatest achievement was receiving a Razzie nomination for worst actress in 2005, 2006 and 2007. Three years in a row, baby! Nevertheless, in a fight, I’d go with Hilary. Look at those broad shoulders. You just can’t bet against that.
