Hilary Duff

Banked $100,000

For NOT Appearing in Movie

8/29/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825_duff_EX_01

A preggo Hilary Duff scored a GIANT golden parachute after getting dumped from the new "Bonnie and Clyde" movie -- a severance deal worth $100,000 ... all for doing nothing.

Sources close to production tell TMZ, it's all in Hilary's play-or-pay contract -- if for some reason, production decides to terminate the actress' employment ... they'll cough up the six-figure sum to compensate her.

As we previously reported, Duff was dropped from the flick after she got knocked up.

We're told the search is still on for a Bonnie replacement -- Amanda Seyfried was approached to fill the role ... but she turned it down.

Over the weekend, Duff was volunteering at the Los Angeles Mission’s 75th End Of Summer Block Party -- when we asked about the situation.

Duff told TMZ, "I dont wanna give them any more press than they've already gotten off me ... I think [my] baby is a little bit more exciting."

Umm im not sure who writes these columns but im pretty sure you cant get knocked up when your MARRIED!!! Getting pregnant when your married is called marriage, you can only be considered knocked up when you get pregnant out of wedlock...smh tmz

You got to be kidding me. She should give that money to a food bank for people who don't have the means to feed themselves on a daily bases or to a homeless shelter. She will never niss it.............

Duff’s very anti-drama and chill, what’d ya expect? Not a sue someone for saying the name. TMZ, you were bothering her at a homeless shelter? Her ehhh expression made me laugh. I'm surprised she answered. She obviously does not want to say anything of the crappy film. Would you if you had to keep putting your schedule off for it and then they don't accommodate you back? After, 2 drop reports fake/real as news. Anyway I will take the 100k she doesn't need it. No wonder these celebs are always seen shopping it up.

P.S. Photo of Jobs is wrong! Low. /Harv -z:/

West Coast Baby--how is it a scam? They dropped her because she is pregnant. In most states that could lead to a legal case. You can't fire someone for being pregnant, so she had a right to be paid for being dropped. They can't tell her when she can and cannot have children with her husband.

Shes a thief. She knew before she got pregnant, she would not be able to work on a low budget action movie. Yet, she did it anyways. How did she plan on carry a gun and running fast with her hands on her lower back wearing a maternity dress?!

Amanda Seyfried would have "rocked" it, but maybe she had "better" prospects already in line (very likely). How about Abbie Cornish or Rachel Nichols??????

Just pick someone . . .

"I don't wanna give them any more press than they've already gotten off me." She thinks this was a publicity stunt? Bonnie Parker wasn't pregnant when she was with Clyde Barrow. Does she think that they had to alter history to accommodate her?

UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan has complained that Hillary Duff stole her idea about getting paid not to do movies. Lohan claims she has been working on and fine tuning this strategy for years, waiting for the right moment to capitalize on it, but Duff jumped in before Lohan had a chance to parlay it into income.
