Hilary Duff, Faye Dunaway

Duff vs. Dunaway may turn out to be more exciting than the Bonnie and Clyde remake.

Former Disney queen Hilary Duff is set to tackle Faye Dunaway's legendary role of Bonnie Parker, one-half of crime's notorious duo, in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde — news that did not sit well with Dunaway. "Couldn't they at least cast a real actress?" Dunaway reportedly scoffed last week.

Well, if you're gonna dish it out, you better be able to take it, Faye. Duff hit back at against the Oscar-winning screen legend on Tuesday. "I think that my fans that are going to go see the movie don't even know who she is," she told E! News. "I think it was a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that now, too."

Ouch.

So the score is one apiece now. Who will strike next? What do you think of the war of words? Should Dunaway be dismissive of Lizzie McGuire's acting chops? Has Duff crossed the line with Mommie Dearest?
