That Dangerous Looking Homeless Lady Was Actually Faye Dunaway

The Drama Book Shop, the West 40th Street treasure for theater folk and those that care about them, once called the police on an Oscar winner!

This is from the New York Times article about the place.


"Stars shop without fear of harassment by the star-struck, and the occasional out-of-work thespian has tried to bunk in the basement.

"But the one time the store summoned the police to deal with an oddball intruder, it rued doing so.

"The bizarre browser in the dirty raincoat carrying an armload of tattered shopping bags turned out to be an overly incognito Faye Dunaway.

"She was just looking for a play."


Don't fuck with her, fellas!

It's not her first time at a drama bookshop!

Maybe someday Ms. Dunaway can become a novelty elderly media personality like Betty White or the late George Burns. And if she has to resort to being on TV and out-cat fighting Joan Rivers or Cloris Leachman for the crown, my guess is that Faye is up to the task.

I feel sorry for the cops. Can you imagine what a reading they were in for?

Who could forget her 2005 reality show, "The Starlet" where terrified aspiring actresses had to act out scenes in front of La Dunaway. At the end of each show, the cameras would creep into a closeup of her arched eyebrows and plumped-up cheekbones, as she would dismissively and cattily say to the hapless departing actress of the week,  "Don't call us...we'll call you".  A camp classic...even by Dunaway standards!

WHAT is La Dunaway wearing and what is that photo from?

It looks suspiciously like Julie Newmar's costume in "Li'l Abner."

send an assistant to pick up your things next time to avoid the ruckus....or is creating a ruckus THE point?

I hope she's not planning a remake of Cries and Whispers, where one of the characters slashes her vajayjay with a piece of broken glass.... Come to think of it, I hope she IS planning a remake of Cries and Whispers, etc.

In regard to Miss Dunaway, need one even ask?

And not to be unkind, but the days of hot-and-cold running assistants ran out long ago.  Her last work was a supporting part in a Hallmark TV move, two years ago.  Her last payday of any size was likely "A Handmaid's Tale" - in 1990.

 I know what you mean. I'll go further and say the disguise was unnecessary because MISS Dunaway's face is unrecognizable these days.In regards to $$$$, why not just call up the shop ask for what you need and have it delivered?!EXTRA drama.
