Hilary Duff: Faye Dunaway Feud Redux

Hilary Duff: Faye Dunaway Feud Redux

Hilary Duff discussed her recent headline-making feud with fellow actress Faye Dunaway on Tuesday’s episode of The Bonnie Hunt Show.

The feud in a nutshell: Dunaway said Duff wasn’t a real actress and Duff called Dunaway ugly.

On the Bonnie Hunt Show, Hilary, 21, explains, “She started acting way later than I did so I think I have time to grow and grow with each project. I am learning and work hard at my craft… [What I said was mean but] it’s not okay for people to take stabs at you and to say mean things for no reason.”

Pictures below include Hilary wearing a pair of Burberry rainboots after eating at Mo’s Restaurant on Sunday in Toluca Lake, Calif.

    I think Duff needs to keep her pie-hole shut on this subject and just say no comment.

  • Arwen

    Maybe in 40 years Duff will look much worse than Dunaway….She already started with plastic surgeries. However, what is concerning is that Duff has no culture or respect for the woman who was much more talented and beautiful than her when she was the same age..

  • Pff

    umm, i think Faye Dunaway may just beat Hilary! Faye is iconic, has won an oscar and starred opposite Steve Mcqueen for goodness sake. Hilary is lizzie mcquire.
    um…I’d go for Faye anyday, there’s no way that Hilary’s portrayal of Bonnie will beat hers.

  • brett

    SHE IS RIGHT!!! FAYE HAD NO REASON TO JUST SAY THAT!!! and really, who knows, maybe duffster does develop into a great a-list actress, in time tho…

  • 1234

    actually, miss duff, faye just got FAMOUS later in life than you did.
    you need to do fact checks before opening your mouth.

    in fact, you should just keep it shut.

  • Kay

    Hilarie just needs to shut the f*ck up. I am just sooooooooooooooooooooo sick of her!!!!! Faye needs to give her a good beating.

  • JTzbitch

    wow, #7, first of all, her name is spelled Hilary, and Faye needs to shut the F*CK UP!!! Hilary is a MUCH better and sweeter person than she ever will be and i was so happy to hear the Hilary defended herself. That old cougar needs to shut up and mind her own business, just cuz she’s totally out of Hollywood doesn’t mean she has 2 put down people who r much better than she is and ever was. Id gladly beat all that plastic surgery off her face, her nose will fall off just like michael jackson

  • Halo

    Hilary still doesn’t know anything about Faye Dunaway. Faye only got noticed in her early twenties but she was acting way before that. You don’t go doing shows on Broadway without any acting experience.

    Hilary has been acting since before she had puberty boobs lol. I don’t understand why she needs an excuse for why her acting isn’t up to par. She either has the talent or she doesn’t. River Phoenix was a child actor but he had talent. Jodie Foster was a child actor and had talent. Patty Duke, Tatum O’Neal (before she went downhill) were great child actors. These people were either nominated for an Oscar or they’ve won one. So within this, I don’t think she has to be Meryl Streep but I never enjoyed Hilary Duff on screen. Everything about her screams “cheesy”.

  • gossipguy

    Hilary shouldn’t talk about looks, when she herself had some major work done on those things she calls her teeth! And as for the acting, when the best thing you’re known for is that abomination Lizzy McGuire, Faye has a right to be pissed off when a lightweight like Hilary takes on one of her most famous roles!

  • Ha!

    Someone explain to me how she’s “working on her craft”. Is that in-depth projects like Cheaper by the Dozen? Or was it with her touching portrayal in Material Girls? I’m sure she’s a perfectly nice person, but she sounds like a child with this quote. Either you’re a woman or a child, Hillary. Make up your mind – you can’t have it both ways.

  • amanda

    What a stupid girl; Faye was absolutely right, you are not an actress. It is not an offence, it is a mere statement of truth.
    Hillary is just a stupid girl who has done nothing but making pretty faces. And SHE did the offence, not Faye.

    Grow up!

  • mona

    I share the view of Halo. Hilary Duff has no right to insult Faye Dunaway, Hilary does not have the talent and intelligence, of course.

  • Ha!

    If Faye had started acting much later in life than Hillary did, shouldn’t Hillary have have had MORE time at this point to have improved her skills? Her quote makes no sense. Actually, it says the exact opposite of what she wanted to say. She should keep her mouth shut; she won’t win this one.

  • sss

    she’s right… LOVE HER!!! she’s always gorgeous <33

  • dundies

    LOL *shakes head*

  • jonny

    heres the thing… HILLARY DUFF AND HER SISTER ARE SO UGLY,THE 2 OF THEM LOOK LIKE HORSES, dont throw stones hillary, cause you definately live in a glass house

  • gjc

    I now think Hillary is AWESOME! Give it as good as you get, girl. Dunaway sucked as an actress – B&C was Beatty’s movie!

  • mslewis

    I have nothing to say, really. I was struck dumb by Hilary’s quote that she is “working on her craft”!!!!! Left me speechless.

  • wow

    Hilary is right, that old woman is not superior in any way, otherwise she wouldn’t have tried to make herself feel better by insulting a 21 year old who had done nothing wrong to her.

  • elanenergy

    The phrase “working on my craft” is sooooooooo affected….get over yourself little dumb girl. Every time you open your mouth, dumb spills out. Take a break.

  • gerard Vandenberg

    YEP, it’s bed time now, folks.
    ……….GOOD NIGHT!!

  • hilarybestfan_delfina

    i thing that Faye is in the wrong, ’cause she has start the thing, hilary doesn’t do anything, she’s disses, of course. anyway, i still love hilary, she’s amazing, SHE’S AN ACTRESS! stop say “she’s not an actress” ’cause is stupid say it. hilary i love you, and i support you 4ever. with love, one of your biggest fan <3

  • Josh

    You tell her Hilary!

  • LolaSvelt

    This talentless bint has no craft.

  • bonnie

    classy chick, someone criticises her acting abilities and- instead of defending herself- she resorts to petty name calling and personal attacks.

  • gossipgirl

    hilary you cant act. accept it. move on…don’t you have some ugly “clothing line” to promote.

    sadly i was a big fan of yours before this… i can’t be a fan of someone who has absolutely no respect for their elders. (and everyone knows older people get crankier easily they cant help it..) anyways, so not classy.

  • mickey

    Hillary Duff is such a horsey faced idiot. Faye had reason to say that because Hillary can’t act. Faye is an icon, in large part due to that role and she doesn’t want it trashed by some kid who couldn’t do a decent acting job on Disney tripe like Lizzie McGuire. Calling Faye ugly was what wasn’t okay.

    Furthermore, if Hillary is blessed to live long enough to reach Faye’s age, she too will be consider old and I bet she won’t look nearly as good as Faye.

  • Joanna Carroll

    Hilary Duff is indeed a sorry excuse for an ‘actress’; just another snot nosed, over-indulged, fake blond taking up more than her 15 minutes of fame. Hopefully, Duff is on her way out.

  • madmike

    Why is it ok for that old fart Faye Dunaway to take potshots at Hilary Duff, but when Hilary responds, she is being immature, and needs to shut up? As probably a great grand mother, Faye Dunaway should have known better. Hilary was cast in the role, it was not her idea to push for the remake. I guess they didn’t throw old Faye a bone and let her make a cameo in the movie and now she has her granny panties in a bunch.

  • Kim

    Hilary Duff is going to look like a busted train wreck at half Faye Dunaway’s age. Furthermore, you don’t turn around and call someone ugly because they call you talentless. This is a very Sarah Palin move on Duff’s part, know what I mean? Someone criticizes her chops, so she says they’re mean. Puh-lease. She can’t act, she’s a Disney production, and she’ll be burned out before she’s 30.
    If she was working on her “craft” she’d have learned a thing or two about Faye Dunaway– and wouldn’t have busted on her looks after knowing that she can actually act. Somebody should put Duff, Miley Cyrus, and all those other child-ingenues from Gossip Girl in a car and drive it off a cliff. Then I won’t have to hear about them all the time…

  • faye

    Old bitches think they can get away with insulting people, Faye needs to stop fighting with little actresses that no one cares about anyway and these 2 bitches look alike just 50 years apart.

  • DT

    Its kind of what Faye gets for starting a fight with a 21-year-old. Regardless of whether or not Faye is more beautiful and talented than Hillary, making that first comment was uncalled for.

  • Olivia

    As an actress Hilary should be able to handle a comment about her acting, every actors does and also Faye called her out on her acting but Hilary made it personal by going for appearance. If anyone is immature it is Hilary. Learn to take comments about acting better sweety because Faye is an oscar winner she calls it as she sees it. You want to talk about talent, watch Chinatown and learn from the best.

    When did being older make you less of a person, I guess Hilary ‘s young fans have no other ammunition to use to degrade Faye and so they resort to that. Sad day people.

  • Gargoyle64

    What is with these people they can’t sing , can’t act and keep getting new projects. Is it possible to shoot the new Bonnie and Clyde straight to DVD to save the trouble of transferring it after it bombs?

  • SnowWhite

    The point is, Hilary, that you have ZERO talent therefore even if Faye started acting later, that little thing called talent made her a hell of a lot better than you will ever be. So you better shut up.

  • madam ex

    This horse could never ever shine Dunaways shoes, nevermind when she’s old or even if she has 1000 movies under her belt, she will never be of Fayes caliber. Fuck you DUFF!!! Perfect name cause she is a doof and a duff.

  • Custom T

    I love Hil!

  • JAYE97x

    She is so stupid! I really don’t like her anymore.

  • Ashley

    Hilary Duff needs to suck it because Faye Dunaway will always have the best track record against Hilary. She was mommy dearest bitch!!! Try and take on that role and see how far you get. You’ll sink so deep.

  • FACT CHECK, Ms Duff

    1) Dunaway was nominated three times for Best Actress in films that were no nominated for Best Picture. She won, the films one. Why? Because she starred in the movies.

    2) Dunaway’s first movies were in 1967, one of them was Bonnie & Clyde, nominated for over 7 Academy Awards. In her first film, Dunaway was nominated for Best Actress, but had to lose against Katherine Hepburn!

    3) Duff has been acting since she was 9 years old. Dunaway was nominated and lauded as a serious actress her first time out of the box!

    4) Redford, Nicholson, etc. choose Faye as their leading ladies for a reason. They wouldn’t choose Duff to bring them coffee.

  • brie2009

    I have always wanted a pair of Burberry rain boots. But they are too expensive.

  • Duff’s Awards

    “Duff received her first Razzie nomination for worst actress for her roles in Raise Your Voice and A Cinderella Story”

    Duff’s reviews have been AWFUL for all of her films.

    Material Girls, which “her fans, skipped, grossed only 16 million.

  • Whachagunnadoboutit

    i love her… faye is a has been… go away!


    It doesnt matter if faye was a has been LOL

    I don’t get why people are so offended about what faye said, all she said was that Hilary can’t act, something i say all the time ??? In fact its something people are thinking all the time they watch her “perfect her craft”

  • Cynthia

    Faye Dunaway is old enough to be Hilary’s grandmama, and she has the balls to insult her. Well Faye is a better actress than up and coming actress Hilary true and Faye is wiser, like the old saying goes age before beauty!

  • loloa

    i am not a duff fan, but i am glad that she what she said. why should hilary have to bite her tongue obviously faye did not bite hers. this is silly elders should be encouraging youth not discouraging. is hilary the best no can she sing no but so far she has been a good or atleast decnet role model for young girls, no crocth haning out no drugs no sex tape no dui no driving backwards on the highway. i mean shessh dude… where is peace… faye is a bully she should be volunteering for some foundation instead of taking digs at someone trying

    phew ok im done, lmao

  • Wire Hangers

    Old stars don’t fay away, especially icons like Faye Dunaway, who recently locked horns with “Stepford Kid” Hilary Duff of Disney fame, who is reprising Dunaway’s Academy Award nominated role of Bonnie Parker in the remake of “Bonnie and Clyde.” While it is true that Duff’s name will sell tickets today, the question remains whether her performance will withstand the test of time, as Dunaway’s has. Only time will tell, but what is undisputed is that Faye’s Academy Award nominated and winning performances have catapulted films like “Bonnie and Clyde,” “Chinatown” and “Network” into icon status, and create a benchmark that makes many a film maker wary of doing a remake. ….
    And Dunaway will prove again this Spring that she is the consummate international movie star, not a “Barbie doll” creation of the new studio system, which runs on seven cylinders of hype and special effects and only one cylinder of talent. On May 4, 2009, Faye will have her rebuttal against Duff on the big screen when she stars as Jacqueline de Rossy, the elegant matchmaker in “Say it in Russian,” an award winning romantic thriller that debuts in theaters as part of Carmike Cinemas and Dalton Pictures’ Independent Film Series, produced by Imperia Entertainment, Inc. (OTC: IMPN). ….
    “Her acting was amazing, and she looks pretty hot in our film,” said Jeff Celentano, Director. In fact, Faye proved she was no old lady on the set when a fire sprinkler went off and the Fire Marshal tried to shut down shooting. Hiking up her one of a kind dress, the last design for a film ever made by the late renowned fashion designer, Oleg Cassini, especially for Faye, she waded through the water, giving cleanup orders to the crew. “She was like our own unsinkable Molly Brown,” said Celentano. ….
    Filmed in Paris, Moscow and Los Angeles, with exceptional cinematography and a fully orchestrated original score, “Say it in Russian” stars Russian actress Agata Gotova, in the lead role of the film as Daria Larina, the daughter of a rich Russian mafia oligarch played by Serbian actor Rade Serbedzija. Gotova’s character falls in love with the American Andrew Lamont, played by actor Steven Brand, but Andrew soon finds on a visit to Moscow that he is involved with a family that is more complicated and dangerous than he ever imagined. Faye Dunaway plays the role of Jacqueline, a Paris socialite who acts as the matchmaker for Andrew and Daria. ….
    “Say it in Russian” is the official selection for the 2009 Honolulu International Film Festival, the 2009 Omaha Film Festival, the 2008 Geneva Film Festival, and the 2008 Other Venice Film Festival, and the winner of Best Big Budget Film from the Myrtle Beach International Film Festival, a Silver World Medal from the New York Festivals 2009 International Film and Video Awards, Winner of Best in Show from The Indie Distribution Fest, as well as the winner of The Indie Fest’s Award of Excellence in Cinematography and Award of Merit for Actor Rade Sherbedgia. The producers plan a series of unprecedented Hollywood style red carpet gala events in several selected venues to kick off the theatrical release…..

    You people honestly have no right talking shit about neither of them, they were both wrong for saying things about each other, and saying Hilary is ugly and looks like this, and looks like that, check yourself out, because I can guarantee none of you are perfect or look drop-dead gorgeous..

    as for Hilary I wish her the best, let her do what she loves, you know you want respect for your craft/love, so don’t bash others for theirs, its wrong
