Hilary Duff was slated to star in a new Bonnie and Clyde movie and then she went and got pregnant so they dropped her. Its only fair since I don’t think Bonnie was pregnant during her bank robberies (lol)!
Hilary Duff just learned a cold, hard lesson — Hollywood’s not hiring a lot of pregnant women to play legendary bank robbers … which is why she just got dropped from “The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.”
Duff was supposed to play Bonnie Parker in the upcoming film … but sources involved in the production tell us they’re moving forward sans Hilary — a decision that was made right after Hil broke her baby news last week.
We’re told the director is already shopping for a new Bonnie, and the split was amicable. As one source put it, “Hilary wonâ€™t be available until next June. If we could wait we would.â€ Shooting is scheduled for this Fall.
If prego Duff isn’t cool with the switch this could be another Tylo Hunter situation — the actress who won a $4.8 million judgment when pregnancy cost her a “Melrose Place” role.
Hilary’s rep has not returned calls.
Side note: producers are also looking for a new Clyde due to scheduling conflicts with Kevin Zegers. We’re assuming he’s not pregnant.
