Hilary Duff earns $100k for not appearing in movie

Hilary Duff, who recently announced that she’s expecting a baby with husband Mike Comrie, will get $100,000 as severance after being dumped from the new Bonnie and Clyde movie, The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Apparently, Hilary had a clause in her contract that stated she was to be paid the sum if production decided to terminate her employment, even if it was due to pregnancy. Producers are still looking for a replacement after Amanda Seyfried was approached last week to fill in as the infamous 1930’s bank robber Bonnie Parker, but turned it down. Meanwhile, Hilary gave up her Saturday to volunteer at a Los Angeles Mission charity event to raise money for the homeless, along with her sister, Haylie. Hilary tweeted prior to the event: “Excited to head downtown to the la mission event today with @HaylieK such a great cause! We will be handing out backpacks (with) school supplies!”

    I wish I could earn $100,000 for appearing in a movie or NOT appearing in one. That’d cover my expenses for several years.

    Good for her, smart young woman. Compared to other actors, singers and musicians who in previous decades were taken advantage of by managers and corporations.

    Good luck with the charity event and having a healthy baby.

    These studios have that kind of cash to throw around…just think of what that money could’ve been used for and they just have it there to hand to an actress, who really isn’t even that good (no hate, just fact), for no longer being in the movie.

    @ke And where do you think they get that kind of money from?? From us, obviously. If No One went to the movies, they wouldn’t have that much too give her. No, I’m just trying to make a point, Not trying to get people to stop going to the movies. I love movies, at times.
