Don't Mess with the Duff



We told you earlier that former teen queen and Disney starlet Hilary Duff landed the role of Bonnie in a remake of Bonnie and Clyde. Upon hearing about the casting decision Faye Dunaway, who was the original Bonnie, lashed out claiming that Duff wasn't a 'real' actress. I'm not sure what defines a 'real' actress, but apparently Duff ain't it.
Not to be dissed and dismissed, Hilary recently fired back with the following:
"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."
Ouch. First of all, good for Hilary. For someone who hasn't had a respectable role in film for...well...maybe ever...she certainly can hold her own against the Oscar winning Dunaway. I'm thinking we should lock the two of them in a room together and let them hash it out. Or, better yet, they could settle their score Miley style and have a YouTube dance/sing off. I like the former better.

Hilary Duff could never pull off the classic role. EVER. I agree with Faye Dunaway. Duff really isn't a "real" actress. She hasn't had the roles to prove herself. Then again maybe this will be the one.

Although I have to say, that Duff somewhat resembles the young Faye in the movie. I also agree and do not think that she would be able to pull it off.

PEOPLE ALWAYS ACCUSE WHOM THEY THINK IS NOT CRDITABLE ENOUGH. FAYE STARTED JUST ANYONE ELSE:SMALL. I'VE SEEN FAYES MOVIES, AND SHE'S ALRIGHT. I AM INVOLVED WITH MOVIE MAKING. I HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR ALL INVOLVED. HILARY HAS TALENT. IS THAT MANY OF US ONLY THINK OF HER AS THIS KID DOING DISNEY...FORGET ABOUT IT. SHE WILL PULL IT OF BECAUSE THIS IS A DIFFERENT MOVIE. A NEW MOVIE. DIFFERENT ACTOTRS AND MOVIE MAKERS. SHE AND ALL INVOLVED NOT NEED TO THINK OF THE ORIGINAL. THIS WILL BE THEIR MOVIE:NOT FAYES OR ANYONE ELSES. FAYE NEEDS TO LET IT GO, WETHER THE MOVIE IS A HIT OR NOT. FAYES HAS A NAME THAT STICKS AND IS A DECENT NAME. VERY GOOD NAME. THATS WHAT GAVE HER THIS "LEGEND" TITLE. MOVE ON FAYE. AND BE MATURE(KIND AND REASONABLE). HILARY WILL DO JUST FINE. JUST DON'T, TO ALL YOU WHO ONLY APPROVE OF "ORIGINALS", EXPECT AND DESIRE THE SAME AS. IT'S NOT MATURE AND IT'S NOT REASONABLE. LETS MOVE ON.

Don't mess with Dunaway. End of story. Hilary is dead meat. This movie shouldn't even be made. Leave the classics alone and be creative!
