Vivica Fox could've told Steve Martin that Ambien + gambling (gAmbienling?) = bad idea. IF she were a psychic friend. Which she's NOT. Clearly.

Can't decide if Katie Holmes is trying to channel a Robert Palmer video girl or an extra from "Victor/Victoria." Either way, bad idea.

A new kid for Bobby Brown? His prerogative. And, yes, bad idea.

Hey, Kelly Clarkson. Just walk away. Clay's got the gay ex-Idol thing covered.

OOH! You go, Hilary Duff! You know, she has a point. What has Faye Dunaway done since she killed her career with "Mommie Dearest" and that cheesecloth-lit cameo in the Brosnan/Russo "The Thomas Crown Affair"?

Hey, Tom Cruise, back to geography class: "He thanked one questioner with the Spanish 'gracias' _ though Brazilians speak Portuguese. And he said he enjoys the tango _ the traditional dance of neighboring Argentina."

Next up: TomKat Trip to Tobago so he can yell, "I love you Trinidad" and pick up where Whitney Houston left off.

Hilary Duff, you don't need the Psychic Friends Network (with or without Vivica A. Fox fronting for it) to know that someday you'll get older too, but only if you're lucky. However, unlike Faye Dunaway, you'll still be a talentless hack, so STFU.

On the octopuplet watch, the mom has hired a publicist, and is apparently miffed that she's not being inundated with public adulation and manufacturer offers of free products for her litter. (I wonder if she underwent her fertility procedure outside the US.)

Laughing hysterically at Hillary Duff. Because Faye Dunaway should have just smiled and nodded because it's so obvious that Hillary Duff doesn't possess the chops she once had. And, you know, Supergirl was *such* a high quality film.

Per Jude Law - whatever. Kevyn Aucoin already let the world know that with the right makeup and wigs, women can look like men and men can look like women. They've got Eddie Izzard in the movie already - I'm sure he was giving Jude plenty of tips on how to run in high heels.

I've never been a huge Faye Dunaway fan, but there's no doubt that she was the biggest female movie star of the 70's. She was it. The pinnacle.

And what has Hilary Duff done? Nothing. A Disney show as a teenager. She's worse than a has-been; she's a never been and never will be. So she should show a little respect.

Not to mention that Faye Dunaway has aged gracefully, whereas if Hilary Duff's fat ugly mom is any indication, Duff should be hitting the trailer park with a half-smoked Parliament and Colt45 dribbling down her saggy breasts by the time she's 35.

I don't have a dog in the Duff-Dunaway rumble, being too young to remember Dunaway at her peak and too old to care anything about Duff. But I have to say, and I mean this in the most mature way, Faye started it. If she'd shown a little class in the first place and kept her mouth shut, there wouldn't be any kerfuffle at all.

Posted by: Wikijen | February 4, 2009 12:38 PM | Report abuse

I have to say that I found Faye's comments very unprofessional and petty. Yes, she is the better actress. Yes, she was "it" in the 70s. Yes, she was prettier than Hillary Duff, but was her words really necessary and do you expect someone to just take it.

I am also not a Hillary Duff fan either. What's up with the STFU comments too?

Please do not let Bobby Brown anywhere near the octopuplet mom. BTW, those babies were born by implanted embryos. Not fertility drugs, which would have been one thing. But, having the embryos made, then implanting them requires a bit more effort than taking drugs. I agree it was probably South of the Border.

Don't know what Faye Dunaway said about Hillary Duff's acting chops or lack thereof (for which her worst crime is probably prosaic stating of the obvious), but Duff's comeback was so childish and stupid it boggles the mind. Dunaway at Duff's age was an ageless beauty compared to mall girl Duff--can't imagine the latter will age nearly as well.

I have to disagree with all 3 of your points.
1. Hillary is much prettier than Faye ever was. (and I am in my 40's, so I do remember Faye when she was young)
2. Neither is a great actress. Faye has had 2 good roles in 40 years. Her other acting jobs were terrible. Supergirl, Dunston Checks In, anyone?
3. When she got the role of Bonnie she was more of a nobody then Hillary is now. Faye was an unknown while Hillary has some teen and preteen fans already.

I've stayed out of the Dunanway/Duff Dust-up till now. Faye should've kept her mouth shut. Be the bigger person. But if you are going to complain, complain about the fact that they are remaking one of your signature roles instead of turning to the likes of sorcerers_cat to write an original and compelling script. Hilary, this is what you should've said, "While I disagree with Ms. Dunaway's assessment of my acting ability, right now I am focused on trying to show the respect and dignity this role requires of me."

Faye, everyone deserves to have a break out role, yes she may have become famous because of a lame Disney show, but I'm assuming the producers who hired her have made sure that she could handle such a role.

Thank you Nosy! Many classic and excellent films--Three Days of the Condor still one of the best ever! Network timeless. Chinatown a classic. Thomas Crown (both of them even if she only has a cameo in the second) and Don Juan delightful. Bonnie and Clyde groundbreaking. 3 Oscar noms, one win. 10 Globe noms, three wins. That covers the acting chops, I think. Hillary will never compile a resume like that.

td, how can you leave out Three Days of the Condor?! Just an aside, I often cite it when I'm doing script analysis as an antidote to the current trend of writing suspense/mystery or thrillers where something happens, someone in the scene describes what happened, and in the next scene someone recaps what just happened and exactly what it means to the overall plot. Condor kept you guessing, drawing you in, as in the dark as the protagonists. Great stuff.

td in Baltimore, you really should add Three Days of the Condor to your Netflix -- it's quite the suspenseful thriller.

While I've never been in Faye Dunaway's fan club, I understand her annoyance with having her defining role remade with an actress of barely-perceptible talent. And she was calling out Ms. Duff on her professional abilities, perfectly fair in my opinion. What's not fair is Ms. Duff's retort that takes on Ms. Dunaway's appearance. In other words, Hilary, honey, you sound like the adolescent you are: "I'm a talentless hack, well you're old and ugly." Real mature there, girl, and didn't win you any benefit-of-the-doubt points from me re your movie.
