The actress — best remembered for her over-the-top portrayal of screen icon Joan Crawford in the 1981 movie “Mommie Dearest” — is accused of creating a “hostile” work enviro…
So diva and extremely unprofessional and horrid woman actress Faye Dunaway has been fired from the Broadway production of Tea at Five, a show all about Katherine Hepburn.
The July 10 performance was canceled moments before curtain because Dunaway slapped and threw things at crew members who were trying to put on her wig, sources say. Enraged at the cancellation, Dunaway began “verbally abusing” the crew. They were “fearful for their safety,” said one source.
But her behavior was unsettling at an early photo shoot. Someone gave her a salad for lunch and she threw it on the floor. She was watching her weight and said the salad would be better on the floor than in her hand.
She was frequently late for rehearsals, sometimes up to two hours, sources say. She refused to allow anyone to look at her during rehearsals, including the director and the playwright. Although she had the script for six months, sources claim she was never able to learn her lines. During the run of the play at Huntington she was fed lines and blocking through an earpiece.
She really hates the color white. This isn't the first time she's been difficult.
Shes honestly irl Mommie Dearest.
