Hilary Duff vs. Faye Dunaway: Is truth a defense?

Whose side are you on in the Hilary Duff and Faye Dunaway battle of insults? (I refuse to call it a “catfight.”)As you know, Duff is set to star in an adaptation, not a remake, of Bonnie and Clyde, the 1967 film that earned Dunaway an Oscar nomination. Upon hearing of Duff’s casting, Dunaway reportedly said, “Couldn’t they at least cast a real actress?” Interviewed by E!’s Daily 10 while filming a guest appearance on CBS’ Ghost Whisperer (ouch!), Dufff responded with this: “I think that my fans that are gonna go see the movie don’t even know who she is…. I think it was a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that now, too.”

On the one hand, you should never diss another actress, let alone an Oscar winner. On the other, Dunaway did allegedly start it… and she appeared in a 2004 Sci Fi Channel movie called Anonymous Rex.
