Pregnant Hilary Duff Paid $100,000 NOT To Star In 'Bonnie & Clyde!'

The actress pulled out of the remake this month after discovering she’s expecting her first baby with husband Mike Comrie — but her happy news HASN’T left her without a nice paycheck!

Hilary Duff had a clause written into her Bonnie & Clyde contract, saying producers had to pay her even if she didn’t end up starring in the movie. To the tune of $100,000. That’s some baby shower gift!

Movie bosses are currently searching for a baby bump-free Bonnie, with Amanda Seyfried the current favorite.

Despite her big pay-off, Hilary seems unhappy that producers weren’t prepared to hold up production until she has popped out her baby, telling TMZ this weekend, “I don’t wanna give them any more press than they’ve already gotten off me … I think [my] baby is a little bit more exciting.”

We agree –  but should Hilary be happy with her paycheck for nothing? Or is she right to be annoyed?
