The fallout? Minimal: "This is nothing," Bromley says. Palin "has always been proud of her roots. What Sarah considers to be acceptable is very different from what people from other places have deemed acceptable. This is just another person attacking Sarah. It's another issue, another thing."
Hilary Duff vs. Faye Dunaway: The original Bonnie, Dunaway, weighed in on the casting of Duff as Bonnie in the indie remake of The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, which is expected to be released in 2010. "Couldn't they have at least cast a real actress?" said Dunaway, 67. On Tuesday, Duff , 21, responded. "I think my fans that are going to go see the movie don't even know who she is, so you know ..." she told E!, and added that Dunaway's comment "was a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that now, too.
The fallout? Severe: "It's become so bitchy," Bromley says. While Dunaway's words were strong, "What Hilary said in response related to looks was not an example of Hilary taking the high road. She doesn't usually allow herself to be tied up in controversy, so it's unusual that she has taken offense."
