Hilary Duff

Banked $100,000

For NOT Appearing in Movie

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."

I dont get this. She got pregnant so she broke the contract. Why are they paying her?

Who cares? They are probably better off without her. I don't remember one memorable movie she was in, or the last one she was in for that matter.

Word on the street is the production of this movie is in financial trouble. No wonder they can't cast real talent.

What kind of morons put together a contract that pays someone for getting pregnant? I mean I can understand paying duff not to star in something since she isn't relevant however because she gets pregnant?

I hope the check bounces.

how is it their fault she got pregnant? she knew the role she was playing and it didn't involve getting pregnant. it's her fault so why should she get paid? how silly.

Getting paid for not working. Sweet. She's a winner. She has a tough life. Good for her. They didn't want her to perform in the film as a pregnant actor, she should have sued them for 729 quadrillion dollars. This is the biggest outrage and civil rights abuse in the history of the world. This is more important than everything that has ever been or will be. Scru Hillary Muff.

Since when does anything she's attached to create publicity? Talk about an oversized and undeserved ego. LOL Oh well, she can use the money to pay for whatever she's been doing to her face.

She hardly got "knocked up". She's been with Mike Comre for years and they've been engaged for over a year. It's really too bad that people have nothing to say about good role models who have never done anything to tarnish their name or image, but honor idiots like Kim Kardashian who is famous for doing NOTHING.

come on guys if she was being fired from any other job for being pregant it would be a huge womens right issue and be a big lawsuit. it might not be a normal everyday job but it is her job and what she does for a living, its still wrong that she is let go for being pregant i think the money they gave her is more than fair.
